Piss Factory

As a teenager, Patti Smith worked summers at a depressing factory that made baby buggies. While inspecting pipes and reading Rimbaud's A Season in Hell in the factory basement, Smith dreamed of a better future — "I'm gonna be somebody," as this song later declared. "I was saying that as a young person, I still had desire — desire to do well," she told Rolling Stone. "Perhaps some of the people in the factory lost all desire. I can understand how that can happen … What 'Piss Factory' is about is: someone who in the midst of the dead felt alive."
