You wake up with pain in the morning Wash your face, your eyes begin to focus It's about 6:45 a.m. and you work at 7:30 a.m. Jump in the hot shower and let it soothe your back Then the routine; One pill for the stomach, Another for the back pain. Which ***** up your stomach more Then I welcome the headache Those come with the dehydration, Of the war in my body by the "medicine" And the stress.. the stress is the extra kick To the back around noon and you drink water Like a fish and the bathroom at work is so clean But your mind is still jacked Because this "medicine" don't work, but Somebody still got paid, thieves
Day in and day out you tunnel through the caves And the rocks fall on you And the people stare at you and wait And the ex-wife sits with her knife And the afternoon traffic laughs too
But you see yourself, Submerged in a body of clear blue water And your legs have become stronger And you jump, kick up with force Leaping out of the water and you swing! Beating anything that's in your path And it's usually life's big ******* face K.O. punch to the jaw The dust settles.
You check your legs and arms and neck And hands and ears and heart rate And you picture the next 30 years to tunnel through.
