Ive been working for so damn long
Im trying to do right
Because i dont want to be wrong
Who are you to judge
You aint from where im from
And how you gone look down
When you aint done what i done
Look i am me until i r.i.p
You can never be fly as me
Look im working
Until i get to the top
And im going to until
The day my heart stop
Ive been working steady grinding
Damn there all my life
Ive been hustling trying to feed my children
Everyday and night
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time
Wake up in the morning
Seeing my kids is what keeps me going
I just want to make them proud
In my house no quest allowed
Im just working taking care of my children
They say daddy i love you
And i love to say i love you too
While taking care of my girl
With all weve been through
I know shes always down
When it comes around
To me being the man of my house
Its what im about just working it out
Until the day that im out
Give them haters a shout
Ive been working steady grinding
Damn there all my life
Ive been hustling trying to feed my children
Everyday and night
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time
Im out here working trying to be a good man
If i dont then tell me who can
Everyday a new bill in my hand
Im just trying to think of a better plan
Everyday as i feed my children
And take care of my girl
Regardless of who hate me
Its us against the world
Ive been working steady grinding
Damn there all my life
Ive been hustling trying to feed my children
Everyday and night
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time
Got to take it one day at a time

Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Midnight
Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
