Hey yes I had the company tour
got my resources and ready to whirl
Hold on I need to attend a dozen meetings
back to back says my diary sending me greetings
When do I pee, let alone eat
fuel to my body and brain cells to meet
Shut up and move on says the company song
we don’t want the share price to be prolonged.
Sit in that meeting, laptop open and pretend
you know what's going on, its a doodle my friend
Suppress your voice is a safety net you see
no judgment incurred, no fear of reprieve.
For all those ideas and things that you know
could of course put on a terrific show
Under the dominance of another’s loud voice
it's easy to make a lesser choice
Leaving the office at the end of the day
done enough to earn my pay
Energy spent no time for the next
numb my heart and sleep the rest.
What's with this suffering here at work
hey I'm not talking about all the perks
To set myself free and express my true voice
its my human need to have that choice.
For the value of work is to important to waste
done right it can be full of human grace
We need each other to break the tolerance chatter
so we can focus on and change what really matters
Standing up for what you know to be true
has been a centuries old struggle for us to endure
We need it now more any ever
to pave the path our children to gather
For what do we leave them as they turn the key
cross the welcome mat of employment you see
Is it more of the same or a difference they will feel
I hope its the latter if it's up to my deal.
So come all adults, connect with your heart
Add in the head, the gut and lets really get smart
From this place trust the results will flow
doing whats right….. its the best of human you know.
