Track Name: Working Till The End Of Time
I’m working till the end of time
I’m working till the end of time
I’m working till the end of time
I’ve got no time

I’ve been at work since half past five
At this Cambridge bar and restaurant
I get a little break around nine
And then I’ve got to go back to giving people what they want

I’m just a guy who gets paid just enough to keep him alive

That’s why I’m working till the end of time
I’m working till the end of time
I’m working till the end of time
I’ve got no time

I asked the bartender out for coffee
She said she’d like to, but I should know she’s seeing someone
She said to take her number in case I need a shift covered
I said, hey, whatever you want

We’re just two people who get paid just enough to keep us alive

And anyway, I’m working till the end of time
I’m working till the end of time
I’m working till the end of time
So I’ve got no time

When my shift doesn’t start for an hour
And I’ve got no one to meet
I take a long walk past the garden
Down Sacramento Street

And then I work until the end of time
I work until the end of time
I work until the end of time
I get no time

I’m working till the end of time
I’m working till the end of time
I’m working till the end of time
I’ve got no time

Oh no, I’m just a guy who gets paid just enough to keep him alive
Track Name: Your Canadian Boyfriend
Your boyfriend who lives in Canada
Is a figment of your self-isolation
While here in Massachusetts, you’re proving our chemistry useless
Shooting pool at the Watering Hole with the god of reservations

Take a good look at your neighbor
And put your smart phone away
Face what’s right in front of you
Because we’re living in the USA

You’re bound to lose touch before you get to do much touching
With your Canadian friend
But if you want to make some time with your friend around the corner
Then you won’t have to wait for that long weekend

Because your boyfriend who lives in Canada
Whom you met at a four-day convention
Could meet you halfway in Syracuse, that’s true,
But it’s a five-hour drive, and that’s a reasonable excuse

To take a good long look at your neighbor
And turn that Skype cam away
Face what’s right in front of you
Start living in the USA

Face what’s right in front of you
Before it gets out of your way
