Employment law is very complex
When you employ a minefield of wrecks
They come in late, they come in when they're rough
They top themselves when the going gets tough

If only, hey, there was some way to legislate and legally protect us from the downtime that's occurred.

So if you could just keep a lid on your despair
And then sign here - you're ready to go!
Contractually you're bound by the company laws
So get to work - enjoy your day!

I signed myself and never looked back
All those dark thoughts were gone in a flash!
It stops you feeling ever so grand
It's not despair, it's the hope I can't stand

Now that's life - still horrifying but (for me) contractually now fine. I have no mouth and I must scream.

So if you could just keep a lid on your despair
And then sign here - you're ready to go!
Contractually you're bound by the company laws
So get to work - enjoy your day!
I am in hell but at least - for now - I'm still alive
And company stock continues to rise
The only thing truly mine has been taken away
So get to work - enjoy your day!

Care about everything or care about nothing
But anything in between is pointless and insulting.

We know you care and you show it by how much you cry, until it impacts your leisure time.
You can ignore the polished brutality
reflected in your telephone screen.
I have a voice but I cannot scream any more,
because if I start then I'll never stop.
My consciousness is not mine to own anymore.
It's soldered to your TV set.
