lyrics

The new cog in your machine has already started to rust
The decay of our childhood dreams, stagnated and gathering dust
Each minute that drags itself by is another minute's money in the bank
Each minute that drags itself by is another minute that I'll never get back
The future had seemed so bright before
Now day after day you want me to do this once more (with feeling)

The years seem to stretch behind and I still haven't come all that far
I need freedom to motivate more than promotion and a company car
When I'm stuck in an endless queue, through traffic experiments, past diversion signs
While beneath my mind's paperwork lie forgotten melodies and unfinished lines
And life seems to drain from every pore
And day after day you want me to do this once more (with feeling)

I used to believe I'd have all I desired
Now each day's the same and it leaves me so tired
The stars in the night sky that had me inspired now seem dimmed
And so I can't do this once more

Sleep, work, eat, work, sleep, work, eat, work, sleep, work, eat, work, sleep, work, eat, work, sleep, work, eat, work, sleep, work, eat, work, sleep, work, eat, work, sleep, work, eat, work, sleep...

Confined within these four walls I plan out my great escape
As I cling on to this fading dream and pray I've not too long left to wait
And the world moves on through that door
And day after day you want me to do this once more

I thought independence would help set me free
Now I'm living my dreams through the things on TV
While the feelings I had for this world around me have been numbed
And so I can't do this once more
