Lyfe, it can shake ya, it could make ya
It can bring ya to the brink of
Lyfe, it will shake ya, it could make ya
It could bring ya to the brink

But Im learning to time myself
Turn it easy over
Put some spice back on the shelf

Like elevator buttons go on and on
And doors that open and shut
Without a cause

There's something greater than I dare to know
Look at me, pull the thread on this sweater
And watch it go
(What does it mean?)

Lyfe, it can shake ya, it can make ya
It can bring ya to the brink of
Lyfe, it will shake ya, it could make ya
It could bring ya to the brink

The struggle, hard and deep
Of what I learn to keep
Along the way, everyday

Little one, I take your hand
And wonder, how Im gonna help ya be a man
And how Ill help ya understand
(What does it mean?)

Lyfe, it can shake ya, it could make ya
It can bring ya to the brink of
Lyfe, it will shake ya, it could make ya
It could bring ya to the brink of lyfe

Two steps forward and one step back
Cover my mouth, choke
And pull down my hat

Into the seamless hope
Of an endless drive
Clinging to the rhythm of a lyfe like stride

Whitewashing down trodden people
They're displayed like a grand masquerade
Making us feel better, that we are brave

Like letters that fade into dust
Like harmony, kindness and trust
Wisdom eluding me, wise guys using me
Peace, peace in, peace out
That's right, what's it all about? Huh?
(What does it mean?)

Lyfe, it can shake ya, it can make ya
It can bring ya to the brink of
Lyfe, it will shake ya, it could make ya
It could bring ya to the brink of

Lyfe, it will shake ya, it can make ya
It can bring ya to the brink of
Lyfe, it will shake ya, it could make ya
It could bring ya to the brink

Lyfe, along the way, everyday
Lyfe, along the way, everyday
(What does it mean?)
