lyrics

Home is so far away
It's a days journey by rail
And you can't fucking leave
You've become an inefficiency
They put up nets to catch the bodies that will fall
Alone here in a sprawling foxconn factory complex.
We will read the stories of their deaths
On the same devices

Assembled by exhausted hands
And lives that are broken
The supply chain is broken
We are terrified by the thought
Of where our things come from
And the price we must pay
Doesn't include the true costs of the workers
And environment bear the burden of cheap consumer electronics
In a regulatory race to the bottom

They put up nets to catch the bodies that will fall
Until basic wages and working conditions are met
Instead they put up nets
Climbing to the top floor
Of the barracks in a sprawling foxconn factory complex
We will read the stories of their deaths on the same devices
Assembled by exhausted hands.

We are terrified by the thought
Of where our things come from
And the price we all must pay
