about

A "delightfully bitter" song about being laid off! Hooray! "Don't let the door hit you on the way out!"

No keyboards were used in this one. Electric guitar, acoustic guitars, bass, drums (okay, drum samples), voices and lots of processing.

lyrics

The Way Out
by d.s. benson
10/1/2012

We shaped up
We shipped out
Worked hard and we
Didn't leave any doubt about it
We got up
But not until the bell ring
We walked proud
Did more than they were asking

chorus:
Thank you for your service to
The company. Whatever
befalls you now good luck to you
In all your future endeavors


We counted
Our blessings
We didn't think
That we were so replaceable
Our neighbors
Had lower cost o' labor
We never once suspected
Our dog tags were erasable

<bridge>
Expected no guarantees
(Don't look for a handout)
We got none
But a boot print on our backsides
(Don't let the door hit you on the way out)

<instrumental>

Reassess! Move over!
Lay your body down
For we need something
To roll over
Progress! Erase me!
So proud I made it
Possible to seamlessly
Replace me.


chorus:
Thank you for your service to
The company. Whatever
befalls you now good luck to you
In all your future endeavors


Don't let the door hit you on the way out
On the way out
On the way out
