it goes in
it comes out
it looks just the same
the machine
cranks out
does not complain
blank face
can't say a thing
it's a paycheck
i don't feel anything

marginal middle
center of a crumbling edge
structure like onions
layers surrounding nothing

cog think
script talk to say
thoughts thinked
think thunk all day
I have a thought
and it's a bad one
I didn't do it yet
might though
I might still
I might do anything

    General Commentgrotus wrote a pop song! well, perhaps it isn't super-recognizable as one, but this is probably the closest to conventional radio friendliness the band got. the themes are familiar from other grotus songs -- the meaninglessness of post-industrial labor, its anesthetizing influence on those engaged in it, and, toward the end of the song, perhaps the birth of a revolutionary consciousness, something that showed up nowhere on 'brown,' their previous release -- but the wrapping is hook-laden and the structure verse-chorus-verse-bridge. perhaps there's a connection there...
