Herded like the cattle, we are compromised
Submitting to the same routine
Immersed in desperation 'cause money is freedom
The cycle must be broken it must be spoken
Look at me I've got a promotion, stressful but the pay makes it all right
Wage slave? No I call it devotion, I deserve to be where I am right now
Why question integrity?
Life's not meant to be easy
What does it mean to be alive?
Is this all that there is?
We can't sit back and just survive
We're meant for more than this
I hate this! Is there a better way?
Look at me I've got a vacation, to get away from the job I truly hate
Evasion? No! Motivation, reassuring me I'm doing okay
Question my integrity?
I've earned everything around me
