FACTORY

live 1999 version


Well early in the morning factory whistle blows
Man rises from bed, 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 those factory gates in the rain
Factory takes his hearing, factory gives him life
The working, the working, it's 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, it's the working life
This is the working, the working, it's the working life
Yeah this is the working, the working, it's the working life
Yeah hooo
Yeah hooo
Yeah hooo
Yeah hooo
Yeah hooo
Yeah hooo


This is the live version used during the Reunion tour. Those lyrics refer to the 23 Oct 1999 performance at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA.
