lyrics

sweeping up, stacking cans
I'm a mack with the pallet jack
piss in a cup just to break my back
yep, I'm a working man

should of studied harder
should of learned some code
but I took a different road
now I got no skills nobody needs
so it seems so I'm told

now I'm doing this and that on my knees
I aint in no cage, aint exactly free

show up on time I don't complain
that aint how I was trained
do as I'm told, know my place
that's just how I was raised

what do I get for my loyalty
just enough to get by, not enough to leave

get on your hustle, hold on tight
probably gonna get worse before it gets alright

sweeping up, stacking cans
I'm a mack with the pallet jack
piss in a cup just to break my back
yep, I'm a working man

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
