What do you work for? Fat pockets and a cozy life for yourRING-A-LING-A-LINGexcuse me dear, you know I love you, but i gotta take this
in the other room
I do it for us, but really for them
In the other room
it never stops

"The cool breeze in your hair makes it dance, and sun freckles your face, and I remember why I fell in love with you..."
"the simple life..."
"I wish it would never end!"
Then it's back to the office, wear the yoke for the bosses!

Phosphor burns the back of my retinas
Substance, coax my synapse to fire
Tar-stained fingers blur their patterns
at the sound of Pavlovian bells

Serviced like a car
check my levels, fill my head with
dreams of other lives
I won't see that I am not the master of my time

What do you work for? Live for? Die for? Work for? Try for?
Fall of the bow, and you'll regret weighing down your pockets
What do you work for? Live for? Die for? Work for? Try for?
If not to be the master of your time?

Danger! Danger!
Twenty-four-seven back-to-back, you're gunna get a heart attack!
Danger! Danger!
Don't run so fast on the pavement, you'll only wear out your sole.
Danger! Danger!
I'm tellin' you man, it never stops.
