I take time thinking about the moves I'm gonna have to make
I take time thinking about the rules I'm gonna have to break
It's always push and shoving
Sometimes it comes to nothing
Sometimes it's more than a mere mortal man can take

I'm up for it
I'm up for it
I'm up for it
I'm up for it

The day to day can become such a trip
The mediocre can make you lose your grip
It's all on you and what you've got
You can play it cool or make it hot
I pay the price and take my shot

Stay up for it
I'm up for it
I'm up for it
I'm up for it

Burning out, wearing thin
Can't believe the shape you're in
There's always somebody who's gonna try to make it worse
There's always a line to stand in
As long as I'm still standing
You best believe I'm gonna make other plans

Stay up for it
Stay up for it
Stay up for it
Up for it, up for it
I am up for it man

Time, time, stop wasting mine, mine
Don't stand their crying, crying
Just make up your mind
Time, time, stop wasting mine, mine
Don't stand their crying, crying
Just make up your mind

Stay up for it
Stay up for it
Stay up for it
Stay up for it man

I take time thinking about what I'm gonna have to do
What it takes, how it is and when I'm gonna light the fuse
All this push and shoving in the end all amounts to nothing
I'll never get a second chance looking me in the face

I'm up for it
I'm up for it
I stay up for it
I stay up for it

The day to day can become such a grind
The mediocre can make you lose your mind
It's all on you and what you've got
You can play it cool or make it hot
I pay the price and take my shot

Stay up for it
I'm up for it
I'm up for it
I'm up for it

? or now in future shock
By the numbers ? ? stop
There's always somebodys who's gonna try to take your brain
As long as they're selling something
I'll be smelling something
I've seen them come and go so many times

I'm up for it
I stay up for it
I stay up for it
I stay up for it
Now what else are you gonna do?
