FACTORY

live 1978-1981 version


Early in the morning factory whistle blows
Man rises from bed and puts on his clothes
Man takes his lunch, walks out in the morning light
It's the working, the working, just the working life

Through the mansions of fear, through the mansions of pain
I see my daddy walking through them factory gates in the rain
Factory takes his hearing, factory gives him life
The working, the working, just the working life

Well end of the day, factory whistle cries
Men walk through these gates with death in their eyes
And you just better believe, boy, somebody's gonna get hurt tonight
It's the working, the working, just the working life
It's the working, the working, just the working life
Hmmmmm
Hmmmmm
Hmmmmm
Hmmmmm
Yeah


This is the live version used during the Darkness On The Edge Of Town tour. The above lyrics are for the 15 Dec 1978 performance at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, CA.
