lyrics

I swear this tie is tightening, like I’m dangling from some gallows
The secretary’s crying, takes all I’ve got to keep my mouth closed
Crossed the line so much, I’d kill him if he weren’t my boss
With rage is what I’m filled. Christ, now what does he want?

You’re kind of addicted to being flawless
You’re going to help out, cause you’re so kind
You know you’re an asset to the whole office
No really, you succeed in all you try

The coffee’s pretty bitter, as are all of his wrecked subjects
Spend the day on Twitter, hoping he’ll say “clean out your desk”
Quit the bigoted drivel; he says that god hates gays
Demeans and belittles people when he won’t get his way

You’re kind of addicted to being flawless
You’re going to help out, cause you’re so kind
You know you’re an asset to the whole office
No really, you succeed in all you try

I’ve found myself day-dreaming the same thing for nearly two years
Walk up to his door and when it opens slit his throat to both ears
Still, I’m stuck in this tower, as spineless as I am
“Subordinate coward”, will surely read my epitaph

(You’re kind of addicted)
You’re kind of addicted to being flawless
(We’re grateful they found someone so profound, you’re going to help out)
You’re going to help out, cause you’re so kind
(The staff’s all in debt cause you’re heaven-sent; you know you’re an asset)
You know you’re an asset to the whole office
(At no point in time do we wish you’d die; you really succeed in all you try)
No really, you succeed in all you try
