Slave to the Wage (оригинал Placebo). Раб зарплаты (перевод Maksim Coma из Moscow). Run away from all your boredom. Сбеги от своей тоски, Run away from all your whoredom and wave. Сбеги от разврата и на прощание помаши ручкой. Your worries, and cares, goodbye.
Produced by Paul Corkett. Album Black Market Music. Slave To The Wage Lyrics. Runaway from all your boredom Runaway from all your whoredom And wave your worries and cares goodbye. All it takes is one decision A lot of guts, a little vision To wave your worries and cares goodbye. It's a maze for rats to try It's a maze for rats to try It's a race, a race for rats A race for rats to die It's a race, a race for rats A race for rats to die. Sick and tired of Maggie's farm She's a bitch with broken arms To wave your worries and cares goodbye.

Slave to the Wage" is a single by alternative rock band Placebo. Taken from their third record, Black Market Music, it reached number 19 in the UK singles chart. The song, inspired by the drudgery of having a "9 to 5" job in the modern world, is about not working oneself into an early grave. Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" is also mentioned in the lyrics. The song samples the intro of "Texas Never Whispers" by Pavement. The music video was directed by Howard Greenhalgh and was inspired by the movie Gattaca.
Slave To The Wage" as written by Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal, Steven Hewitt, Scott Kannberg and Stephen Joseph Malkmus. Placebo is a European band, so I could see them saying something about the UK. I think by farm it's referring to the job market. By saying her arms are broken I believe this may be to signify how she is sitting at the top of the hierarchical ladder and it's almost impossible for her to wave her worries or cares goodbye(broken arms).
