lyrics

What I want
What I need
Spend my time, feed your greed
Life of hell
On the dole
Working man's got no soul

People always tell me, go out and get a job
But I'd rather sit around acting like a slob
You gotta play your part in the gig economy
You gotta earn your place in this society
Working in an office or digging up a ditch
Spending all my time just to make some fucker rich
Spend my life in a filthy factory
Until they got no use for me

When they've got no use for me
I'll be thrown away

The way it works is simple, your labour makes them fat
For every fat boss bastard there's thousands on the rack
They own the production but property is theft
You've been shafted by the right wing and deserted by the left
I don't want to spend the best years of my life
Making ends meet by picking up their shite
They'll drain me of all my energy
Until they've got no use for me

When they've got no use for me
I'll be thrown away

Working in an office or digging up a ditch
Work all day just to make some fucker rich
Spend my life in a filthy factory
Until they got no use for me

When they've got no use for me
I'll be thrown away
