Sleater-Kinney – Price Tag Lyrics

The bells go off, the buzzer calls1
The traffic starts to buzz2
The clothes are stiff, the fabrics itch
The fit’s a little rough
But I sunk it in, yeah every skin3
Tryna fit inside the glow
I scrambled eggs, from little legs
The day’s off in a rush4
It’s 9 AM, we must clock in
The system waits for us5
I stock the shelves, I work the rows
The product’s all I…6
If I could flip the switch, the system fix
I could move us to the top7
And numbers roar, it’s time to go
But never fast enough8

We never really checked, we never checked the price tag
The cost comes in, it’s gonna be high9
We love our bargains, we love the prices so low
With the good job’s gone, it’s gonna be rough10

In the market, the kids are starvin’11
They reach for the good stuff
But stay off label, just ’til we’re able12
To save a little up
The next thing when the ship comes in
No more worry for us
Just get movin’, the wheels keep turning
It’s time to go pay up13

We never really checked, we never checked the price tag
The cost comes in, it’s gonna be high
We love our bargains, we love the prices so low
With the good job’s gone, it’s gonna be rough

I was lured by the devil, I was lured by the cost14
I was lured by the fear the love we had was lost
I was blind by the money, I was numb from the greed
I’ll take god when I’m ready
I’ll choose sin ’til I leave15

We never really checked, we never checked the price tag
The cost comes in, it’s gonna be high
We love our bargains, we love the prices so low
With the good job’s gone, it’s gonna be rough

I was lured by the devil, I was lured by the cost
I was lured by the fear the love we had was lost
I was blind by the money, I was numb from the greed
I’ll take god when I’m ready
I’ll choose sin ’til I leave16
