The Day The Work Is Done

Album: Progressed (2011)
  • When all the work is done
    The work is done
    A place for everything til everything is in its place
    And every setting sun
    When the work was done
    Was a day that didn't go to waste
    When all the work is done
    It will be done
    Producing everything for everything to be replaced
    And in dirty towns we will settle down
    Manufacture for the human race

    The greatest story that was ever told in the lights of history
    Was the grand designs of other men
    And they built those walls for you and me

    So don't start thinking we can start again
    Start a riot in the streets my friend
    Or they'll start pulling us apart again
    'Cause idle hands make idle men
    Don't start thinking with your heart again
    'Cause idle hands make idle men

    When the work is done, the work is done
    We'll bebionic and beyond the circuits of our minds
    We'll get nothing done under electric sun
    Leave the weight of labor far behind

    We're the greatest story that was ever told
    But we don't know where we're from
    And the walls became but a memory
    Of the days when all the work begun

    So don't start thinking we can start again
    Start a riot in the streets my friend
    Or they'll start pulling us apart again
    'Cause idle hands make idle men

    Rejoice the day, the day the work is done
    Rejoice the day, the day the work is done

    Everybody's counting hours
    Everybody's counting hours

    Til the day the work is done
    Til the day the work is done

    So don't start thinking we can start again
    Start a riot in the streets my friend
    Or they'll start pulling us apart again
    'Cause idle hands make idle men

    So don't start thinking we can start again
    Start a riot in the streets my friend
    Or they'll start pulling us apart again
    'Cause idle hands make idle men

    Rejoice the day,the day the work is done
    Rejoice the day, the day the work is done

    Everybody's counting hours
    Everybody's counting hours Writer/s: MARK ANTHONY OWEN, ROBERT PETER WILLIAMS, GARY BARLOW, HOWARD PAUL DONALD, JASON THOMAS ORANGE
