The Lyrics

Musings of what my Philosophy degree has gotten me so far.
What you gonna do when you get out of school?
I'm gonna get a real job
What do you consider real?
Work, natural work
I'm in heaven
With my groceries, my bagging groceries
There's no beginning and there is no end
Time isn't present in that dimension
I’ll quote Descartes
While I’m bagging, and doing a carryout
It's one time I'm glad I am a man
It’s like I'm thinking, therefore I’m being
I'm in big debt
With the Fedloan, Fedloan student loan
Zeno’s musings such as motion and the arrow
Raise expectations to a new intention
No one can move
…And live the Categorical, Categorical Imperative
Writin’ and a stressin’ over Kant and Malebranche
Modernism’s expanding with Hume and Leibniz
Ibn Sina Sina
Ibn Sina Sina
Ibn Sina Sina
Ibn Rushd
All the weekend
employee working
I surely miss life
I used to go to school and dream big
(I went insane back when I took cocaine)
(Unintelligible German speaking)
"MacKinnon, MacKinnon, MacKinnon, MacKinnon"
"MacKinnon, MacKinnon, MacKinnon, MacKinnon"
Skimming and Citing the Jean Paul Sartre
Who needs to think when you have Bad Faith?
With a hippie-the-hip and a hippie-the-hop
Who needs to think when you have Bad Faith?
"MacKinnon, MacKinnon, MacKinnon, MacKinnon"
Who needs to think when you have Bad Faith?
"MacKinnon, MacKinnon, MacKinnon, MacKinnon"
Focault, Focault
Focault, Focault
If you see him
Please remind him, unhappy employee
Well he's the philosopher at Work
He's got a greater depth of meaning
Well he's the philosopher at Work
He's so deep
