The Lyrics

For any given product made for public consumption, there's approximately a bajillion steps between concept and release. And when "release" turns into "pandemonium", there must be some poor bastard who has to go over every single step to find out what went wrong...
The process of creation could drive anyone mad
So workin' out which doofus filled this thing with defects
I just feel drafted
Not what I desired when I was first hired
The boss thinks I'm smarter than I am, my head hurts harder
Brain's not sharpened
I'm goin' over all the numbers
Hopin' that I'll find the centre

The design phase (-sign phase) fills my head space (head space)
It's such a pain (it's such a pain), a total pain
"Mine set itself on fire!" "Mine turned my milk sour!"
This thing looks screwed to hell, must find how it got that way

Are the blueprints damnin'? Has QC just been slackin'?
Was the first concept hazy? Gonna drive me crazy
Sort through this nonsense
I don't have the patience for interviews, can't take it
But I have to face it to fix all the damage
The product has managed
Sick of goin' over all the numbers
Where's the dumbass epicentre?

The design phase (-sign phase) fills my head space (head space)
Might go insane (might go insane), batshit insane
"Mine deflated my tires!" "Mine stole all my flour!"
Somethin' has not gone well, the "why" is not on my plate

Was released in this state
Of brokenness and pain
Big mood, I can relate

Stuck here pourin' over these stupid numbers
Until I can find the bloody answer
If there's one answer, is "lunch" an answer?

You'd think that there'd be a team of poor bastards, but that'd make sense, and when did making sense become commonplace?
