Life sucks then you die
Thanks dad for the advice
You aim low, you get by
You won't win so don't try

The beating of a lifetime is taking its toll tonight
One by one my fingers give it back
The grip they thought they had
One by one my fears evaporate
I'll find the strength to say
Enough is enough

I don't mind being stuck
Down here in this rut
Honestly it is just
This routine I'm afraid of

The beating of a lifetime is taking its toll tonight
One by one my fingers give it back
The grip they thought they had
One by one my fears evaporate
I'll find the strength to say
Enough is enough
Enough is enough

What good is bars of gold
When the world comes to an end
Maybe we could use them to smash our brains in
What good is this heart and soul
When the mind and the body have lost all hope

The beating of a lifetime is taking its toll tonight
The beating of a lifetime
One by one my fingers give it back
The grip they thought they had
One by one my fears evaporate
I'll find the strength to say
Enough is enough
Enough is enough
Enough is enough
Enough is enough

I've got it all
