lyrics

Don’t
Lick your wounds
Cuz your tongue is very dirty
Your lips are spewing filth and your teeth are yellow
Here’s a rag
Wipe your ass and get a job

Do the things you have to when you have to do them
And you can do the things you want when you want to do them
But I’ve got a million other things to do
Gotta go another day without getting any pay
Guess I’ll eat from the trash and let my head bash the wall

Sell yourself out
A higher price tag, better spot on the shelf

You can’t catch up
You’ll never know what it's
Like at the top
But fuck it anyway
We’ll rip it down like the catastrophe that it is
Let’s all live off severance

The collar is a leash
The future is bleak
The dollar will always define your being
At the bottom (at the bottom)
You’re the gears to the machine

You can’t catch up
You’ll never know what it's
Like at the top
But fuck it anyway
We’ll rip it down like the catastrophe that it is
Let’s all live off severance

The uniform is a prison
You’re a slave when you’re in them
Minimum wage, maximum hours
The sweat on your brow for the cultivation of powers
You can’t catch up
You’ll never know what it's
Like at the top
But fuck it anyway
We’ll rip it down like the catastrophe that it is
Let’s all live off severance
