Fingers are itchin’ for a fight
Like a work man hanging from his neck tie
Work through the day but in the night
No, you can’t sleep
You comb your mind for the reasons why

Why you were once so complacent
But now your wheels hit the pavement

We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Put in our time
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)

You’re a deep man but the money’s paper thin
Cashing a cheque like a cut on the skin
You need a change, where to begin
Well you got an empty head
So there’s room for something moving in

All the time you were wasting
Now your wheels hit the pavement

We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Put in our time
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Oh, this world we live in, go broke or give in
We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)

It’s like we’re waisting away
Just for a little bit of pay

If we never find a way to grow
Drink the well until it’s dry, oh my
And If we can’t define the line between right and wrong
We’ll be living bottom barrell till we reach our dying day
Ok, alright
Right, right

We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Put in our time
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
Oh, this world we live in, go broke or give in
We earn our stripes
(Day and night, day and night, day and night)
