Thrown Into A Holiday - New Lyrics

Well I got inspired at work and off of one phrase I ended up with the first draft of a some new lyrics. It shouldn't take a major effort to understand what this one is about although there are a few subtle nods to other things hidden away. I always say creativity spawns creativity and it continues to be true for me. There is still work to be done, especially when I can get someone to start on the music for it but it's not bad for a first draft if I don't say so myself.

          Thrown Into A Holiday
False feelings of utter cheer
Turned into commercial sneer
Feel like I’m being thrown into a holiday
It’s just another day
Just down the national store
Looks the same no matter where
I go searching in vain but
Question and answer remain the same
Strangled throughout by boredom
Originality fades into tedium
Keep the smile plastered on
Gotta make my appearance stun
How long can this go on
My gaze only rests upon
A better time
A better place
How long can this go on
Thousand yard stare rests upon
A better time
Out of this space
Every year it starts earlier
Every year it goes longer
To voice it is too political
Better to live and yet yearn
Plaster on a smile insincere
Make the small talk clear
My hearts does palpitations
At the thought of being shunned
I need to be the person I am
False fronts tired old scam
Bring nothing to the table
My story fades into another fable
