Slave Rant
This song was initially inspired by the image of Sampson trapped in chains regretting his choices. Then it developed into the cry of the working man, then the Egyptian slave, now us. This song is also the cry of the Monday Morning Warrior on the way to the office. The bridge in this song is from Psalm 30 line three and is translated as O Hashem, My Hashem I cried out to thee. Listen to it loud on the freeway on the way to work.

Lyrics


SLAVE RANT

I don’t want to go to work
I don’t want to meet the mule
My Body is sore and my boss is a jerk
And I don’t want to play the fool no more

One more day
And I might crack
One more whip and I’ll fight back
One more brick in this pyramid
And I’ll break the chains just like old Sampson did

I’m sweating my face off in the sun
My day’s work hasn’t even begun
So I get down and pray to the one
I said lord I need your help not to run

One more day
And I might crack
One more whip and I’ll fight back
One more brick in this pyramid
And I’ll break the chains just like old Sampson did

Havayah
Elohai
Shevati
Elecha

I ain’t passing this on
To my sons and my sons
There must be a better way to live
So this I resolve
To keep my Revolution on the one
And Pray that Hashem will send us his


One more day
And I might crack
One more whip and I’ll fight back
One more brick in this pyramid
And I’ll break the chains just like old Sampson did
