lyrics

I don't remember when
I had my last vacation
Or a day off
Productivity
Without fame or money
There's no respect
The things that matter most
Are often neglected
They have our souls

Somebody tell me why do we work so hard?
All this time and we have only gone this far
Two steps forward, one step back, we're exhausted
We work and work and work and work and then we die
Somebody tell me why do we work so hard?
All this time and we have only gone this far
Two steps forward, one step back, we're exhausted
We work and work and work and work and then we die

All we do is survive, survive, survive
When we really should thrive, should thrive, should thrive
All we do is survive, survive, survive
When we really should thrive, should thrive, should thrive
All we do is

I am just too busy
To make myself break free
From this machine
I know that my career
Does not define me dear
It's just for dough
Too much prosperity
In the minority
Why can't it stop?

Somebody tell me why do we work so hard?
All this time and we have only gone this far
Two steps forward, one step back, we're exhausted
We work and work and work and work and then we die
Somebody tell me why do we work so hard?
All this time and we have only gone this far
Two steps forward, one step back, we're exhausted
We work and work and work and work and then we die

All we do is survive, survive, survive
When we really should thrive, should thrive, should thrive
All we do is survive, survive, survive
When we really should thrive, should thrive, should thrive
