Tankard - Up From Zero Lyrics




Every day I'm a slave to the grind
Think I'm losing my mind
9 to 5 ain't mu kind of routine
Ain't nobody's machine
Boss says: think of the future
But what about today?
'Cause if I die tomorrow
There ain't no time to waste

I'm leaving
I'm doing my own thing
I'll do it... on my own

Wanna feel I'm alive, I'm a man
Gonna do all I can
Gonna try till I get what I need
Never give ups my creed
Make up your mind and do it
And feel you're wild at heart
Life is to short to worry
You've got to make a start

Up from zero - to where I wanna be
No one's hero - I do it just for me
Up from zero - it may be hard to do
No one's hero - but you can make it too

Outta work, outta cash, outta booze
But I won't sing no blues
Gonna play, gonna will, wanna bet?
Don't you think I'm done yet
When bad luck gets me down, hey
I'll just get up again
No room for desperation
'Cause I like happy ends

I'll rise up
Show you what I can take
I'll make it... check it out

Doesn't help to complain about your fate
'Cause there ain't no escape
What you do is you put up a fight
Get a grip, set things right
When she starts getting nasty
Look fortune in the eye
She will smile down upon you
If you just really try

Up from zero - to where I wanna be
No one's hero - I do it just for me
Up from zero - it may be hard to do
No one's hero - but you can make it too

Every day I'm a slave to the grind
Think I'm losing my mind
9 to 5 ain't mu kind of routine
Ain't nobody's machine
Boss says: think of the future
But what about today?
'Cause if I die tomorrow
There ain't no time to waste

I'm leaving
I'm doing my own thing
I'll do it... on my own

Wanna feel I'm alive, I'm a man
Gonna do all I can
Gonna try till I get what I need
Never give ups my creed
Make up your mind and do it
And feel you're wild at heart
Life is to short to worry
You've got to make a start

Up from zero - to where I wanna be
No one's hero - I do it just for me
Up from zero - it may be hard to do
No one's hero - but you can make it too

    @Toxic-Vermin Germany, if you asked me what German band I would say- Dust Bolt. Never said America was better don't put words in my mouth , I said Tankard was never big in the States and that is true..

    Toxik-Vermin

    Yea i know but thats the thing you said its not big in the states thats why it isnt good and that was a shit statement. Couse ya made it look like if US would be the whole world.

    Dark Coven

    @Toxic-Vermin The guy said they are one of the top Thrash bands, I said they are not big here in the States that does not mean I was being a jerk or downing any other country, and to me they don't sound real good, but that is only my opinion..
