Treading water

I’m tired of living day to day
working just to watch it fade away
struggling hard to earn a little more
and watching it flow back out that door

the time from earn to pay has shifted
until it feels as if it’s drifted
straight from when the paycheck’s filled
right to when the debt is billed

sick and tired of feeling caught
feeling this ain’t how it ought
to be at this point in my life
tired of wanting, tired of strife

wanting just to get away
find a different, better way
than treading water and getting older
with all the world upon my shoulders
