"Praying to the Beat" as written by and Craig John Baxter....
I wake each day and I go tick-tock
I spend my life trying to beat the clock
I jump down turn around I gotta move
Get up and atom, I ain't got no time
To lose
I grab my clothes 'cause I can't be late
A shot of coffee to stimulate
I look around me and what do I see
We are all moving like machinery

Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Yeah, yeah

By bus and train they all march to work
In their cars they go beep beep beep
Berserk
The city people all marching in time
Just like tin soldiers they're all in line
The secretaries with their tick-tack typing
They're hypnotized by their stereo typing
They keep it moving all day long
The time and motion construction –
Suction song

Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Yeah

Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Praying, praying, praying to the beat,
Praying to the beat
Yeah, yeah

    General CommentI love this band sooo much!! I want to add more lyrics by them, but its so hard because they are not too famouse so i have to get the words by ear (hard!) They are also kind of hard to find, their CD, "The Politics of Dancing," only comes in cassette and record...I think this song is about how people need music to break them out of their mechanical lifestyle.
