​A Million More

This song is by Zero Down and appears on the album With A Lifetime To Pay (2001).

Original video
Twelve years of education
And this is what I'm worth
Back breaking labor I endure
Every day to fill my purse

A subordinate life not one I choose
A hatred of the man that I answer too
Disposable man that's all I am
And there's a million more to fill the shoes I stand

The American dream skipped me it seems
Pointless by design a story with no theme
There's a million more just like me
Disenchanted unenthused

Overlooked in the mindless shuffle
To make way for something new
I'm a face without a name I'm a man without a place
After a lifetime of my loyalty on a whim to be replaced

27, Ivy League CEO
With his job bought and paid for by his family's tow.
Bred to believe that he's above the rest
While the sweat from my back is clearing his checks

A factory floor filled with human machines
For minimum wage we sacrifice our dreams.
And while supply of this labor exceeds demand
The room for this injustice will only expand.

There's a million more just like me
Disenchanted unenthused
Overlooked in the mindless shuffle
To make way for something new
I'm a face without a name I'm a man without a place
After a lifetime of my loyalty on a whim to be replaced

Disregard my sacrifice
Push me out in the cold.
Move my job south of the border
While my family pays the toll.

I have silenced my contempt
I've restrained my bitter rage
And now I choke to death
On the words I didn't say.
