Grindstone

Intro
On the way to work now
I feel like a wanker
Why did I even wake up?
up up up up?

Bus is full to bursting
Legs are fucking hurting
Why did I even wake up?
up up up up?

Verse 1
Work is killing, work’s degrading
There’s all of this stress
Ju: No, (I’m) not going back there
ar ax:whoa oh oh

Creeping cretins, machine morons,
Who the fuck ya talkin down to?
ju: no, I'm not going back there
ar ax: whoa oh oh

Prechorus: Ju: (why don't you just)...
Turnaround
Turnaround
Ju: (Just) Get yourself home now baby
Turnaround
Turnaround
me and ju: Just get your ass back (ax +ar:) ho-o-o-o-ome

Chorus
(Nose to the) grindstone
another fucking grindstone
Yeah you are what you do,
What you do degrades you, yeah yeah

(Nose to the) grindstone
another fucking grindstone
You know I don’t deserve
All of this wo-o-o-o-o-ork

Ju:
Boss is tryin’ to kill me
but no-one else can see it
Why did I even wake up?
up up up up?

Put poison in his sandwich
Deleted all the hard drives
Things’re fin’lly lookin’ up
up up up up!

total stop/pause - we should try it!

Verse 2
the Real enemy,
is the totality
Ju: Of people working
Whoa oh oh

homicidal way of life
They died for their work
ju: But work’s nothing to die for
Whoa oh oh

Prechorus:Ju: (why don't you just)...
Turnaround
Turnaround
Get yourself home now baby
Turnaround
Turnaround
Just get your ass back ho-o-o-o-ome

Chorus
(Nose to the) grindstone
another fucking grindstone
Yeah you are what you do
What you do degrades you yeah yeah

(Nose to the) grindstone
another fucking grindstone
You know I don’t deserve
All of this wo-o-o-o-o-ork

Break
Rap:

There’s no need to work now - ever!
Why don’t we just play - together!
If you say you're free - you lie!
Bonehead bosses - deny!

Jungle:

Discipline, the inhuman hell hole
The ultimate head fuck, modern control
Demeaning system of domination
Work makes a mockery - of freedom

Chorus X2 -
(Nose to the) grindstone
Another fucking grindstone
Yeah you are what you do
What you do degrades you yeah yeah

(Nose to the) grindstone
another fucking grindstone
You know I don’t deserve
All of this wo-o-o-o-o-ork


wo-o-o-o-o-ork
wo-o-o-o-o-ork
wo-o-o-o-o-ork
wo-o-o-o-o-ork

about

Louis Lingg and the Bombs Paris, France

Louis Lingg and the Bombs are goddamn punk-rock-garage-electro-big beat-pop-anarcho saviours of the 2 and half minute pop song. The bombs they throw are musical, they come from Paris (they could only come from Paris!) and they'll grab you and demand your instant attention.
Their sound is a mix of ultra-political anarchic punk rock and fizzing children's nursery rhyme riot-pop. Formed in 2006!!!!
