If you wanna live you gotta work 
That's just the structure and the way of the world 
And I'm trying to stay sane and find time 
And we're all pushing through in the queue of the daily grind 
If you wanna live you gotta work 
That's just the structure and the way of the world 
And I'm trying to stay sane and find time 
And we're all pushing through in the queue of the daily grind 

I spilled a cup of coffee again 
And felt the urge to scream obscenities, but had to refrain 
See I was rushing out the door just like I do every A.M. 
Hop into my RAV and rev through all the mayhem 
Hustle to my cubicle then head into a meeting 
I recall the weekend but the memory is fleeting 
Put my head down and plug away till its noon 
Quick break, fresh air then its back to resume 
I swear to God we're being pushed through the motions 
This routine is colder than how Olaf was in Frozen 
I, I'm looking up like please give me a sign 
And I'm thinking of my dreams they glaze over my eyes 
Because its all about the music, always been about the music 
I get this anxiety like shit what am I doing 
Oh, paying bills and perpetuate the cycle 
Punch in, punch out in the name of survival 
 
If you wanna live you gotta work 
That's just the structure and the way of the world 
And I'm trying to stay sane and find time 
And we're all pushing through in the queue of the daily grind 
If you wanna live you gotta work 
That's just the structure and the way of the world 
And I'm trying to stay sane and find time 
And we're all pushing through in the queue of the daily grind 

I'm so tired, I'm just so damn exhausted 
In the Land of the Free, but I'm feeling like a hostage 
Hands to the sky if you feeling like you lost it 
Working for the man and the man's about the profit 
Plotting on the low while I prepare for my escape 
Let's hear it for the policies and all the red tape 
Treated like an imbecile and that I am deplorable 
Horrible, tell me, tell me where did all the morals go? 
Low pay with even lower self worth 
So am I, working to live or am I living to work 
Frequently I hold it in because the misery's unbearable 
Its broken my spirit so my attitude is terrible 
Pick myself up and try to pull it back together 
Got my eye on the horizon and my navigation tethered 
'Cause if I'm going down, then I'm going down swinging 
Raise a toast to myself, 'cause it's only the beginning 

 If you wanna live you gotta work 
That's just the structure and the way of the world 
And I'm trying to stay sane and find time 
And we're all pushing through in the queue of the daily grind 
If you wanna live you gotta work 
That's just the structure and the way of the world 
And I'm trying to stay sane and find time 
And we're all pushing through in the queue of the daily grind  

Hey, tell me where your passion lies 
Surprise me with your inner most desires and let's improvise 
You wanna get angry, go ahead its all productive 
Then settle down and make a plan so now it is constructive 
You control your fate long as your heart keeps pumping 
Say, "All these naysayers can't tell me nothing" 
All these naysayers can't tell me nothing 
On the track to success and I'm full blown running 
I started asking questions and I'm searching for the answers 
Guided by this inner light, I hold it like a lantern 
And if I ever doubt that I'll escape the daily grind 
I'll just swap out the art to get the right frame of mind 
So when I'm sitting in my car on my morning commute 
It may appear that I'm complacent and just following suit 
And I hold back the urge to turn around and straight bail 
'Cause I will never, I refuse to, you won't see me fail 

If you wanna live you gotta work 
That's just the structure and the way of the world 
And I'm trying to stay sane and find time 
And we're all pushing through in the queue of the daily grind 
If you wanna live you gotta work 
That's just the structure and the way of the world 
And I'm trying to stay sane and find time 
And we're all pushing through in the queue of the daily grind
