Lyrics for Boiled Frogs by Alexisonfire:

Verse 1: George Pettit
A man sits at his desk
One year from retirement
And he's up for review
Not quite sure what to do
Each passing year
The workload grows

Pre-Chorus: Dallas Green & George Pettit
I'm always wishing, I'm always wishing too late
For things to go my way, it always ends up the same
Count your blessings
I must be missing, I must be missing the point
Your signal fades away and all I'm left with is noise
Count your blessings on one hand

Chorus: Dallas Green
So wait up
I'm not sleeping alone again tonight
There's so much to dream about
There must be more to my life

Verse 2: George Pettit
Poor little tin man
Still swinging his axe
Even though his joints
Are clogged with rust

Pre-Chorus: Wade MacNeil & George Pettit
My youth is slipping, my youth is slipping away
Safe in monotony (so safe!) day after day
Count your blessings
My youth is slipping, my youth is slipping away
Cold wind blows off the lake and I know for sure that it's too late
Count your blessings on one hand

Chorus: Dallas Green
So wait up
I'm not sleeping alone again tonight
There's so much to dream about
There must be more to my life

Bridge: George Pettit
Can't help but feel betrayed
Punch the clock every single day
There's no loyalty, and no remorse
Youth stole for a pension cheque
And it makes him fucking sick
He's heating up, he can't say no

Chorus: Dallas Green
So wait up
I'm not sleeping alone again tonight
There's so much to dream about
There must be more to my life

Chorus: Dallas Green
So wait up
I'm not sleeping alone again tonight
Between the light and shallow waves
Is where I'm going to die

Outro: Dallas Green
Wait up for me
Wait up for me
Wait up for me

The titles compares a situation where George’s dad’s boss tried to cheat him out of a pension, to the popular theory that frogs, if placed in a pot of water and have the temperature slowly raised, will not notice that they are being cooked.
