Ever had a shit job, or one that is made worse by morons?
Do you find your life dictated by bullshit targets, jargon or the feeling that you are wasting your life making money for someone else?
The name comes from one such piece of nonsense. An unrealistic target, some upbeat newspeak, or corporate claptrap, that means nothing in the grand scheme of things, but for some of us, decides what kind of day we might have, or how much of our soul we have sacrificed as we crawl out of the office at the end of the day.
LESS THAN 500 WHAT?
'Now we the working population
Hate the fact that eight hours a day
Is wasted on chasing the dream of someone that isn't us
And we may not hate our jobs
But we hate jobs in general
That don't have to do with fighting our own causes
We the working population
Hate the nine-to-five day-in day-out
When we'd rather be supporting ourselves
By being paid to perfect the pasttimes
That we have harbored based solely on the fact
That it makes us smile if it sounds dope'
