lyrics

There was a time in history
Your next meal was a mystery
If you were lucky you might catch a fish
But we have Amazon now
No need for brains or brawn now
Your wish list to your door in just one click

Pointless productivity
I sit behind a screen
My fingers span the inches
In a blaze of inactivity
Captivity
For hours every day
I dare to call it work

Relentless innovation
Requires concentration
To thrive in this knowledge economy
My digital creations
Have no physical manifestation
I deal in intellectual property

Our avatars
In silhouette
Addicted to
The internet
We type and type
But never sweat

Our bellies stuffed
Perpetually
Defining sloth
And gluttony
We die too soon
But live like kings

For now let's just enjoy it
No reason to avoid it
Who needs an extra gear to coast downhill?
Succumb, my couch potato
Adopt my humble credo
And watch the world revolve while we sit still

Pointless productivity
I sit behind a screen
My fingers span the inches
In a blaze of inactivity
Creativity
I exercise my mind
And laugh to call it work.
