Stan Ridgway - The Overlords






Well, I been breakin' rocks up on coolie #3
I know it's been forever
Thought you'd never hear from me
The weather up here is rotten
Rainin' granite all the time
And both moons are glowin' purple
And there is no sun to shine
I been diggin' deep down in a tunnel
That goes twenty miles down
And I know my life is cheap
When I hear that rumblin' sound

(Chorus):
Oh the overlords
Got me workin' overtime
Oh the overlords
They never make it rhyme

And there is something in the air
That is burnin' in my throat
A big black cloud is passin'
Droppin' acid on my coat
The overlords got me workin' overtime

(Chorus)

It's been ten years and a day
After world war nine
They pushed us to make meaning
And from their meaning was our crime
Last night I had a dream
Where the guards all fell asleep
I jumped the fence outside this penn
And then I hot-wired up the warden's jeep
And I took a walk

(Chorus)

I still remember all those nights
We had together up on Mars
We both stood in line to get some new tattoes
While the kids got cut some scars
And when they check the beds tonight
They'll find a note scratched in the pine
You now can seek me underground
Where I'll be monkey-wrenchin' all the time

(Chorus)
