Lyrics


I feel like I'm only half awake

like walking in a maze with a goal that's never clear

dreaming of a better life than this

but today's another day

it's a tune that's on repeat


hey now!!!!!

no time for useless reveries

I can't give up right now

or my life will turn to dust!

luckily we have all these bits and bobs

to keep us pacified

ignorant to what is wrong


no more slacking!

I'm on the job!

yes I know that everyone has to play their part

we're all told that work will give us life

this is the price of freedom. indeed

we've got our sole duty

for the greater good

we keep the wheels turning round

come on!

rev the engine of this beast!

dream eating machine


nurturing the youngest of us all

they'll never see it coming

the things we have in store

just enjoy the good moments while you can

today might be the day

you'll be made to play your part

everyone can be made to fit a mold

it's a matter of time

even diamonds can be crushed


hey! this isn't the thing I had in mind

darling, what did you think?

that the world was made for you?


no more slacking

I'm on the job

yes I know that everyone has to play their part

we're all told that work will give us life

this is the price of freedom. indeed

we've got our sole duty

for the greater good

we keep the wheels turning round

come one! rev the engine of this beast!

dream eating machine


here we are

in the end

don't look back it's too late to turn

if we think of all we have lost

can we really say we're alright?

"progress" seems to be the thing we all adore

hurry, pick up the pace

or you will get left behind

look sharp!

don't let them see you're at wit's end

you're a grown up

so shoulder the burdens of this life!


no more slacking!

I'm on the job

yes I know that everyone has to play their part

we're all told that work will give us life

this is the price of freedom. indeed

we've got our sole duty

for the greater good

we keep the wheels turning round

come on! rev the engine of this beast!
