Now its early in the morning, as the sun breaks the hill
Another dawn is arriving, work is testing our will
Its about dedication, recognition of skill
So we do what it takes, earn the schillings for bills
Suppose we take it on back to the difficult days
Where we’re breaking our backs for attention that we crave
I’m shackled and chained on this road that I paved
I can’t dig myself out the whole of minimum wage, yeah
Another penny earned, a couple dollars are saved
But the labor never equals the inferior pay
Now they lookin’ down on us, a superior way
You can never match conditions my exterior braved
My will finally caves, as I uncover the reason
Leaving my commitment straight bruised, tattered and beaten
From the momentary break, work doubles and deepens
They might remember us but it’s a dim lit beacon

We’re the all forgotten, we’ve all been lost in
That moment, space and time when it’s not an option
We’ve all been plottin’, use these things in common
Cover up our back while our dreams are rotten


So we take a step back, we gotta take a breath
The earth fills our lungs with every syllable we stress
The grime covered clothes from emotions we suppress
At the end of the week one of those things you can’t undress
So we wear it as a cloak, take it as our burden
Don it in the streets while our neighbors close curtains
These young caliced hands are exhausted of working
But the sun barrels down while the wind is lurking
Just blowin’ down the willows, shaking up the limbs
Splintering the branches now we’ve had it to the brim
Had desire for the future but tomorrow looks grim
Sliver of hope in the distance yet the chances are slim
But there’s a lily in the ground as the dust fills the sky
After finally giving up I know that hope is still alive
Have to make our presence felt to help the memories survive
They finally think of the forgotten when they look into your eyes


We’re the all forgotten,
We’ve all been lost in
That moment space and time
When its not an option
We’ve all been plottin’
Use these things in common
To cover up our backs
