Watch it
Watch it
Watch it
Go

Always gotta be one step ahead
You know where you're lying
When you make your own bed
You'll never end up in the red
So watch your step, one step ahead

Energy up
Bring the energy up
On the double

Steppin' on toes is a common routine
Sneakin' up from behind
You won't get anywhere
Dancin' out of time

If you're living up to expectations
You may as well be dead
Gotta go for it, gotta go for it
Always gotta be one step ahead, so

Don't calm down, bring the energy up
Don't depend on lady luck
Can't walk, you just run instead
If you want to be one step ahead

Look over your shoulder
And predict what's to come
You're not feeling life if you're simply numb
So don't be dumb, grab the brass ring

You really can't depend on anything
Gotta make it happen all by yourself
Why rely on anyone else? So

Don't calm down, bring the energy up
Don't depend on lady luck
Can't walk, you just run instead
If you want to be one step ahead

Don't calm down, bring the energy up

Don't depend on lady luck
Can't walk, why not run instead?
If you wanna be one step, one step ahead

This dream is holding me tight
Keeping me up all night, oh
It's not out of reach, just out of sight
Do you think I'll get it?
Think I may, say I might, oh

This dream is holding me tight
Keeping me tossing and turning
It's not out of reach, just out of sight
Do you think I'll get it?
With the way I'm burning
I just might

It's time to rap, huh

Always gotta be one step ahead
You know where you're lying
When you make your own bed
You'll never end up in the red
So watch it

Don't calm down, bring the energy up
You gotta go for it, go for it, go for it
Don't calm down, bring the energy up
You gotta go for it, go for it, go for it

Don't calm down, bring the energy up
(You gotta go for it, go for it, go for it)
Are you listenin'?
Don't calm down, bring the energy up
(You gotta go for it, go for it, go for it)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Don't calm down, bring the energy up
Don't depend on lady luck
Can't walk, gonna run instead
If you want to be one step ahead
(I know you do, huh)

(Don't calm down, bring the energy up)
You gotta be one step ahead,
If you know what's good for you
If you know what's good for you

(Don't calm down, bring the energy up)
Don't, no, why rely on lady luck?
Don't calm down, bring the energy up
