about

What is the value of my labor? What am I accomplishing, and for whom? Would anything bad happen if I stopped? What worth do I bring into the world? For the record, I think I can answer most of these questions in ways that satisfy me, but they rattle around inside of my head nonetheless. I participate in a complex economy. Sometimes it's hard not to feel reduced to the value of my labor as described by others. Taking the time to find my own definition of that value is important. Asking these questions is important.

lyrics

It's late and I'm tired
Have I earned this feeling?
Have I pressed my will to a cause?
Defying odds for the task at hand

It's late and I'm tired
A thousand little burdens
Do I offer substance at all?
What is at stake if I should rest?
