lyrics

When I drag my ass out of bed every day...
I look in the mirror and I have to say
a daily affirmation of my own validity
the gold-star banana stickers nullified my insecurity

Life according to plan was for everyone else
necessity and obligation sure put the dreams up on a shelf

so I trip out the door alone - keep it up for 50 years chase the invisible throne!

...and this is your life and its ending by the minute there's no I in team,
but we're in it to win it
I used to look up to people just like me, blue-collared sheep victims to corporate duplicity.

Stumble into work, and Im always 5 minutes late...
big heaping helping of shit to do are always piled up on my plate

...and the vultures in suits are roaming the halls looking for dead meat
-so I try to keep myself looking busy in a comfortable adjusted padded seat

I blend into the background and wait for holidays
so I stay just productive enough to keep them at bay

sneak out the door again at a quarter till 5,
the sterile worker bee struggles to escape he hive!

...and this is your life and its ending by the minute there's no I in team,
but we're in it to win it
I used to look up to people just like me, blue-collared sheep victims to corporate duplicity.

(break down)
Drink in all the feckless corporate platitudes
till one day he snaps and becomes of those dudes
thats struts out to the middle of the bridge, pours the gas and turns
light a match baby, we'll laugh while it burns

Its been like this for years on end
Zombies of the Corpocalypse receives their dividend
machines in full production, nevermind what it all costs
...as long as we make a profit from everyone else's loss.

TIME TO STOP BITCHING AND TAKE MATTERS INTO YOUR OWN HANDS
SNATCH BACK YOUR SOUL BEFORE YOU MELT INTO THE SAND
I KNOW WHAT IM GONNA DO NOW, AND I KNOW ITS GONNA BE HUGE
___TIME TO DRAW THE PLANS TO MY EXIT SUBTERFUGE___

...and this is your life and its ending by the minute there's no I in team,
but we're in it to win it
I used to look up to people just like me, blue-collared sheep victims to corporate duplicity.

this is your life and its ending by the minute there's no I in team,
but we're in it to win it
Now I look up to people just like me, black-sheep heretic to corporate entropy.
