Invincible (Pallas)

The anchor man is calling, he's dragging me awake He feeds me news, the worldwide blues, the moves our leaders make Sickly smiles on sofas preach "Let them eat fruit, not cake" A twentyfirst century nanny-land nags us through a new day Panicked, packed and running, make sure that we're not late We're herded in like cattle to the slaughter through the workhouse gate Driven by our masters we're shackled to the interest rate You must exceed your target, human resourse 51698 It's my life and you can't have it You trouble making shit, we've come to tear your palace down How dare you think, get back in line We need your fat and flesh to feed our big machine Live work and die, there's a good boy Don't smoke, don't drink, don't eat, don't think,work hard, don't slack, pay tax Don't spend, don't stray, don't bend, don't pray, don't cry, don't die Don't feel, don't try, no fun, no time, don't sleep, don't stop, work till you drop Don't love, don't live, we don't forgive, don't fight the machine, you won't survive Don't stop, don't think, don't shake your waking sleep Don't hope, don't dream, don't dare to fight the machine I remember those afternoons in bed, we laughed and loved and life stretched out ahead And as the day melts into night, we'd plan a course to live our lives But where did the time go? It drained away like the sand Whatever happened to our dreams, they slipped through our hands The grinding wheels keep churning, tearing souls apart Devouring dreams and lovers schemes Free thinkers, men of art We are all just numbers A target market, marked But we can rise against the tide The fish must kill the shark It's my life and you can't have it I will not break, I will not fall I will not compromise for anyone at all This is my life, you can't take Knock me down, but I won't break I'm invincible, I'm invincible Break my will, steal my pride As long as you are by my side I am invincible, I am invincible
