Got yelled at work
Cause my apron was covered with food
If I was paid better
My clothing would look like it should
My boss doesn’t care
He said I better get myself clean
And he needs him money
To beat off to his magazines,

They make me wear a hat
They don’t like my hair
I tuck in my shirt, I smile
And pretend that I care
Some days I get so angry
I just wanna rip off those pants
Take a piss on the walls
And show how far
Their dream has advanced

That’s right – we don’t need you
Alright– you’re erasable
Alright – you could do better
Don’t you know you’re replaceable?

My boss had the nerve to ask my friend
When he last cut his hair
I wanted to ask “do you finger your wife”
But I did not dare
We are all targets of the suit and tie machine
If I had dollar bills tattooed on my thighs
Their head would be stuck in between

Repeat Chorus

So I’ll make them a sandwich
But I won’t put my dreams on hold
Don’t make me feel inhuman
Because your fries were cold
Because I am a human and goddamit I feel
There’s more to my existence
Than your value meal.

Repeat Chorus


from Below The Velvet, released February 14, 1996
