about

The modern telling of a story old as man, whether it was loading sixteen tons or working for the weekend, most of us no matter how big or small know the shared burden upon our shoulders; the debts, rents, bills and obligations that keep us sweating away at Work.

lyrics

I got my nose to the grindstone.
Just can't wait to get home.
We think they shiny but they rhinestone.
Can't even hold them when our hands are bone from work.

Been digging in the coal mine.
Diving nails on the Galt Line.
One of these days I'm gonna get mine,
If this job doesn't kill me first,
better get back to work.

Just keep working from your birth till they put you in the earth.
'Cause only what you have and only what you make are what you're worth.
I'm starting to think that maybe this is some kind of curse.
You better shut up and work.

Heave-ho
Heave-ho
Heave-ho
Heave-ho

Just keep working from your birth till they put you in the earth.
'Cause only what you have and only what you make are what you're worth.
I'm starting to think that maybe this is some kind of curse.
You better shut up and work.

With vocals dripping with coarse emotion, guitar riffs skillfully take your hand through a heavy percussive spectacle, all coming together into a beautiful sonic storytelling. The curtain closes leaving you breathless and screaming for more. ... more
