Fear Factory - Slave Labor Lyrics

My chains are paper thin, and they're welded with ink
Sealed inside a legal trap, so tight blood don't leak
A contract with the devil for a life of disdain
See me in the limelight, an indentured slave

I blame myself

God, help me pour this gas on me
I need to drown in flames to be free
Help me pour this gas on me
Help me pour this gas on me

God help me pour this gas on me [x4]

Choke another product for the mass to consume
The flocks of mindless sheep that have been corporately groomed
Ignorance through apathy like drones in the hive
A slave on the prayer wheel in conformed disguise

I blame myself

God, help me pour this gas on me
I need to drown in flames to be free
Help me pour this gas on me
Help me pour this gas on me

I sold my soul [x11]

God, help me pour this gas on me
I need to drown in flames to be free
Help me pour this gas on me
Help me pour, this gas on me

God help me pour this gas on me [x4]

Fear Factory Slave Labor Comments
  1. Sebastian Barrera

    spotify NOW!!

  2. Wolfman Roy

    The truest Godly people are more than likely Satanists because even Jesus Christ was mistaken as the Devil due to his hatred for established spiritual and government authorities and money guzzling uncaring religions and the Revelation of John practically says Jesus Diablo ain't yo savior no mo! Love your enemies kids... Until I come back and beat them senseless with my irony rod of hope and freedom! Mwahahahahaaaahahaaahaaajajajaaa!

  8. MelinaDesireé Bondaz

    Love it! ImI

  9. rod rod

    Everytime dude next door used to cranck up some horrible music I put my 2 studio monitors 110w rms each on the window and blast archetype for around 30/40min, or till the whole neighborhood get silent, lots of fun, see... I need silence...Archsilence

  10. MethodoneOfficial

    Spotify needs to FUCKING add this album!

  11. The End Of The F***ing World

    Why the fuck isn’t this on iTunes

  12. Herschel Walker

    Some may disagree, but Descent is the hardest song they've ever wrote, listen closely.

  13. Ivan Nikolov

    Not sure if I like Christian more on bass or guitar. Great musician

  14. Jackie Yoshi

    PISSED OFF! Imma blast this till I calm down.

  21. Ruben Villanueva carrasco

    Muy buenos

  22. Demonic Pic Grinder

    My fave album since soul of a new machine. Still a mega fan . On the metallica World magnetic tour Melbourne had Lamb of god supporting which I did appreciate. And I think it was Sydney that got fear factory . I really was shattered we didn't get fear factory. As I needed to hear Archetype and corporate cloning live . the machine gun drums live would of been titanic.

  23. Kowabunga US

    Why isn’t this album available on any streaming services?

  24. Alessandro Bernardi

    Playing this on your way to work makes you really think about your own life...


    This is hard AF

  26. Curtis Reeves

    2019! Third degree burns don’t stop me from loving this song

    Mitchell Kelly

    Think of it as being forged in fire, like something from FF

  27. the SUBMARINES

    I have a tattoo of a skeleton burning in flames and i give credit to this song here FF

  28. Cynik

    Fear Factory + old Sepultura with Max + old Machine Head

  29. J Swagner

    God damn it’s a shame that this album basically got deleted. There’s some good fucking tracks.

    "Slave Labor" contains references to the self-immolation of a person against the corporate world, e.g. Kathy Change."Cyberwaste" contains references to anonymous Internet users who express haughty opinions only because they are "safe behind the cyberscreen".[3]The title track "Archetype" is directed at then ex-guitarist Dino Cazares: "The infection has been removed/The soul of this machine has improved." Frontman Burton C. Bell has said in an interview that "'Archetype,' defines what Fear Factory is, completely. It has classic Fear Factory parts, and the heavy/melodic vocals, but without being forced or contrived.

    "Bite the Hand That Bleeds" was used in the film Saw and the music video is a bonus feature on one of the versions of the DVD."Slave Labor" is featured on UFC: Ultimate Beat Downs, Vol. 1.The album and its title song are referenced in the game Fallout 3 on one of the terminals, where a certain "B. Bell" reports on a terminal that the virus on the "Archetype FF06" mainframe has been cleaned, and that "the infection has been removed, the soul of this machine has improved".A remixed version of the song was featured on the soundtrack to OVA Galerians: Rion.

  42. JohnACorp782

    "The best song you'll ever hear.". That's one bullshit description. A good track nonetheless, but best? Not even close.

  43. Jasmine Rodriquez

  53. ArcFlash 64

    This song hits so fuckin hard, it's a shame the band doesn't acknowledge its existence.

  54. gimilkhad16

    Slave Labor is forever ingrained in my subconscious since 2004. It's always there, lurking in the back of my mind, waiting to assault a steering wheel, a desk, whatever my idle hands come in contact with.

  55. Venim1ceblade

    Eric Lillibridge brought me here 💪

  56. shamrock32

    Anybody else hear the riff from Megadeth's "She Wolf"? Both songs are great but just something I noticed....

  57. AmateurSuperFan

    I listen to this song every single day before and after work as I slave away my life to sell my soul for stones (money), powers me to be able to withstand it (for now)

  58. Nicholas Ward

    One of the best drummers ever.

  71. Samuel Overs

  72. Luis Barrera

    Interesting way to make this song sound nihilistic and suicidal when its actually a song abouy standing up and take responsibility by waking up the internal fires of willpower. Well played Fear Factory. Well played.

    Lame band

  82. Neal Heimer

  83. Jesse G

    I wonder if the lyrics are a reference to that monk that immolated himself out of protest?

  84. Ryan

  85. Dominik Wiśniewski

    That doublebass



  86. nbaker8513

    Apparently 76 people have their panties in a bunch.

  87. Peter Pimmelmann
