RISE AGAINST - Re-Education Through Labor Lyrics

Re-Education (Through Labor) by Rise Against#84o the sound of a heartbeat pounding away

To the rhythm of the awful rusted machines

We toss and turn but don't sleep

Each breath we take makes us thieves

Like causes without rebels

Just talk but promise nothing else



We crawl on our knees for you

Under a sky no longer blue

We sweat all day long for you

But we sow seeds to see us through

The sometimes dreams just don't come true

We wait to reap what we are due



To the rhythm of a time bomb ticking away

And the blare of the sirens combing the streets

Chased down like dogs we run from

Your grasp until the sun comes up



We crawl on our knees for you

Under a sky no longer blue

We sweat all day long for you

But we sow seeds to see us through

The sometimes dreams just don't come true

Look now at what they've done to you



White needles buried in the red

The engine roars and then it gives

But never dies

'Cuz we don't live

We just survive

On the scraps that you throw away



I won't crawl on my knees for you

I won't believe the lies that hide the truth

I won't sweat one more drop for you

'Cuz we are the rust upon your gears

We are the insects in your ears

We crawl

We crawl

We crawl... all over you



We sow the seeds to see us through

Our days are precious and so few

We all reap what we are due

A judge's sky no longer blue

We bring the dawn all over new

We crawl

We crawl

We crawl... all over you
