Changing the Time

There is a time when the operation of the machine
becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart,
that you can't even passively take part.

You've got to put your bodies upon the gears,
upon the wheels, upon the levers,
and upon all the apparatus -

and you've got to make it stop.

You've got to indicate to the people who run it,
to the people who own it, that unless you're free,
the machine will be prevented from working at all!
