Work all day, as men who know,
Wheels must turn to keep, to keep the flow,


Build on up, don't break the chain,
Sparks will fly, when the whistle blows,


Never stop the action,
Keep it up, keep it up,


Work to the rhythm,
Live to the rhythm,
Love to the rhythm,
Slave to the rhythm,


Axe to wood, in ancient time,
Man machine, power line,


Fires burn, heart beats strong,
Sing out loud, the chain gang song,


Never stop the action,
Keep it up, keep it up,


Breath to the rhythm,
Dance to the rhythm,
Work to the rhythm,
Live to the rhythm,
Love to the rhythm,
Slave to the rhythm.

    Human beings are being treated as machines
    Working on modern chain gangs of deception
    The rhythm of music both releases and binds
    The evil and good is intertwined
    The gray not easy to interpret
    Enjoy music but be aware
    The future beats of darkness
    But also light, sing, dance, breathe in love and light
