When the man's
Got ya down
Ain't no love
To be found

(Keep pushin' keep pushin'
Keep pushin' keep pushin'...)

When the sky
Fallin' in
Feel like
You'll never win

Keep pushin' keep pushin'
Keep pushin' keep pushin'...)

When ya try
To get ahead
But ya fall
Back instead

Keep pushin' keep pushin'
Keep pushin' keep pushin'...)

When the lies
Outweigh the truth
Feel like nothing
You can do

Keep pushin' keep pushin'
Keep pushin' keep pushin'...)

I have lived among the non-believers
They'll tell ya that it can't be done
The fool will have you second guess the dreamer
But I'd rather be the one that tried
So I'm just gon' keep on...

When the world's
Cavin' in
You can barely
Find a friend

Keep pushin' keep pushin'
Keep pushin' keep pushin'...)

When they say
Go away
We don't need
No one like you

Keep pushin' keep pushin'
Keep pushin' keep pushin'...)

When ya hangin'
By a thread
Dig your heels
In instead

Keep pushin' keep pushin'
Keep pushin' keep pushin'...)

I have lived among the non-believers
They'll tell ya that it can't be done
The fool will have you second guess the dreamer
But I'd rather be the one that tried
So I'm just gon' keep on...

People wanna know
Why I'm so persistent
Swim against the tide
Resisting the system
Don't I wanna be ridin' the charts
All she gotta do is forget about art

Shakin' their fingers but I'm holdin' steady
Goin' bout my bi'ness I'll wait till they're ready
Keeping my truth in whatever I do
Makin' sure the light inside of me
Still shines thru
