Every day I'm a slave to the grind
Think I'm loosing my mind
9 to 5 ain't mu kind of routine
Ain't nobody's machine
Boss says: think of the future
But what about today?
'Cos if I die tomorrow
There ain't no time to waste

I'm leaving
I'm doing my own thing
I'll do it...on my own

Wanna feel I'm alive, I'm a man
Gonna do all I can
Gonna try til I get what I need
Never give ups my creed
Make up your mind and do it
And feel you're wild at heart
Life is to short to worry
You've got to make a start

Up from zero - to where I wanna be
No one's hero - I do it just for me
Up from zero - it may be hard to do
No one's hero - but you can make it too

Outta work, outta cash, outta booze
But I won't sing no blues
Gonna play, gonna will, wanna bet?
Don't you think I'm done yet
When bad luck gets me down, hey
I'll just get up again
No room for desperation
'Cos I like happy ends

I'll rise up
Show you what I can take
I'll make it...check it out

Doesn't help to complain about your fate
Cos there ain't no escape
What you do is you put up a fight
Get a grip, set things right
When she starts getting nasty
Look fortune in the eye
She will smile down upon you
If you just really try

Up from zero - to where I wanna be
No one's hero - I do it just for me
Up from zero - it may be hard to do
No one's hero - but you can make it too

Every day I'm a slave to the grind
Think I'm loosing my mind
9 to 5 ain't mu kind of routine
Ain't nobody's machine
Boss says: think of the future
But what about today?
'Cos if I die tomorrow
There ain't no time to waste

I'm leaving
I'm doing my own thing
I'll do it...on my own

Wanna feel I'm alive, I'm a man
Gonna do all I can
Gonna try til I get what I need
Never give ups my creed
Make up your mind and do it
And feel you're wild at heart
Life is to short to worry
You've got to make a start

Up from zero - to where I wanna be
No one's hero - I do it just for me
Up from zero - it may be hard to do
No one's hero - but you can make it too
