Survive You

I was once a bright young thing, on my way, straight to the top

Then suddenly you fell in my way like a drunken, overprivileged roadblock

What did I do to deserve this constant stream of ignominy?

All I ever wanted to do was serve the Board, faithfully

I get blamed for the mistakes you make, they bounce off you and stick to me

But it won’t always be this way, just you wait, you will see

I will survive you, I've just got to weather the storm

I’ll thrive without you, I’ll be here long after you've gone

I will, survive, I will survive you

I will, survive, I will survive you

If you were another employee, you’d be dead and gone and out of my way

You're just coasting on the Geistman name, a family tree that's withered away

The way you act makes life expectancies around you real bleak

Unless that David’s a miracle worker, they’ll be dead in a week

Gonna keep you out the Cosmic Lounge, until you learn

Gonna keep puttin’ feet in your mouth, until you learn

I will survive you, I've just got to weather the storm

I’ll thrive without you, I’ll be here long after you've gone

I will, survive, I will survive you

I will, survive, I will survive you

You'll be dead, and I’ll be alive, I will survive, I will survive x4
