lyrics

GET A JOB
By John Hovorka

For maximum convenience
And total control
Still have a long way to go
To the victor
Goes the schmo
Like a bitter pill
the voice gets shrill
the voice gets shrill
the voice gets shrill

Do not talk to these silent walls
expensive to maintain
with sensors and microphones
and sheets of aluminum
propped up on the barren plain

Wherever they go
forced march
across the amazon valley
forced march
and the apple-dappled plateau
oh oh

Oh revolt
don’t bother me
oh revolt
don’t bother me
I'm am so sick of hearing about them
Get a job yeah
Get a job yeah
Call and response like on an automated hotline
Call and response like busted neurons

For maximum convenience
And total control
Still have a long way to go
To the victor goes the schmo

Get rid of workers / Oh no
Ger rid of workers / Oh no
Get rid of workers / Oh no
Don’t!
