Bill Collector

no, i ain’t got it on me 

there is none left 

my debt is overflowing 

but the bills ain’t stop coming yet 

 

so no…

i cannot make a payment and have no desire to

i can’t summon the interest in me 

to give you the money 

i’m gonna need for groceries  

 

stop calling me 

i said the same thing a month ago 

i might have the same reply in 3 

so stop bothering me 

 

i am working through this thang slowly… 

one day i might reach out to you out of the blue 

trying to get right 

till then sit tight 

 

i use to sit at a desk 8 hours a day

didn’t equal what i was being paid

so i quit 

and no i don’t care 

when i tell you i don’t got it 

best believe it’s not here

 

this is the tipping point before the breakthrough,

the faint smell of melancholy in the air

like a pop quiz before holiday vacation 

came too quick…

and early to soon…

 

do you have the answers? 

no, so it’s guessing time 

past due… don’t forget… 

forever on the line

 

no, i ain’t got it on me 

there is none left 

my debt is overflowing 

but the bills ain’t stop coming yet 

at some point i’m gonna pay you 

if i don’t forget 

but i wouldn’t hold your breath
