Stand-alone Nation

Another grueling day

To make our pay

But there’s no other way

In our situation

*

Those at the top of the line

Think it’s all fine

To have cheese and wine

Every day

Without earning their pay and wages

*

Yes the line tows the name

But there are

Rules to this game

Share the load fairly

Between everyone

Workloads and payoffs

Towards our elation

**

Just your usual day

We make our pay

When there’s no other way

In our situation

*

There are

Those that will fight all

To prove they’re entitled

Live decadent despite all

Every day

With some imaginary

stand-alone nation

*

But the fight causes pain

For those who

Work hard and strain

Please treat our labor fairly

Each and every day

Risking safety and health

Yet forced to be patient

**

Waiting for the pay-off

Waiting to be

shown consideration

When we work all our days

Work hard to share

The strength

Of our own stand-alone nation

*

Consistent effort

To boost health and wellness

With more understanding

Less frustration

More people working together

Pitch in

And care about

Improving the situation

**

Another super cool day

Do what we love and get paid

There should be no other way

In our situation

*

Those that won’t

Give us the time

Think it’s always fine

Try to mess with our mind

Every day

When we all should be

Tuned into the same station

*

Each has their claim to fame

But there are

Rules to this game

With all that we say

Contracts fulfilled

Conscience creation

**

Share your words fairly

Waiting for the pay-off

Waiting to be

shown consideration

When we work all our days

Work hard to share

The strength

Of our own stand-alone nation

*

Consistent effort

To boost health and wellness

With more understanding

Less frustration

More people working together

Pitch in

And care about

Improving the situation
