Lyrics:
Punching the sky every day

Rise when the alarm abruptly sounds
Hope that opportunity knocks
Nemesis sow seeds of doubt
Leaves me feeling shell-shocked
Confident I think I got it all figured out
With help from osmosis
Sift through the crap hit the safety valve
Then put on Aegis

Scream race from the inferno
Turn left turn right go straight
Which way do I go

As I grow older I lift this boulder
With strength I chip it away
Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
Punching the sky everyday
As life gets colder flames they smolder
Climb so I can survey
Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
Punching the sky everyday

Nectar of the Gods taste bittersweet
Not out of the mire yet
Got to be a badass to take the heat
Not be saddled with mounting debt (forget)
Wolf appears with a nice wool coat
Draws me in with a smile
Rid myself of this spare change
And that’s how I reconcile

Scream race from the inferno
Turn left turn right go straight
Which way do I go (I know)

As I grow older I lift this boulder
With strength I chip it away
Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
Punching the sky everyday
As life gets colder flames they smolder
Climb so I can survey
Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
Punching the sky everyday

All these birds
Are coming home to roost
To fly in my face
Or to maybe give me a boost
Measure the man the amount of grit
Every ounce or send me adrift

Ain’t no thorn in my side
I cannot expel
Juggernaut of a stone moves well
Cause I know

As I grow older I lift this boulder
With strength I chip it away
Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
Punching the sky everyday
As life gets colder flames they smolder
Climb so I can survey
Standing on the Shoulders of Giants
Punching the sky everyday

Punch away
