One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down 'cause it's nothing to me
Everyone's saying that it's wrong to cheat
But there's no other way to get my life on easy street

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down now you're looking for more
Then the only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war

Rich man crying 'cause his money is time
Poor man smiling 'cause he knows he ain't blind
There's a man over there says he's tougher than me
But I got eyes that can see through fantasy

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Take it all back 'cause it don't mean nothing
If you give it away and you're looking for something back
You wake up every morning and there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

Someone else telling you what your living for
Been knocking you down now your looking for more
Then the only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but their bringing you war

We got one life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down 'cause its nothing to me
Rich man crying crying 'cause his money is time
Poor man smiling 'cause he knows he ain't blind

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see

We're doing it wrong you see
We're doing it wrong you see
We're doing it wrong you see

I say we're doing it wrong
I say we're doing it wrong
I say we're doing it wrong
