Retail Hell – Darryl Woodbury

My alarm goes off, awaken from a dream
Another shitty day and I just want to scream
Suicidal thoughts as I get out of bed
Shower and get to work, wishing I was dead
Stupid morning rallies, just a circle jerk
I need to get out of this line of work
People come in with their asshole kids
Screaming in your face with breath that smells like shit
Oh, here we go with a line of returns
I’m silently hoping that the whole world burns!

I used to be a man
I used to be happy
But now I’m just worthless shell of a being
Who hates the whole human race
I’m ten seconds away from maniacally screaming
And trashing everything in this place!

Cleaning all the fitting rooms, people are pigs
There has to be a better way of living than this
Another soccer mom asking for a discount
Wants the policies changed on her account
I don’t make the rules, I’m just a wage slave
Go to the CEO and unleash your rage
Instead you want to take your anger out on me
You’re getting on my nerves, just leave me be!

I used to be human
I used to feel whole
But now I’m just empty and waiting for death
Cause then I think I’ll finally smile
Going home depressed ‘cause I feel so worthless and it’s been that way for awhile!

Retail! Is hell!
Retail! Is hell!
Retail! Is hell!
Retail! Is hell!


Darryl Woodbury – I Wish I Could

I wish I could hold you in my arms
Until your pain goes away
To keep you safe from harm
So you can see a brighter day
To kiss you sweetly
Not expecting sex
To be with you weekly
Wondering what happens next
To hold your hand, my gentle lady
Knowing you’re a treasure
You have removed the darkness greatly
And have made me believe beyond measure.
