Mac Lethal - Weekly Wage Lyrics

I said a weekly wage is an addiction
It's so much worse than any drug
You're a slave to security and comfort
So you never pursue the things you love [x2]

You got a job that you hate
And every day you want to punch your fuckin' boss in the face
Direction lost and you're late
There is a master piece inside of you that you gotta create
But you whisper every time you're talking to fate
See if you quit your job you won't have money (true)
But one thing you will be is hungry (true)
And you always turn creative and savage as fuck
When your life is hard and you ain't comfy
See if you quit your job you won't have benefits (true)
But one thing you will have is fitness (true)
To innovate and learn and get a real work ethic
So you can start your own damn business

I mean what
You want an easy answer
You want someone to pat you on the head and tell you it will be okay
You got the fucking nerve to wonder why you're so depressed
When you're sitting in a cubicle like 10 hours a day
Working for a company that you don't really care about
Helping build someone else's kingdom (true)
That's a motherfucking consequence of putting finances
Over true happiness and freedom

I said a weekly wage is an addiction
It's so much worse than any drug
You're a slave to security and comfort
So you never pursue the things you love [x2]

Now listen to me
If you got a job and you love it then you should keep it
But if you get a knot in your stomach after the weekend
'Cause you don't like mondays 'cause you'll be in an office all week not getting sun rays
You feel like inside of you
Deep inside of you
There's an artist with an attitude
Then listen to me
This is what you gotta do
You gotta stop being a fucking corporate prostitute
That is what you are my friend, I'm telling you the honest truth
I understand my friend you gotta pay your bills and all
So thinking about just walking out your job is no easy pill to swallow
Plus what happens if you try to start your own company and it fails
Oh my god what if you fail
Well failure is a teacher that will tear your ACL
During the first game of the season
With your parents in the bleachers
And failure is the teacher that has helped 100,000 lost sailors find the beaches
Find the beaches

I said a weekly wage is an addiction
It's so much worse than any drug
You're a slave to security and comfort
So you never pursue the things you love [x2]

You only get to live once
One..... time

You only get to live once
Make the most of it
Don't let money beat you to the point where you don't even enjoy your life

Live in your car

    I work just as much as I need to in order to get by so that I can spend the rest of my time working on my own empire instead of someone else's. I'm the happiest I've ever been in my entire life.

  16. Crystal Clear Game Studios

    ...and you're going to go up against tom macdonald? bow out now...


    Are you serious? This song is way better than Tom's political content. It's better written due to being more accurate, explains much more difficult concepts and does it better than Tom, and he has been rime schemes as well.

    Crystal Clear Game Studios

    @GameOverPC agree to disagree, this was awful in my opinion... This dude might be encouraging people to chase their dreams, and that's all well and good, but Tom's message is that stereotypes don't fully apply to anyone and we should love everyone.

    This video and the stop motion is freaking genius. Mac, you're awesome.

  56. Light Tha Dark

    All you idiots making fun of what he said must be corporate slaves.
    That tells me that many people aren't intelligent enough to survive without the structure provided by good old Uncle Sam. Wake up and hear the wisdom folks. Open your minds.

  57. il signore delle fonti


  58. Heto107

    All these people with money telling you how to live your life while you'd give a few fingers just to get the same two days off a week.

  59. Rejected ReZx

    How the hell does this not have more views????


    Mac.... thank you SO MUCH for this video... I been a factory worker for 6 years, and I had enough today.... so I left....
    I will now have a new job that I enjoy and be able to spend more time with my family....

    I woke up to the rat race... and I’m glad to finally realize that $$$ should never come before family.

    I hope you are having a great time on the road, meeting awesome people, seeing new things, and performing wonderful sets at sold out venues.
    Much respect brother.
    I’ll see ya at a show soon.


  61. Stuart Buchanan

  62. Tin Tizzy

    Im a slave to not sleeping in a ditch

  68. Im feeling sad af

    If thats whats needed to keep living with my wife, ill pretend that i didnt ingested the red pill and keep being miserable and not enjoying my life. She is worth it 100%, everyday. She is my life, everything else is just a prop

  69. Muggy 177

    Listened to this so many times keep it up man

  70. Scrambles the Death Dealer

    Living in your car isn't that bad... until it's about 10 degrees out and you have to turn the car on every so often so you don't freeze to death... but it could be worse.

  71. امیل میرزاییان


  72. Silver Spoon

    Nice butt Mac 😸😸

  73. Tariq Yasiin

    I legit just quit my job...

  74. Vagos Sunderground blablabloublias

    I see many comments here of people hating their jobs. At least you got one. It's true that weekly wage sucks but it's the only thing you got to start off your life.

    Vagos Sunderground blablabloublias

    One more thing: I quit my job and now I regret it

  75. verdatum

    But...My job pays me a _lot_ of money...The things I want to do don't pay shit :(


    then find a way to make the thinbg you love to do profitable

  76. Es Gee

    Find the opportunity and bring your passion with you.

  77. K _E

    This reminds me of Office Space. If there's ever a part II this will be the theme song.

  78. RedLemons

    dat ear tho

  79. Jaycee

    This is a little off...

  80. randomchicken01

    Lmao I appreciate that you literally fucking write raps and record YouTube videos for a HEFTY LIVING but not everyone's dream job works out, so they go on benefits, then they have to go get a job to afford a home. Not everyone wants to be homeless after 30 failed ventures.

  81. Rebel Without A Coat

    If I could afford a car I'd live in it!! Nice one Mac

  82. Paradise on Pennies

    I live in my car with my wife and dogs! Going on two years now! It's the best life ever! Paradiseonpennies check us out everybody can do it!

  83. True Rhymes

    This is so fuckin dope!!!

  84. SIdoubleN

    So real

  85. Heather Johnson

    Love it. Very true. Although in my case the weekly wage funds doing what I love, so I guess it balances out?

  86. Phill Pauley

    I can’t stand rap but I LOVE THIS!!! What a strong message! Wow! First vid and I liked and subbed!


    I love my job. I work as a tool repair man. I fix tools.

  88. ThatSaloonLife

    speaks to me. in the middle of making this choice.

  89. Preair Ele

    Wow gj fr

  90. Ty Palfi

    Brooooo, this song is the truth! Great job!

  91. Levi B

    I'm 30 years old with a family and i'm skilled in a trade where I manage somebody else company and I spend about 50 hours a week there to the point where I can't even enjoy my life. I'm currently setting up to start my own company and try to find my beach.

  92. Energent Music - Originalbeatsproducer
