lyrics

Head down on the table
Quiet and glum
The rules are simple
Don't praise anyone

Local is terrible
It's never any fun
No mass exposure
An audience of one

A life at sea isn't easy
No escape from the men around
No place for emotion
A constant proving ground

Hiding drink under the table
Hungover on Christmas Day
Living in a fantasy
That everything's OK

Old school operations
The way its always been done
Speaking out of turn
Gets a ruler off your thumb

Old school operations
The way its always been done
Speaking out of turn
Gets a ruler off your thumb

October SAD syndrome
Another bleak winter
Thought hibernation
The spring won't linger

Exams were easy
I failed my real agenda
They don't know that
Blowing tales to Brenda

Nobody in this closed loop
Knows internal struggles
Didn't bring up a fool
In this tiny bubble

Breaking down is not an option
Even with diagnosis
Hide your ignorance son
It's better that nobody knows

Old school operations
The way its always been done
Speaking out of turn
Gets a ruler off your thumb

Old school operations
The way its always been done
Speaking out of turn
Gets a ruler off your thumb

Before the meeting
I had a lot to say
In the heat of the moment
Words fell away

Afterwards
Jokes flew in my head
No cocky response
Went flat instead

Being a recluse
Gets things done
Coping with distractions
Isn't very fun

Typing instead of speaking
Staring at screens
Stalking online
Before the rise of machines

Old school operations
The way its always been done
Speaking out of turn
Gets a ruler off your thumb

Old school operations
The way its always been done
Speaking out of turn
Gets a ruler off your thumb
