Will they ever stop driving me?
Have they ever taken time to see
That I need some rest if I'm to do my best?
Can I please stop working so hard?
They just tell me gotta close it hard.
Got to think of my health.
Can I be myself?

Oh, tell me I'll be home some day,
Well I doubt it if I continue this way,
Cause this hard life I've led is making me dead.

    General CommentThe song was written along with material for the "Stand Up" album, and I believe it was a B-side to either "Living in the Past" or "Sweet Dream." It can now be found on the bonus-track version of "Stand Up."

    The song is Ian's commentary on the constant turing the band did early in it's career. Ian referring to the possibility of his health failing would become somewhat prophetic when Ian's voice started to fail in the mid-80's.
