lyrics

Work 9 to 5 and nights trading sleep for appetites that don't eat
Plastic cards used all the time depleting the funds that put shoes on my feet
Hand to the sky as it falls asleep, cabs driving fast past me
Time passes by but it's way past me, tread ahead but don't fall too deep

So spread the news
So much that's left to prove
Bring me down but I refuse
cuz I've paid my dues

Bridges burn with nowhere to turn, broken tracks but I ain't looking back
Slippery when it's wet keep my feet dead set you're gonna get what you get
Never learned to sat away from hurt a sick trick to keep my walls built thick
Careful what you wish I can take what you dish my pride's the one thing left

So spread the news
So much that's left to prove
Bring me down but I refuse
cuz I've paid my dues

Work 9 to 5 and nights trading sleep for appetites that don't eat
Plastic cards used all the time depleting the funds that put shoes on my feet
Hand to the sky as it falls asleep, cabs driving fast past me
Time passes by but it's way past me, tread ahead but don't fall too deep

So spread the news
So much that's left to prove
Bring me down but I refuse
cuz I've paid my dues
