I never thought I’d say the words:
‘I’m still renting at 30’
I’m still renting at 30
I’m still renting at 30

I never thought I’d say the words:
‘I’m not happy at 30.’
I’m not happy at 30
I’m not happy at 30

I never thought I’d say the words:
‘Will I ever buy at 40?’
Will I ever buy at 40?
Will I ever buy at 40?

I never thought I’d say the words:
‘Will I ever buy at 50?’
Will I ever buy at 50?
Will I ever buy at 50?

I never thought I’d say the words:
‘Will I be homeless at 60?’
Will I be homeless at 60?
Will I be homeless at 60?

I never thought I’d say the words:
‘Will I be renting at 70?’
Will I be renting at 70?
Will I be renting at 70?

I never thought I’d say the words:
‘Will I be renting at 80?’
Will I be renting at 80?
Will I be renting at 80?

I never thought I’d say the words:
‘Is this system working?’
Is this system working?
Is this system working?

I never thought I’d say the words
Is this system really this f**ked in the head?
