These are my hands
These are brick walls
Men can't break down brick walls
Men can't break down brick walls

These are my hands
These are brick walls
Men can't break down brick walls
Men can't break down brick walls

Where are the spoils?
Where are the treats?
I've been worked to the bone
I've been worked off my feet

Head in my hands
Hands in the soil
I've been cheated and stripped
Of my perfect retreat

We're all slaves on this ship
We're all slaves on this ship
This ship's sinking

We will not reach the shore
We will not reach the shore
Reach the shore

My back is sore, so I sleep on the floor
With the dust and the leaves that blew under the door

These are my chores
These are my chores
I must not show the strain

We're all slaves on this ship
We're all slaves on this ship
This ship's sinking

We will not reach the shore
We will not reach the shore
Reach the shore

This ship's sinking
This ship's sinking
This ship's sinking

Turn tail and run
Turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run

Turn tail and run
Turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run

Turn tail and run
Turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run

Turn tail and run
Turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run

Turn tail and run
Turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run

Turn tail and run
Turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run

We're all slaves on this ship
We're all slaves on this ship
This ship's sinking

We will not reach the shore
We will not reach the shore
Reach the shore

This ship's sinking
This ship's sinking
This ship's sinking

Turn tail and run
Turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run
I will turn tail and run
