Stop the bus, I wanna be lonely
When seconds pass slowly and years go flying by
You gotta stop the bus and get off here
Enough's enough and I'm leaving this factory

All she wants is food on the table
And I won't be able to bring it home
And all I want, come on
'Cause all I need, yeah is free, 'cause I'm a factory

Did mother nature tell you
"Boy, you come and go as you please"
That's what she said to me
But big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery

Woah, woah
Woah, woah

Millionaires and mill rats live side by side
Messed up my brother's mind who's far from earth
And tell me what's he worth?
The same as you, the same as me in this factory

Did mother nature tell you
"Boy, you come and go as you please"
That's what she said to me
But big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery

Woah, woah
Woah, woah

It's four in the morning
Mother don't know that I'm going far away
She's whispering to the moon, I hope you don't
Join you soon

Baby boss climbs up on his soapbox
Great Caesar's ghost knows what's best for me
Stop the bus

Did mother nature tell you
"Boy, you come and go as you please"
That's what she said to me
But big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery

Big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson cannery

Big brother had the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery
