industrial emancipation

Updated on August 5, 2011

industrial emancipation

these walls

these machines

this endless, tiresome burden

these are his machines

his tools

his way

--let him fight alone

women have their own battle


the drumming

the beating

of machines

the screaming

"Did I want this freedom?"

the crap they feed us


this iron cage

torturous and mad

the walls are bleeding

and the machines are beating

"Did I want this freedom?"


the drumming

the beating

of machines

the screaming

"Did I want this freedom?"


walls moving in motion

dizzing and confusing

the machines are eating

my beating heart

"Did I want this freedom?"


the drumming

the beating

of machines

the screaming

"Did I want this freedom?"


the drumming

the beating

of machines

the screaming

"Did I want this freedom?"

the crap they feed us
