Jackson Cannery - Ben Folds Five

stop the bus
I wanna be lonely
when seconds pass slowly
and years go flying by
you gotta stop the bus
and get off here
enough's enough,
and I'm leaving this factory

and all she wants
is food on the table
and I won't be able
to bring it home
and all I want, come on
'cause all I need
yeah, 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,
but big brother got the keys
and I got Jackson Cannery

wah-oh
wah-oh
wah-oh
wah-oh

millionaires
and mill rats live side by side
messed up my brother's mind
who's far from Earth
and tell me what's he worth? (nothing!)
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,
but big brother got the keys
and I got Jackson Cannery

wah-oh
(come on.)
wah-oh
wah-oh
(that's pretty good, try it again!)
(think so?)
wah-oh

it's 4 in the morning
Mother don't know
that I'm going far away
she's whispering to the moon:
"I hope he don't,
join you soon"

Baby Boss
climbs up on his soapbox
Great Caesar's 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, but
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
