lyrics

BABY STEPS

Whadja wanna be when you grew up?
Before you were told that you just weren’t good enough
Did you wanna be the astronaut exploring outer space?
Or did you wanna take people’s homes
‘Cause you work for the bank?

Where can you sell your soul in a city called Chicago
Where your hopes and dreams count for shit
Where everybody knows you gotta step on toes
Because there’s no roast beef in the piggy market

So it’s baby steps up the ladder
(Who said life isn't fair?)
Just to kick out every peg
(Who said life isn't fair?)
Me, I empty out my bladder
(Who said life isn't fair?)
On those things that make you
On those things that make you beg

Yea when I grow up I wanna fight crime
But there’s no Bruce Wayne in the unemployment line
So why do we play the game
When we know we’ll always lose
I used to play outside
But now I just turn screws

Where can you sell your soul in a city called Chicago
Where your hopes and dreams count for shit
Where everybody knows you gotta step on toes
Because there’s no roast beef in the piggy market

So it’s baby steps up the ladder
(Who said life isn't fair?)
Just to kick out every peg
(Who said life isn't fair?)
Me, I empty out my bladder
(Who said life isn't fair?)
On those things that make you
On those things that make you beg
