"Slave To The Grind" as written by and David Michael Sabo Sebastian Philip Bierk....
You got me forced to crack my lids in two
I'm still stuck inside the rubber room
I gotta punch the clock that leads the blind
I'm just another gear in the assembly line-oh no

The noose gets tighter around my throat
But I ain't at the end of my rope

'Cause I won't be the one left behind
Can't be king of the world if you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can't be king of the world if you're slave to the grind
Get it?

A routine injection, a lethal dose
But my day in the sun ain't even close
There's no need to waste your prayers on me
You better mark my words 'cause I'm history, yes indeed

You might beg for mercy to get by
But I'd rather tear this thorn from my side

'Cause I won't be the one left behind
Can't be king of the world if you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can't be king of the world if you're slave to the grind

They swallowed their daggers by turning their trick
They tore my intentions apart brick by brick
I'm sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

They swallowed their daggers by turning their trick
They tore my intentions apart brick by brick
I'm sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

I won't be the one left behind
Can't be king of the world if you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can't be king of the world if you're slave to the grind

I said slave to the grind
Slave to the grind, slave to the grind

    General Commentit's about how life sucks and everyone's corrupt and racist and the people in power put their beliefs and preferences over what most need and you can't do a damn thing about it because they think you're inferior even though you're not but it doesn't matter because they have power, they fucking like it, and they don't want you to have it so you don't because they do.

    General CommentI think this is about not running in the rat race of moder life and letting it take control of you. You've got to do your own thing, be free and happy so you're not tied down and a slave to the modern capitalistic society - unless that makes you happy I suppose.

    General CommentWe're all slaves to the freakin' grind- we have to live by the timelines and expectations of those around us. This song is about breaking away from that and living your own life- something we can all take to heart.

    General Commenti remember when i was at my last job this girl said
    'so its back to the grind'
    i didn't understand her.
    but basically working for a major corporation or under anyone your in the grind, its chewing you up and eating you and draining every life.
    this song means the only way your gonna get ahead of them is blow em or show em up.
