(j.p. maunick)

In the early morning light you step into the cold
Your curses freeze mid air, the bus is late
You've got to get to work on time, your job is on the line
Soon you'll start again, the same routine

Deep inside your mind, the dreamers dream you'll find
As the day is long, it keeps you moving on
Trying to stay ahead as best you can

Sweep away the notion of a revolution
Do it for yourself

Chorus:
(there's no stoppin')
(living against the river)
Do what you do what you do
(got to keep pushing)
(when you're living against the river)
Do what you do what you do

As the light begins to fade and you're heading back for home
Your head is hanging low, you're feeling blue
From the corner of your eyes, under neon lights you see
The old man in the snow with worn out shoes

Sweep away the notion of a revolution
Do it for yourself

Chorus

Repeat (fade)
