It's a crying shame what some eyes must see
What I thought was just T.V.
Took a sharp turn toward reality
Exposing me
To the inhumanity that so many live with each day
We represent freedom yet we harbor these slaves

Run down and withered inside
Pounding oneself to the ground under flourescent light
Sixty-plus hours per week for just pennies to survive
(brand name slave)

Low operation and labor costs, send the work overseas
Where governments seem to fold giving rise to atrocity
Rules and regulations need not apply
We'll squeeze the life out of already lifeless souls
Work them for what little they're worth mistake greed for pride

What you get at some select stores may just be a product of immorality,
Just some food for thought

Livealbe wage divided by a few cents a day doesn't even out
Time to reinvent the standards of humanity

Run down and withered inside
Pounding oneself to the ground under flourescent light
Sixty-plus hours per week for just pennies to survive
(brand name slave)

Third world nations, now our homeland, an unpleasant surprise
You'd have to see it with your own eyes, this is true life

And I've seen all that I care to see, time for a change, walk the plank
Fall into history drown in the sea of ignominy

Run down and withered inside
Pounding oneself to the ground under flourescent light
Sixty-plus hours per week for just pennies to survive
(brand name slave)
