lyrics

Pushing shit uphill would be far
Easier than living life like this
You try your best to do your best and
Every hit you aim for is a miss
But where is it leading to?
What do they want you to do?

'Cos you try...

Okay, you aren't perfect but at
Least you make the effort you don't stop
And all around you charming smiles and
Greasy handshakes rise up to the top
But how did those people win
While you somehow got chucked in the bin?

'Cos you try...

Something just isn't right
'Cos everything has turned out shite

Pushing shit uphill would be far
Easier than living life like this
No matter what you do your name will
Always be on someone else's list

But you try...
