Story Behind the Song

A song about embracing work, determination and never giving up.

Lyrics

Every day I punch the clock
though it might not mean a lot
every day I'm pushing through

'Cause I got places I must be
This is not my destiny
so I just keep on pushing through

Some might say that I'm in need
bills to pay and mouths to feed
I'll give 'em that, I'll say it's true

But they can't see these dreams at night
Swirling round inside my mind
and that's what keeps me pushing though

Oh...
I'm thankful for the work I get
and even though I'm not there yet
I'm getting closer

Oh...
No it's not about the bottom line
It gives a meaning to my life
and gets me where I'm goin'

Slavin' all the way till three
it's just my machine and me
doin' what we have to do

This is just a stop I made
till I reach the grand parade
until then I'm pushing through

Oooh
oooh...

Oh...
No it's not about the bottom line
It gives a meaning to my life
and gets me where I'm goin'

Every day I punch the clock
though it might not mean a lot
this is what I chose to do

'Cause I got places I must be
This is not my destiny
so I just keep on pushing through
Yea I just keep on pushing through
Yea I just keep on pushing...
through

Whoa...
Pushing through
Yea...
Whoa...
Pushing through
