Sing Along with Us

Corporate ParadiseDara Simkin
00:00 / 04:04

As I walk through the hallways seems like everyone’s dead

People walking  like zombies with their phones in their head

 

Coz I’ve been workin the grind for so long, that

Even my wife and dog think my mind is gone

But I ain’t never found a job that gave me real purpose 

Me be treated like a number that aint’ so unheard of 

You better watch how you're talkin', and who you’re stalkin’

Or you and your homies might be lined up for dole

I really hate to trip but I gotta go

If I don’t take holidays my family gives me shit, yo

 

The coffee tastes like shit, as I drown in excel sheets 

At my desk late at night sendin’ swears to the fluro lights 

 

Been spendin' most my life,

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Hardly ever see my wife,

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Never really go outside,

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Only see florescent lights,

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Look at the is cloud-based system, they got me facin'

I can't live a creative life, I’m a slave to my screen

 

Turn my frown upside for  the HR team

Too much scrollin’ on insta got me chasin' dreams

 

I'm an educated fool with money on my mind

Got my Keep Cup in my hand and the fear in my eye

 

KPI’s are just killin’ people’s imagination 

What if we replaced being efficient with being effective? 

 

Burn out ain't nothin' but an email away

I'm livin' life, in boring meetings, what can I say

I'm thirty-three now, but will I live to see thirty-four

The way things are going I don't know

 

Tell me why are we, so blind to see

That there’s more to life than these fucking spread sheets

 

Been spendin' most my life

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Wish I worked just  9-5

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Keep my head down all the time,

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Always feel in constant strife

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Power and the money, money and the power

Minute after minute, hour after hour

Everybody's strivin', but most of them ain’t smilin’

Shits going down in the board room but no one’s really listening 

 

They say I gotta learn, but nobody’s a real teacher

I’m staring at a PowerPoint so how can they reach me?

 

Don’t really try, don’t give a crap

Pfft….Only care about their net promoter score, fool 

 

Been spendin' most my life,

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Always wear a suite and tie 

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

No one asks about my life

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Think I may just start to cry

livin' in the corporate paradise

 

Tell me why are we, so blind to see

That the one's we hurt, are you and me  

Tell me why are we, so blind to see

That the one's we hurt, are you and me

Ahhhhh, Ahhhh, Ahhhh, Ahhhh

Ahhhhh, Ahhhh......
