lyrics

A penny short and a minute too late
World on my shoulders, can’t take the weight
Work to the bone, and still it’s never enough
My feet are aching and my hands are rough

Oh, I wonder – how much more?
I wanna jump, but I can’t find my ground
Do I shut my mouth and keep sticking around?

Push me down into something new
Now I’m ready to fly – how about you?
Forget that raise
I’ll take a rise
I wanna thank you
So go ahead, push me down
Into something new

I’m showing up, each and every day
Give them my time, never use my brain
I wanna jump, but I can’t find my ground
Can I get a life and turn it around?

Push me down into something new
Now I’m ready to fly – how about you?
Forget that raise
I’ll take a rise
I wanna thank you

No matter what you say
I’m gonna walk away
It ain’t about what you pay
I ain’t gonna play your game

I ain’t got time to be caught in the grind
Or scared into wasting away

Push me down into something new
Now I’m ready to fly – how about you?
Forget that raise
I’ll take a rise
I wanna thank you

Push me down into something new
Now I’m ready to fly – how about you?
Forget that raise (forget that raise)
I’ll take a rise
I wanna thank you
So go ahead, push me down
Go ahead, push me down
Just go ahead and push me down
Into something new
