Is there something more, I just can't see?
I've been so busy trying everyday to make ends meet
Been such a long time
Now I wonder, can I tell the forest from the trees?

I know that I feel pride and I know that I fear shame
I know I want you to smile when you hear my name
Seems like a silly game
But I know I play it harder than anything

I feel alone, there's people everywhere
Once in a while you find someone who really cares
But I'm too busy to give them what they need
It's not greed, it's the fear of failure, it keeps me going

But when tomorrow comes there's always something more
And I can't stop working long enough to wonder
What life's for, what is it for?
Am I just a whore? Who am I working for?

I know that I feel pride and I know that I fear shame
I know I want you to smile when you hear my name
Seems like a silly game
But I know I play it harder than anything
