about

This one is a folky tune, the only song to include some harmonica. It's about working long hours and the sacrifice you make to do it and earn a wage. It might be good financially, but if you spend all of your time at work - you neglect other areas of your life and "put your life on The Shelf".... Finding that balance between work and life is a dilemma we each have to solve for ourselves. It's played on a steel string acoustic guitar in an open G tuning and the sound of the drums is actually brushes on cardboard!

lyrics

4. The Shelf - (Words and Music Ben Wintle)

Step off the edge and you will fly, that shit on TV makes me want to cry
The video shop looks like a sty, where people fill their face with cheap American Pie
Now I don’t wanna’ go to work, I don’t wanna go to school
I’m not gonna’ live my life by someone else’s Golden Rule
You’ve got to solve it for yourself
Spend all your time makin’ money, you put your life on the shelf

The CEO says: “I’m a consumer! So watch me consume!”
His mother says: “Son! What are you doing? Get back into your room!”
Now there’s a prince and there’s a pauper, in the same robber’s roost,
Watching movies from their childhood, cause it gives them both a boost!
You’ve got to solve it for yourself
Spend all your time makin’ money, you put your life on the shelf

The Taliban called the Helpdesk, but they put his call on hold
He hadn’t heard of Tom Cruise, so they left him in the cold!
All the great things we attempted, all the great things that we saw
We packed the jobs in, said “Goodbye!”, then we walked out the door
You’ve got to solve it for yourself
Spend all your time makin’ money, you put your life on the shelf

Spend all your time makin’ money – Get there on time!
Spend all your time makin’ money – Flexitime!
Spend all your time makin’ money – OVERTIME!
Spend all your time makin’ money, you put your life on the shelf!
