lyrics

5 A.M., at the crack of dawn
Gotta catch the, the morning bus
Another mindless day at the factory
'Cause I didn't have many opportunities
The scrapes, the scars, the skin that's coarse
These are my, my working class hands

Washing dishes, overbearing soap
There's no clock or radio to cope
Scrubbing to provide for my family
'Cause I didn't have many opportunities
The scrapes, the scars, the skin that's coarse
These are my, my working class hands

Financial mobility, sardonically so out of reach
Perpetual poverty due to elitist policies
No child left behind, pointless tests were standardized
Public schools with wasted time - the underfunded youth, Pariah

U.S. policy appeases the symptoms of failure
But ignores the root of the problem
Structural inequality

Danish flexicurity - employment stability
Ensured social security, no struggle for meals to eat
Labor market's regulated, unemployed get education
The U.S. creates alienation, resulting in incarcerations
