"...WHOLE COMPANY'S COUNTIN' ON YA"

"How much more can I take?"
My only thought as I wake
A new sunrise to blind me
Guts burn and churn like the sea
Days bleed into weeks
Time clock's made a ghost outta me

I don't wanna whine
And it ain't about the fucking money
Its just a waste of my time
If I don't get nothing from it

You can pay me to work until I bleed
But you can't change this undeniable need
To do what I love, to be what I wanted to be

"No more sweet dreams" the alarm clock screams
And pushed me onto unwilling feet
I fight my way through one more day
Until I'm back in bed and do it all over again

In the end what do I get?
A blank stare and a paycheck

We are not what we do
We are not what they put us through
