lyrics

we are those people making coffee in the morning. we are rendering goods and providing services. we're in the stores and the factories. you don't see us. we're just figments of your imagination. we're not housewives. we're not children. we're not cripples or down-syndrome. we didn't have problems growing up. we just wanted something different for ourselves. we work hard to pay the bills. i'll gladly break my back so you can live here. we are in the factories. no doubt building your machinery day in and day out. what is that about twleve hour days and mediocre pay. just to try and stay at lower middle-class stage. i'm washing my hands. i'm making a stand against upper-management and this non-union shop. another ten hour day. another twleve hour day. then a fourteen hour day. i'll gladly break my back so you can live in a beautiful house. with nice new clothes. and have a wonderful life full of opportunities. i'm washing my hands. i'm making a stand against upper management and this non-union shop. you don't understand. you've never dirtied your hands. cause you stand atop the skyrise everyday. buying. selling peoples lives. i'm making a stand. i'm making a plan to retire at sixty. and start enjoying life right before I die. weekend warriors unite. weekend warriors unite. fighting for the extra pay. so we won't have to work as many days. so we can get a few days off. to finish off the stain on the back porch. fighting so the bills are paid. so insurance payments can be made. fighting so the kids can sleep in nice new beds with nice clean sheets. weekend warriors unite
