lyrics

Lay it all out, (whoa, oh-oh)
there’s so much to do (whoa, oh-oh)
Write it all down, (whoa, oh-oh)
it’ll help you get through (whoa, oh-oh)
The pain from the past (whoa, oh-oh)
and what’s going on (whoa, oh-oh)
There’s a list on the wall (whoa, oh-oh)
and it’s almost dawn (whoa, oh-oh)
No one ever told you life would be cool
Keep on doing what they’re telling you to

Chorus:
Get up get out back to the grind, there’s a
smile and a bullet with you in mind
Why stay down when you’re so close to
shining?

Time’s going by (whoa, oh-oh)
and the clock is ticking (whoa, oh-oh)
Can’t slow down (whoa, oh-oh)
but I keep on thinking (whoa, oh-oh)
What’s after this (whoa, oh-oh)
And how’s it gonna be (whoa, oh-oh)
When it’s all done (whoa, oh-oh)
now and it’s up to me (whoa, oh-oh)
No one ever told you life would be free
Keep on writing and sing with me…

CHORUS

Get up get out back to the grind, there’s a
smile and a bullet with you in mind
Why stay down when you’re so close
Why stay down when you’re so close

Get up get out back to the grind, there’s a
smile and a bullet with you in mind
Why stay down when you’re so close to shining?
Pick your ass up and keep it in line

CHORUS

Get up get out back to the grind, there’s a
smile and a bullet with you in mind
Why stay down when you’re so close
Why stay down when you’re so close

To shining?
