lyrics

Anymore
I ignore
Anything seven-oh-four

Same thing goes
For nine-eight-ohs
The whole state, I suppose

Every hour
On the hour
Every day without fail

I see the number on the cell phone and I let it go to voicemail
What’s the point of picking up to tell a robot nothing’s changed?
Four times a day from Charlotte, you think by now they’d know
I still won’t answer ‘cuz the funds are far too low
North Carolina’s calling in the debt I owe

Credit’s wrecked
Last I checked
And they know this I suspect

On the line
One more fine
I’m broke so I resign

Every call
Southern drawl
Every day the same tale

I see the number on the cell phone and I let it go to voicemail
What’s the point of picking up to tell a robot nothing’s changed?
Four times a day from Charlotte, you think by now they’d know
I still won’t answer ‘cuz the funds are far too low
North Carolina’s calling in the debt I owe

I’m not picking up
Still don’t have enough
There’s nothing I can say
There’s nothing I can pay

I’m not picking up
Still don't have enough
There’s nothing I can say
There’s nothing I can pay

I see the number on the cell phone and I let it go to voicemail
What’s the point of picking up to tell a robot nothing’s changed?
Four times a day from Charlotte, you think by now they’d know
I still won’t answer ‘cuz the funds are far too low
North Carolina’s calling in the debt I owe

Four times a day from Charlotte, you think by now they’d know
North Carolina’s calling in the debt I owe
