You gotta suspend disbelief if you wanna get through life
Virgil was a worker on an assembly line
Dreaming of the day he'd become a retiree
40 hours week and a little bit of overtime
with a house and car and a boat and a credit card tree
Somewhere in midlife crisis he began to see
That monster truck with the monster wheels
wasn't gonna set him free


Mr. Roberts was a big bank president
dreaming of his golden parachute
Either through rising stocks or a gub'ment bailout
Don't get jealous cause that's only half the truth
We've been payin' his taxes
and to make matters worse
that parachute won't save him
You never see a UHaul behind a hearse


Politicians on my TV
telling me war is peace
How am I supposed to keep movin'?
Guess I'll have to suspend my disbelief
