"The Workers Sing a Song of Mass Production" as written by and Matthew Good....
He snuck into the city
The night it had come early
She always used to say
Life's a dirty business
So why not do it while

The world's in bed
The world's in bed
The world's in bed
The world's in bed

And there's a fake
Part of me that comes off
So you can read
I was made
By the Taiwanese in Taiwan
But they don't like that much cause it's called Formosa

He snuck into the city
The dawn it had come early
She always used to say
Life's a dirty business

So just be a prick and do it while
The world's awake
The world's awake

And there's a fake
Part of me that comes off
So you can read
I was made

By the Taiwanese in Taiwan
But they don't like that
Like that, like that, like that,
Like that, like that, like that, like that
Well, they don't like that much cause it's called Formosa

    General CommentI think this song shows, in a microcosm, the only two ways of living life: by night or by day. Day and night may both just be metaphors for good and bad, social or anti-social, or maybe even lover or hater of the 21st century. I would choose to say though that if you did not liek the way the world is then it would not be any better at night than it would be during the day. Maybe.
