Stop living your life for the alarm
That wakes you up every day at eight
Leave your Peugeot on the forecourt
It's all too much for you to take

Your girlfriend don't love you but still she slaves
To make a home for you to stay
The people above you, they keep you held down
The [Incomprehensible], the [Incomprehensible] you'd love to make

Yeah, you're leaning on your fence when you told me
You were gonna make lots of money
Be a princess, diamonds and cigarettes
Rolling out the carpet to regrets

Now you're not so young, it's too easy
To be a dreamer, wake up and be free
Your clock is ticking fast, friend, believe me
You'll only get one chance, can you hear me?

It's not okay to be this way
Not okay to be a slave

Stop living your life for a man in a tie
He's just a fool, the same as you
His daughter don't love him but still he slaves
To make a way for her to choose

Her teenage dreams are here today
But in the morning they'll be gone
Washed away by the minimum wage
The same, the same as everyone

Yeah, you're leaning on your fence when you told me
You were gonna make lots of money
Be a princess, diamonds and cigarettes
Rolling out the carpet to regrets

Now you're not so young, it's too easy
To be a dreamer, wake up and be free
Your clock is ticking fast, friend believe me
You'll only get one chance, can you hear me?

It's not okay to be this way
Not okay to be a slave

Yeah, you're leaning on your fence when you told me
You were gonna make lots of money
Be a princess, diamonds and cigarettes
Rolling out the carpet to regrets

Now you're not so young, it's too easy
To be a dreamer, wake up and be free
Your clock is ticking fast, friend believe me
You'll only get one chance, can you hear me?

It's not okay to be this way
Not okay to be this way
Not okay to be this way
Not okay to be a slave
To be a slave, to be a slave
