From the 2017 album GENERATION AUTOMATION

lyrics

Meltdown

Trying to make it on your own
Leaving-home for the first time
Heading out to find your dream
But your life-is-already-far behind

Societies system laid-out-for-you
Your freedoms fake and will come with a price
The trap is set and soon you will find
A life already far behind

A working class wage
Will keep you in line
Your net worth to society
Is to shut up and do as you’re told

Stripped humanity
Stripped it to the very core
Stole its ambition
And kicked love out the fucking door

A working class wage
Is what you were designed for?
It’s your calling in life
To just die

Crossed the stage diploma in hand
You quickly fell down the rabbit hole
Endless jobs got-you-nowhere yet that’s all you could have-hoped-for

A lifestyle obsession
For an entire wage-slave generation
forever working jobs you hate
through many lies they will control your fate

A working class wage
Is all that was waiting for you
You spent your life watching every game
fucking glued to the tube

A working class wage
with closed eyes you took it all in
An education system shaped you
what to think, how to look and what to do

A working class wage
The system took advantage of you
It’s your calling in life
To just die

And you will never live

I say never be complete,
This is your life and it's ending
one minute at a time
While we sleep the planets bleeding

Time to wake up and take notice
Time to grow up and evolve,
Cast your fear to the side
let the chips fall where they may

A working class wage
Will keep you in line
Just shut up and do as you’re told

A working class wage
A middle class economy
Struggling your whole life
Is the only way it could be

Insane humanity
Never learning how to live
Greed and profits at the core
Ethics tossed out the fucking door

A working class wage
Is what you were designed for?
It’s your calling in life
To just die
