Live To Work

Leave a comment

Man walks out the doorway to his house
trying to get to work today
Get’s to the end of the road
Lines of people only blocking his way

He tries hard to make his money
but it left his hands like his old lady
Now they foreclosed on his house
and he knows that that’s the way

Trying to make a living
It ain’t as easy as they say
Trying to live your life
It won’t happen on this day

We get distracted
by all the bullshit in our lives
Isn’t it supposed to be
what we put out that is attracted

Trying to get ahead
Trying to catch your breath
Do it now before you’re dead
Try to catch a break
Before you meet your death

I’m not getting any younger
And I’m not getting any stronger
but before I leave this place
I wanna see a smile upon a face

Trying to get ahead
Trying to catch your breath
Do it now before you’re dead
Try to catch a break
Before you meet your death

Young girl headed out to work
Cant get fair pay but wants some
The last thing she wants is some jerk
She just wants to find the fun

She’s losing all her patience
while she remains so composed
She’s always played by the rules
So why’s she’s getting hosed?

It’s a hustle and bustle world
our heads go spinning round and round
our lives get twirled and whirled
We can’t hear the music only just a sound

We just want to be happy
and enjoy our beautiful life
I don’t wanna sound sappy
But how do we stop the strife?

Trying to get ahead
Trying to catch your breath
Do it now before you’re dead
Try to catch a break
Before you meet your death

I’m not getting any younger
And I’m not getting any stronger
but before I leave this place
I wanna see a smile upon your face

Trying to get ahead
Trying to catch your breath
Do it now before you’re dead
Try to catch a break
Before you meet your death
