lyrics

Sprouted in the tummy of a broken in Mommy
Met the world on the coldest days.
Stepped into the best shoes
In the easiest of ways.

Following the yellow till they brought that little fellow
To the house they called their own.
With tears in their eyes and their little sunshine
They loved him till the break of dawn.

And in the pleasant little land of the privileged fam
They worked their asses off.
Making the life that their country boasts
Opportunity builds the walls.

Learning when you’re growing that you’re not the only person
That can take all that you want.
You gotta leave time for compromise so we can
All keep rolling on.

And oh
It’s how it goes
We all come into this world on different roads.
And oh
It’s how it goes
The past you hold is just as wealthy as a bar of gold
You gotta work
You gotta work
You gotta work to find your way.

Looking past people is the real root of evil
Cause they make the world that we see.
We got homeless people dying
But I’d rather watch bravo TV.

We’ll never stick together if we’re balancing on a feather
Or unite on the count of three
And it takes more than one person
For all the people to see.

And oh
It’s how it goes
We all come into this world on different roads.
And oh
It’s how it goes
The past you hold is just as wealthy as a bar of gold
You gotta work
You gotta work
You gotta work to find your way.

You gotta work to find your way.
If the sun ain’t shining and the rain is falling and
All you want to do is tuck away.

Daddy aint paying for your new car today.
You gotta work work work
