9 to 5

As the day wears on
My soul wears out
Failure and fatigue
Follow me throughout the day
Thankfully, at the end,
You’ll clean them both away

Nose to the grindstone
Struggling to feel alive
Salt mining on my own
In the vein of nine to five

As the sun sets daily
My soul soul rises nightly
Life and rest
Constantly draw me home
Finally, in the dark,
You end my time alone
