Drivin through a town, the other day.
I watched a man get off the train.
Sun just come up and it's beatin down.
Gonna be another hot one, in this God forsaken town.

As he walked on, this is what I saw.
I saw an old man. Who, never lived at all.
He did the same thing every single day.
Woke up every morning to get on that train.

Because he's working, he's working for the man.
Is this what I am?
Is this what I am?

Everybody wonders, what they're gonna be.
As we grow older, we lose our dreams.
Everybody asks me - why still try?
It's a matter of do i live or die, live or die?

While I'm working, working for the man.
Is this what I am?
Is this what I am?

Gotta set your sails for freedom.
You gotta do what you love.
Only get one chance to do this.
So find your love.
Find your love.
While you're working, working for the man.
Do you understand?
This is what I am.....
