Playing the game
With the chips on my shoulder
Checking in the mirror
As my coffee cup gets colder

Stagger and swagger
Combing my hair
If tomorrow's not there
Then at least today's all mine

While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive

Strutting my stuff
I'm blagging the damage
From coupling with headlines
I was suckled on salvage

The fighting's exciting
The age is dramatic
I'm crackling with static
Just jiving to survive

While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive

Take a stroll down the side roads
I know you want to
A shock in the dark
Can be good for your heart, oh yeah

While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive

Scuffling along
On the crest of a wave
Laughing and grafting
Or jerking and working

Striking a match
Where life is a gas
I need the flash
To make it all worthwhile

While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive
While I'm still alive
