Dead Lines

Hectic noisy bustle
Shady corporate hustle
Climbing up the rancid greasy pole
Everything is vital
Policy recital
Late night meetings
Working lunch to go

Working with aggression
To better your profession
Sell yourself to make it to the top
Go the extra mile
With conscientious smile
As they look for better ways to rape your crop

Pushing hard to work towards the dead lines
Follow promises of future good times
Pushing hard to work towards the dead lines
Follow promises of future good times

Stop this ship from sinking
Where’s your blue sky thinking?
Flying that kite high outside the box
Maximising resource
Whilst streamlining the workforce
Touching base before you’re touching cloth

Pushing hard to work towards the good times
Follow promises of future dead lines
Pushing hard to work towards the good times
Swallow promises of future dead lines

Closing ranks to talk about
The workers they could do without
To cream a bit more for themselves
To scheme a bit more for themselves
They say that it’s competitive
They say that it’s all relative
And if we put in that bit more
They’ll see us right on the top floor

Pushing hard to work towards the good times
Follow promises of future dead lines
Pushing hard to work towards the good times
Swallow promises of future dead lines

Working to save face
In the market place
Brainstorming the task of who to blame
Self-imposing penance
Failing work life balance
Buying into ways to beat the shame

Pushing hard to work towards the good times
Follow promises of future dead lines
Pushing hard to work towards the good times
Swallow promises of future dead lines
