Listen to this

I found myself with no one I could turn to
The situation went from bad to worse
While I was out there taking care of business
Oh, I was moving forward in reverse

I started out with every good intention
I wanted just to get back on my feet
The enemy will soon be gunning
(Gunning)
It won't be long before I'm running
And I'll be calling for the fleet
(Oh, help me)

I'm gonna move to the light
Gonna stand up and fight
I'm gonna show I was wrong
I'm gonna win back the right
Oh, it wasn't for the wont of trying
That I turned to the other side
One for the money

I never made enough for what I needed
I thought that I could find an easy way
But I was wrong and now I'm running
(Running)
It won't be long, and they'll be gunning for me
And everybody's closing in on me

I'm gonna move to the light
Gonna stand up and fight
I'm gonna show I was wrong
Gonna win back the right
Oh, it wasn't for the wont of trying
That I turned to the other side
One for the money

I'm gonna move to the light
Gonna stand up and fight
I'm gonna show I was wrong
Gonna win back the right
Oh, it wasn't for the wont of trying
That I turned to the other side
One for the money

One for the money, one for the money
One for the money, one for the money
One for the money, one for the money
One for the money, one for the money
One for the money, one for the money
