lyrics

I’m often trapped by my own thoughts
The paralysis of analysis
Staring up at a mountainous list of challenges
Challenged by malcontents
Both vets and amateurs
Far from masters
I’m convinced that they’re masochists
I battled and won to beat the law of averages
Abandon a gun, used peace to tame the savages
Some bad was done, but did good deeds to balance it
So when there’s no sun, my passion keeps my candle lit
I’m in a fight with father time and I can’t give in
He’s undefeated with a grip makes a man submit
Bruised with bandages
Wounds and damages
Time heals all, my mental scar never vanishes
Laying on my back, staring at the ceiling
Fan spinning like the planet that we all live in
Momentary doubt about my own mission
But back to reality
Time to get up and go get it

You need to get (get up) up right now and (right now)
You need to get (get up) up right now and (right now)
You need to get (get up) up right now and (right now)
You need to get (get up) up right now and (uh huh, yeah)

F what the haters say
And make today the day
Cause banking on seeing another day ain’t the way
The only shot you ever had may fade away
So choose purpose cause purpose takes the pain away
Don’t get caught up in the fact that things ain’t the same
Or the dreams you had yesterday ain’t in range
The only constant in life is that things change
So if you’re here to play game then you can’t complain
I play the game to win it, I love the competition
I want the pole position
I want to know my limits
It makes me dig deep and pushes me to the limit
I know exactly where I stand when it’s all finished
At the top of mountain, satisfied
In disbelief when I’m looking back at my climb
The moments in doubt but still carried out my mission
Got out my feelings
Had to go and get it, get up

You need to get (get up) up right now and (right now)
You need to get (get up) up right now and (right now)
You need to get (get up) up right now and (right now)
You need to get (get up) up right now and
