lyrics

Elevated to the top floor
Voice print opens the door
It's all yours
Swiveling chair, mahogany desk
The paranoramic view is picturesque
-
Remote control venetian blinds
Dim the skyline dripping over time
A hot tub and masseusse on call
But you're better work hard
If you wanna play hard ball
-
Yo this ain't Monopoly
Plain and simple it's proper monotony
Get set for a life in the jet set
Or should I say a life in a head set
-
Line three, it's a conference call
Think out the box baby, stay on the ball
You're a millionaire but you don't care
You've made it to the top but you'd better stay there
---
A board metting at half past three
With the CEO and the new VP
They got a problem with the Japanese
They bought a first class ticket for you overseas
-
You got a mission to micro-manage
Weed out the problem and make it vanish
You might break with the protocol
But if you leave with a handshake problem solved
-
It was a job well done
You passed the test and got the respect of everyone
The sideline sitters and the sword-swallowers
The bottom feeders and the board followers
-
You want food for thought just devour with this
You're either powerless or on the power list
Just remember that corporate culture
Starts with adreneline and ends with ulcers
---
But now you're losing drive
Third quarter stock takes a nose dive
And the brass want explanations
It's in the papers, they're losing patience
---
Some heads gotta roll
They gonna try and squeeze you out through a loophole
Say goodbye to your swivelling chair
You made it to the top but you couldn't stay there
---
Decisions
Wake up everyday you gotta make'em again
