lyrics

THE DISHWASHERS UNION

the rate at which we sell ourselves is blinding
but I just can't help it
just like a bug floating up to the light

so I wash them dishes downtown
I wash them dishes both day and night
and it's getting hard to fight the urge to walk away

how long will the water run?
how long till we pull the plug?

I'm elbow-deep in the chemicals
it takes to keep this galley up
and my wrinkles and cuts aren't going away

I'm scraping porcelain scapulas
I'm scraping the meat right off the bone
and disappearing alone into the night

how long will the water run?
how long till we pull the plug?
I'm sick and tired
I've had enough, I'm forming
the dishwashers union

so let's get together now
let's get together on this one
and fucking shout it out

oh, where is the refusal?
where is the refusal to waste our blood?
where is it?

how long will the water run?
how long till we pull the plug?
I'm sick and tired
I've had enough, I'm forming
the dishwasher's union

throw down your sponge
take off your gloves and join
the dishwashers union
