about

It's already dawning, my dear I am a mess
Another morning, a grinning ugly face
A deja vu my friend, oh yeah

What will it hold for me? I don't really wanna know
I'm just a chain link, I'm not supposed to know
Just say yes and do what you're told

You're getting up at five,
Getting out at six,
Working for seven dollars,
Eight days a week
And you're only getting by
And all you do is try
Yeah you're only getting by
And all you do is try, try

After all these decades, instead of bread and games
All you get is fastfood and phones
And there are still kings and slaves

It's the same story, told and retold
Our patience must be getting old
Just wait and watch the bomb explode

You're getting up at five,
Getting out at six,
Working for seven dollars,
Eight days a week
And you're only getting by
And all you do is try
Yeah you're only getting by
And all you do is try, try

Take my time, but you won't take my mind
Take my time, but you won't take my mind
Take my time, but you won't take my mind
Take my time
