While the years are still on my side,
My back is strong, my eyes are wide.
I want the work I do to be a bigger point of pride.

Grow up, get a job, and cut that hair.
Run off, join the army for all they care,
Or bring a blanket; it gets awfully cold
When you can't afford the heat and you're sleepin' alone.

Love living life from couch to couch;
Thought myself content living hand to mouth.
But when everything you own fits in a single bag,
No matter how light the load, it tends to drag.

While the years are still on my side,
My back is strong, my eyes are wide.
I want the work I do to be a bigger point of pride.

Momma said there'd be days like this
But she's been too late too much this year.
(Momma said, Momma said)
Waking up when I was going to sleep before;
Bars are closing, I'm already out the door.
No semblance of stability
On old runner's legs in doubt.
I still even have the ability
To run this race without
My sacrifice... Recognize...

While the years are still on my side,
My back is strong, my eyes are wide.
I want the work I do to be a bigger point of pride.

While the years are still on my side,
My back is strong, my eyes are wide.
I want the work I do to be a bigger point of pride.

I make junk mail for The Man
Soon I'll be inking up your hands
While you toss away my work
Machines whir and I make plans
I make junk mail for The Man
I've been inking up your hands
While your sacrifice goes unrecognized...


While the years are still on my side,
My back is strong, my eyes are wide.
I want the work I do to be a bigger point of pride.

While the years are still on my side,
My back is strong, my eyes are wide.
I want the work I do to be a bigger point of pride.
I want the work I do to be a bigger point of pride.
I want the work I do to be a bigger point of pride.
