Pigs on the Train

Guess what? I no longer a "one song a year" guy!

Been only churning out one song a year since 2005, with the second latest song coming after an 18 months drought.

I thought about the tune of this song, "Pigs on the Train", when I was taking the train everyday during a part-time stint at an internet business. It's such a miserable feeling (but enough to inspire me to have this tune in my head).

I imagine we are all animals headed for the abattoir, rounded up in the MRT trains.

Enough talk, here are the links. Check out the song "Pigs on the Train" at here or here.

Lyrics:

Wake up smelling like the toothpaste in your smile.
Some are sleeping as we move in rank and file.
Just like sheep in office clothes,
We run the race like rats in coats.
Every morning’s just the same.

We are just pigs, pigs on the train,
Prols to the bourgeoisies and their abattoir.
Pigs, at 8.30 we are there.
We are just pigs, we can’t complain,
We work for the money, slaves for economy.
Pigs, at 8.30 we are there.

Trains are packing, and the stations are not spared.
People fighting, as we push to get ahead.
Just like sheep in office clothes,
We run the race like rats in coats.
Every morning’s just the same.

We are just pigs, pigs on the train,
Prols to the bourgeoisies and their abattoir.
Pigs, at 8.30 we are there.
We are just pigs, we can’t complain,
We work for the money, slaves for the progeny.
Pigs, at 8.30 we are there
