When I was young I was naive
I said I’d always be young and free
But as age crept up on me
I needed more of that sweet green
I broke down and got a job
Gave into the thought
That I was meant to be
Another piece of the machine

So shave your face and cut your hair
Sit your ass down in that chair
Time to lose those wide eyed dreams
And give in to the machine

Give in to the machine

There’s no reason to cause a stink
When you embrace group think
Give into your inner greed
Well be all you need
When money is your religion
You climb the corporate
Ladder to heaven
Give into what they expect of you
And you’ll become the perfect tool

We got to break the machine!
I’ve got to break free
From the machine
Break the machine!
