Saw it coming
I read the words
Peeling messages
in the sunburn

Clouds are clearing
I see the stairs
I'ts my last day of work
forever here

and on the escalator
I waved goodbye
I hate to say i told you so
but that's what's on my mind

I told you so
I told you many times
I sent an email to everyone
but I got no reply

I worked the day
punched out at ten
this is the beginning
the beginning of the end

Wore my best suit
pressed my dress pants
Caught myself looking at me
in the glass
