Jackson Cannery

Original Artist: Ben Folds

Stop the bus,
I wanna be lonely,
When seconds pass slowly,
The years go flying by,
You gotta stop the bus,
And get off here,
Enough's enough,
And I'm leaving this factory.


All she wants,
Is food on the table,
And I won't be able to bring it home,
No I won't come on.
'Cause all I need is free,
'Cause I'm a factory.


Did Mother Nature tell you?
"Boy you come and go as you please"
That's what she said to me,
Big brother got the keys and I got Jackson Cannery.


Millionaires and Millrats live side by side,
Next to my brothers mind,
He's far from Earth,
Tell me what's he worth?
The same as you,
The same as me,
In this factory.


Did Mother Nature tell you?
"Boy you come and go as you please"
That's what she said to me,
Big brother got the keys and I got Jackson Cannery.


It's four in the morning,
Mother don't know that I'm going far away,
She's whispering to the moon,
"I hope I don't join you soon"


Baby boss climbs up on his soapbox,
Grey Caesars ghost knows what's best for me.
Stop the bus.


Did Mother Nature tell you?
"Boy you come and go as you please"
That's what she said to me,
Big brother got the keys and I got Jackson Cannery,
Big brother got the keys and I got Jackson Cannery,
Big brother got the keys and I got Jackson Cannery.
