The First Monthly Lyrics Challenge

Lyrics JokeOk, so I'm starting a new feature here, which will be the Monthly Lyrics

Challenge. This will be a list of 10 random song lyrics tidbits (as long or as short as I deem necessary), and we'll see who can name the artist and song. In some cases, there may be multiple answers (because, yes, songs are covered), and I'll accept any of them. The first first person to name the artists and songs that match up with the lyrics, or the person with the most correct answers by the end of the month, will be featured in a new right-column box (along with a link to their blog or website, when appropriate).

Since my tastes are pretty eclectic, these could be from pretty much anywhere. I'll do my best to balance well-known songs with obscure ones though…

So, without further ado, here are this month's lyrics (with a spin towards our nation's current economic status):

1. I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
2. Still I try to make it work out for the best
and I know I've gotta clean up all this mess
if I knew when I started where this all would end
I'd prolly do it all over again
3. Go to a cash machine
To get a ticket home
Message on the screen
Says don't make plans, you're broke
4. savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park
5. But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter…
6. It falls apart from the very start,
It falls apart seems like everything I touch,
Falls apart everything around me
7. Everybody's looking for something
8. To never worry 'bout your future, never asking why?
9. But they won't even admit that they were the one to blame
10. See the pig dressed in his finest fine

Post your answers in the comments below. Good luck everyone!
