​Work Or Die

This song is by Trust and appears on the album Savage (1981).

I want to tell the story of four years of my life
It's kinda hard, many intense moments
The friends who leave behind and those who seek you out
Those who only come because of your advance
Those who scrutinize you when they find you're not a fake
Jealous little bastards help you make mistakes
The pleasure of the losers who run before they walk
While you're learning of the women and the way that money talks

Ask for your opinions, they couldn't care much less
People you could kick at like a dog out on the street
Only want to know you now you're the new big news
Critisize you 'cause you've got the guts to choose

Work or die
The life that I lead is not a dream
Work or die
Fighting an endless war it seems

Don't know what problems another day will bring
Plenty eager fat cats taking care of things
Haven't given in, haven't sold my mind
Mean to cause disturbance, leave the rest behind

Started out alone, no one to catch me when I fell
Thought I could speak out, I found myself in hell
They made their stupid comments, I just love the way they talk
They think they have the talent to tell me how to work

Want to know the reason, someone tell us why
They smile at us sweetly, then knife us in the back
In Trust I am the singer, believe me I have faith
In the strong determination that got us here today

Work or die
The life that I lead is not a dream
Work or die
Fighting an endless war it seems

They look, they analyze, they think they're really wise
My name is Bernie and that's fine by me
You find it hard to gag us, but you're free to try
Take it or leave it, we work or die

Work or die
The life that I lead is not a dream
Work or die
Fighting an endless war it seems
