Motive and method

So
they tell you things are just so so and then you wonder,
why you don’t give up and let yourself go under, but you
know that’s not the way
we’ve got to live and fight for each day

and when you’re dragging it out at the bottom
of the rockpile
you gotta realise that very soon in a short while
the tables will be turned
the bridges don’t have to burn,

they’ll still tell you what they want to
there’s no need to believe it,
you’re on the ladder up and
you know you can make it,
so
take a tip from me
believe in yourself and see.
