"Rhythm And Blues" as written by and Roger Riley Troy Seals....
I can't pretend that this is working well.
If you couldn't really tell,
this has become my perfect hell -
at least from where I'm seeing things.
At least from where I'm seeing things,
the heartache that my toil brings
is not worth what I'm getting paid to make
someone above me rich.

I can't pretend that this is working right.
If you're all alone tonight,
I sure could use another fight,
at least from where I'm seeing things.

Oh, sad oh sad and holy glow,
to know the desperate seeds you've sown again.

    General CommentI love the recurring theme of "sad and holy glow" in this album. To me, this whole album paints a picture in which the corporations are the rulers of society, and how we're all slaves to them. The credit issue in "sad and holy glow" and this "not worth what I'm getting paid to make someone above me rich". The sad and holy glow idea, to me, portrays images of the oppressed people in society; oppressed by their minimum wage jobs, or debt, or being a slave to society. Don't forget the "forty hour increments", ie. the typical workweek that can murder you, and when they murder you they'll "fill your chair, forgetting of your sitting there", these people are tools, used by the companies, they don't care about you and will replace you without a thought.

    And of course, the title of the album: "You Should Be Living". It could relate in any number of ways. Hey! I just thought this all up just now, it all makes sense now!
