about

@elesimo: I got randomly paired with @jayjay for round 4 of the random collaboration challenge (fawm.org/forums/topic/12349/). They sent me an amazing lyric that immediately inspired me. I was also helped by @zecoop's drums in this one!

lyrics

Slave to the Machine
Picking our bones clean
We barely survive
The one percent thrive

Slave to the Machine
Picking our bones clean
We barely survive
The one percent thrive

What happens when we stop?

What happens when we stop?
What happens when we stop?
When we just have had enough
What happens when we stop?

Slave to the Machine
Picking our bones clean
The Killswitch is dead
Keep working they said

Slave to the Machine
Picking our bones clean
The Killswitch is dead
Keep working they said

What happens when we stop?
What happens when we stop?

What happens when we stop?
What happens when we stop?
When we just have had enough
What happens when we stop?

Slave to the Machine
Picking our bones clean
What’s in it for us
Only their lip service

Slave to the Machine
Picking our bones clean
Tell me what’s in it for us
Only their lip service

What happens when we stop?
What happens when we stop?
When we just have had enough
What happens when we stop?

Slave to the Machine
Picking our bones clean
Yet we all comply
Afraid not to satisfy

What happens when we stop?
Let’s stop
