Liner Notes: 

After 50/90 in 2018, the Catalytic Perverters went on a binge of creating new material. We basically just improvised for two hours during every session, sometimes quickly working out more complicated arrangements if we particularly liked an idea. From October to January, we came up with approximately 200 new compositions. As we work our way toward another 25 new songs, we've decided to put the brakes on a bit. So, I am reviewing recordings from the a fore mentioned time period and adding vocals to the ones that merit not being lost in the shuffle. This is one of those songs.

The music for this was improvised back on November 9th of 2018. I added the vocals today, near the end of August 2019.

Lyrics: 

work it
work it

work away your life if you want to
work away your life if you like, oh yeah

work your life to build a better future
for your children to work away their lives

work your life so maybe someday
you won't have to keep working away your life

work your life and hope you've got some time left
to enjoy what you've worked for all your life

work away your life if you want to
work away your life if you like, oh yeah

work it away
work it away

you only get one life
don't sell it off too cheap
I know you've got to eat
but this don't mean anything

the product will be released

work away your life if you want to
work away your life if you like, oh yeah

work your life to build a better future
for your children to work away their lives

oh yeah
oh yeah
work away their lives



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

you are turning these band practice jams into some killer songs. i especially like the way this one moves and the sound of the vocals. reminds me of some song i used to like in the 70s but cant put my finger on it.

Oh yeah! Love the build! And then those awesome rock vocals break out and I start missing my red ‘63 Chevy, windows down, me blasting Deep Purple on the radio on Pacific Northwest backroads! I can hear “Smoke on the Water” for sure. Do I say this with every song? Smile
