about

This is a song for the international working class. Its for everyone waking up and dragging themselves into work, to a job they may hate because they've got bills to pay. We're all in the same fight, the fight for the better life in a system built on the backs of the working class.

lyrics

He leaves me in the morning
To catch an early ride
He fades into the sunrise
On the distant riverside
Where parts are made
And jobs don't pay
Enough to stay alive
But we'll survive
He says

I'm headin' to the factory
To pay my dues in sweat
Spend my time on an assembly line
Just to even out my debt
And I tell you babe
Every day I wake
I'm dreaming my escape
To the better life
He says

Gotta get up
Got bills to pay
I'll be working overtime
Working for that bottom line
Gotta get up
Gotta earn that wage
If this job don't kill me first
Then watch my body take the worst
Of the factory life

The sparks they fly
The metal it shines
I'm running out of time
As I close my eyes
Wake up too early
It's still dark outside
The monotonous vice
Of every day life

Gotta get up
Got bills to pay
I'll be working overtime
Working for that bottom line
Gotta get up
Gotta earn that wage
If this job don't kill me first
Then watch my body take the worst
Of the factory life

It may be easier to sit at home
To bitch and moan
Bout the life I chose
But I can't just sit back
Collect some cheque
I'll work hard for it
For this...

Gotta get up
Got bills to pay
I'll be working overtime
Working for that bottom line
Gotta get up
Gotta earn that wage
If this job don't kill me first
Then watch my body take the worst
Of the factory life
