"The Squeeze" as written by and Gary Nicholson Delbert Mclinton....
OH!

Sometimes it feels like the juice is,
Just one hell of a squeeze,
I'm wringing it out my hands,
Drinking in my agony,

I love this shit and I hate this shit,
I need it just to survive,
I've served my time, I've earned my key,
And now I'm taking what's mine,

And only I can stop me,

So what is it that you're fighting for?
Is it something that's worth dying for?
Look me in the eyes, don't tell me,
Is it in your heart, what you're striving for?
A painful lesson learned is worth so much more (so much more),
Can you open up your eyes and see?

All our lives we ask ourselves,
Is this really what's meant for us?
Take a close hard look at yourself,
It takes heart to face your reality,

I can't, I cannot give two shits,
About your self doubt,
When it's time to rise, I won't sell myself, I won't sell myself out,
I won't sell myself out,

So what is it that you're fighting for?
Is it something that's worth dying for?
Look me in the eyes, don't tell me,
Is it in your heart, what you're striving for?
A painful lesson learned is worth so much more (so much more),
Can you open up your eyes and see?

Every doubt falls away,
Like pages in the good book, like an autumn leafs decay,
Every doubt falls away,
Like sand in an hourglass, the end of a perfect day,

Every doubt falls away,
Like pages in the good book, like an autumn leafs decay,
Every doubt falls away,
Like sand in an hourglass,

So what is it that you're fighting for?
Is it something that's worth dying for?
Look me in the eyes, don't tell me,
Is it in your heart, what you're striving for?
A painful lesson learned is worth so much more,
Can you open up your eyes and see?
