Prognathous gears grind
So diligent and serrated they mesh
Toothed cogs chum
So trenchant against soft flesh

Worked to the bone
Up to the hilt, deprecated
Raw materialism
To stoke the furnaces

Toiling, rotting
Life slowly slips away
Consumed, inhumed

In this mechanized corruption line
By mincing machinery industrialized
Pulped and pulverized
Enslaved to the grind

Blood, sweat, toil, tears
Arbeit macht fleisch
Grave to the grind
Blood, sweat, toil, tears
Arbeit macht fleisch

Inimitable gears twist
To chum a living grave
Stainless cogs shredding
Scathing pistons bludgeon and flail

Stripping to the bone
Retun mandrels levitate
Just raw material
Your pound of flesh for the suzerain

Toiling, rotting
Life slowly dissipates
Consumed, inhumed

In a corruption line, mechanized
By mincing machinery, industrialized
Crunched and brutalized
Engrave to the blind

Blood, sweat, toil, tears
Arbeit macht fleisch
Blood, sweat, toil, tears
Arbeit macht fleisch

Arbeit macht fleisch
