They say I'm flesh and blood on the inside
guts and bones
but i feel I'm steel
They say my mind is mush on the inside
broken plans
and bad ideas

Oh but I feel there's so much more than that
i'm not a chemical in a vat
to test and use
My mind is calling to a higher path
a journey that occurred to me
isn't mine to choose

And everyday I learn there's someone
new who wants another piece of me
And everywhere I turn there's someone
new who wants some of my time
And everywhere I go there's someone
new who wants to take a shot at me
And everytime I slip that's another trick
that I gotta learn

Even though I've cut my teeth in the trenches
I stood in line
I've paid my dues
I can't say I'm workin much on my pension
But I've done my time
and I've read the news
and you know how they go

But oh Lord I ain't been given time enough
To suffer for the things I want
that I don't have
Yeah I know there's deeper meaning
to my life
then to die on someone's production line
A troubled man

And everyday I learn there's someone
new who wants another piece of me
And everywhere I turn there's someone
new who wants some of my time
And everywhere I go there's someone
new who wants to take a shot at me
And everytime I slip that's another trick
that I gotta learn

Uh huh
Oh yeah
Oh no
Uh huh
Oh yeah
So much more that I gotta learn...

And everyday I learn there's someone
new who wants another piece of me
And everywhere I turn there's someone
new who wants some of my time
And everywhere I go there's someone
new who wants to take a shot at me
And everytime I slip that's another trick
that I gotta learn

Whoah oh
Whoah oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
