Jackson Cannery

Stop the bus
I wanna be lonely
When seconds pass slowly
And years go flying by
You gotta stop the bus
We get off here

Enough’s enough
And I’m leaving this factory
All she wants is food on the table
And I won’t be able to bring it home

And all I want, come on,
Is all I need, yeh is free
‘Cos I’m a factory

Did Mother Nature tell you
Boy you come and go as you please
That’s what she said to me
But big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery

Millionaires and mill rats live side by side here
Messed up my brother’s mind
He’s far from earth
Tell me what’s he worth

The same as you
The same as me
In this factory

Did Mother Nature tell you
Boy you come and go as you please?
That’s what she said to me
But big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery

It’s four in the morning
Mother don’t know
That I’m going far away
She’s whispering to the moon
I hope he don’t join you soon

Baby boss
Climbs up from his soapbox
Great Caesar’s ghost
Knows what’s best for me
He says stop the bus

Did Mother Nature tell you
Boy you come and go as you please
That’s what she said to me
Big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery
Big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery
Big brother got the keys
And I got Jackson Cannery
