Modern Life Is War – Night Shift At The Potato Factory lyrics

Punching that clock.
Finding solace in your hidden thoughts.
Taking orders from fucking fools.
Everything about it grinds down on you.
Just do what you gotta do to get where you wanna go.
Paychecks while you scheme.
Pledge no loyalty to anything but your dreams.

Stuck in a rut.
They'll give you just enough to keep your mouth shut.
Waste of talent. Daily degradation.
You better get moving kid, case time's a wastin'.
You got the power... But only if you know you do.
The path is dim and twisted but there's nothing stopping you.

Too many love songs.
Too many unanswered prayers.
Nobody is gonna save you cause nobody cares.
The years are raining down.
You gotta find your own way out.
