lyrics

I spend my mornings tangled up in orange wire
Then pass the afternoons doing my best to recover

Light on, light off
Another early morning
Sign on, sign off
Another weekend lost
Switch on, switch off
Another floor is spotless
But to what end, and at what cost?

And when I come back tomorrow
It'll be as if I did nothing at all today
I'll have to do it all again
And when I come back the next day
It'll be the same as it was the day before
And it'll make me wonder
If all this is worth getting tangled up in orange for

I abuse my body just to bring home pocket change
Squander my earnings in a bid to keep myself sane

Plug in, plug out
Machine's hypnotic whirring
Tune in, tune out
Monotony distilled
All in, all out
My life is not my own now
Surrendered to my nature's will

And when I come back tomorrow
It'll be as if I did nothing at all today
I'll have to do it all again
And when I come back the next day
It'll be the same as it was the day before
And it'll make me wonder
If all this is worth getting tangled up in orange for

There is nothing
Self-affirming
In clearing up your shit...
