Oh, what the hell is going on, the flesh has turned to stone
The city starts to burn, and they’re wreckin’ it, wreckin’ it
Oh, what are we supposed to do, as they tighten every screw,
Hammer every nail and they’re wreckin’ it, wreckin’ it
Oh, while the carburetor smiles, it turns inches into miles
Now we’re on the road to the Chaos Factory
Now, the blueprints have been drawn, the old ways are now gone
No sense in making repairs, and they’re wreckin’ it, wreckin’ it
Oh where’s the voice of all the men, protesting to the end
Everyone’s replaced and they’re wreckin’ it, wreckin’ it
Oh, the robots have been built, upgraded without guilt
No humanity remains… in the Chaos Factory
Rusty wrenches, dirty gears, collected through the years
Acid starts to churn and they’re wreckin’ it, wreckin’ it
They’ve got us by the tail, if the infrastructure fails
Corroding our control… cause they’re wreckin it, wreckin it
Oh, they’re tightening the bolts, the electricity jolts
To spin the belts and wheels… in the Chaos Factory.
We live just to feed the machine, keep the motor running clean
Against the A-frame barricade, and they’re wreckin it, wreckin it.
Punch a clock for all the hours, while the rich men live in towers.
We can’t drink gasoline, and they’re wreckin it, wreckin it
Ore smelting over fires, big deals made under spires
Now we breathe acetylene in the Chaos Factory.
Oh, the past forever looms, released from all the tombs
The workers will uprise… against the Chaos Factory
