lyrics

Luxury Hotel
So I’m in the employee breakroom of a luxury hotel,
Sitting under a sign that reads, “No spitting on floor”,
And I fight off the flies to finish my food
And make my way to the employee bathroom
Where there’s another sign that reminds me
“Employees must wash hands”.
And I do.
Believe me,
I wash my hands of all the copies I’ve made for personal use,
I wash my hands of all the faxes and phone calls I’ve made on company time…
And speaking of time,
I noticed they deducted my check for a 30-minute break
that I never got to take
while watching the blue-bloods talk down
to the blue-collars and push around
their money
and enormous belly
and the greaseball lawyers from out of town
tell stupid jokes and slap $20s down.
