Wage Slave

Wage Slave

Reduced to the lowest end
scrapping by for crumbs
work yourself to the bone
to poverty you

succumb

to the -

endless drive for
more bullshit
can you see
it's nothingness?
endless drive to survive
your success is all a lie

Work to wage
work to live
work to rage
live to give

to the -

endless drive for
more plastic
can you see
it's just a fix?
endless drive to survive
scraping by until you die

Work to live
Work for wage
all you give
stand and rage!

No more - starvation
No more - desperation
Face our persistence

Fuck their false system
Face our persistence

They don't give a fuck about you!
They don't give a fuck about you!
They don't give a fuck about you!

While in my opinion this could have been written better, I completely agree with the general gist of this lyric. It's straightforward, angry and understandable. I like.

Not necessarily.

It's been done before. It's being done right now. It will, in all likelyhood be done over and over again. However - I find it worth contemplating, who is the one that should be blamed for it.
Nothing special about the lyrics, but if you really mean it, I guess it says everything that needs to be said.

"Nothingness" is gaining ranks with "abyss" and "decay" for me. Just personally getting on my nerves mostly. No biggie.

I do think it could have been worded a bit better in a few places, but yeah, the mood came across very well. Reads like a screamer to me.
