lyrics

Deal me in
Let's play this game
I'll play it again
Because you pay me by the hour

I'll sacrifice time
Sell you my mind
I'll rent you my dreams
If it's on your dime
I'll give up happiness
To feed your machine

I am only a man
At the end of the day
And I have to survive
I have to get paid
At the wave of your hand
I'll do terrible things
Technology crimes
Just to survive

I'm chasing after dreams
Dreams that aren't mine
While telling myself
I've run out of time
To follow my own
To keep them alive
This deception...

For eight more hours you can be my master
I will lay down all my rights
I will be yours alone from morning until night
When you're smiling at your empire
And I'm struggling to survive
How can you bear to look yourself in the eye

I walk through your door
Looking for money
You exploit my need to survive
Every day I slave away
And sacrifice my life

At the edge of stagnation
Lost on this route
This is my life
And it's running out
Day after day
Year after year
When does it end?
