average american boy

original:

he's not clean shaven,
he just couldn't grow a beard
and he's not a pretty boy
in fact he's pretty ugly
the nicest boy you'll ever see
but he never gets the girls
and he's content from 9-5
asleep from 10-4
he used to have his dreams
but he sold them for an iou
and when he's reminded
he shrugs and goes for a run
thirty minutes later,
the memory is gone
and the only dream he's got
is paid vacation time

current edit:

and he's content from 9-5
and sleeps from 10-4
he's forgotten all his dreams
sold for an iou
and when he is reminded
he shrugs and goes for a run
and thirty minutes later,
the memory is gone
and the only dream remaining
is his paid vacation time
