IAM THE DREG

CONDITIONING IS WEARING THIN
I'VE GOT THICK SKIN SO IT CAN'T GET IN
I'VE UPSET A FEW BUT THAT'S THEIR CRIME
I TRIED TO EXPLAIN BUT I HAVEN'T GOT TIME

A DREG OF HUMANITY,I DON'T PRODUCE
THERE'S NOTHING USEFUL SO WHAT'S THE USE
I DON'T CONDEMN YOU,YOU HAVE TO EXIST
SYSTEM RECRUITMENT THEY MAKE YOU ENLIST

I AM THE DREG
I AM MYSELF
I'M OFF THE PEG
AND ON THE SHELF

A CARD TO PAY FOR EVERYTHING,A CARD WITH YOUR NAME
A CARD WITH ALL THE DETAILS, SO THEY KNOW WHO TO BLAME
YOU'RE LABELED,TAGGED AND FILED AWAY
PUT IN THE WINDOW AS PART OF THE DISPLAY

SHOWING CONCERN FOR ANOTHER'S PLIGHT
IS ALL VERY WELL IF THE MOTIVES RIGHT
IT ISN'T EASY WHEN YOU'RE JUST IGNORED
YOU TRY TO SHOW AN INTEREST BUT YOU END UP BORED

I AM THE DREG
I AM MYSELF
I'M OFF THE PEG
AND ON THE SHELF
