lyrics

Work on my daughter.
Work on my son.
Work on like your father
Until the day is done.

Work until you can't.
Work until you bleed.
Work until you won't.
All for the machine

And you ask yourself.
Am I free?

Think of the money.
The one that buys your time.
Think of the money.
You can't take with you, when you die.

And you ask yourself, am I free?

Do you work 9 to 5?
Do you feel alive?
Is it worth all your time?
Do you dream of days gone by?
Do you have any pride?
Do you feel any life?

And you ask yourself, am I free?
