lyrics

I awake before sun comes up
I see the last of my dreams
Shake them off with a morning smoke
No one is talking on the bus
As the sun breaks through
A Monday morning

Who is manning these machines
Who is running this show
I wish I could shake their hands
That I am keeping free
From this old work
Free from toiling here

Just another day in the factory working
Another day building pieces of something
When I die put my ashes out back
And the weeds will grow
Above the smokestack breath
Above the dirty water
I saw the last of the light
Above the Speed River, I
Walked along the powerlines
Out of touch
Out of time

When I die I’ll be down there
Working in a factory
Working as a factory worker
I don’t see the light of the day
I walk past machines
Bigger than the house where I live
I don’t feel anything
Through dirty windows I watch

Night shift comes too quick
To take me
Through the streets
Passed the burnt out buildings
Late at night still operating
The sounds of thunderous machinery
I don’t care the nights the same
Sit in here, always waiting

But soon
I can feel the dawn
Is breaking up the night
Smoke on the river rising
