Oh, you gotta keep on keeping on
Even with the feeling that you're gonna keep losing
Oh, you gotta come back strong
Oh oh
[x2]

He spent most of his youth with his head down
Chubby, fugly, awkward walk and not much of a talker
He was good at setting bad examples but bad at math, crunch time
He kept it moving like the lunch line
Working on his salad bars and fruit punch lines
His simple triplets had his English teachers tongue tied
As he starts pirouette for perfection
And Darren Aronofsky black swan refection

He plucked feathers from his back
And watched his bottom limbs, bend forward
Toward something more, he wasn't sure
He plucked feathers from his back
And watched his bottom limbs, bend forward
Toward something more, toward something more

Oh, you gotta keep on keeping on
Even with the feeling that you're gonna keep losing
Oh, you gotta come back strong
Oh oh
[x2]

Raised in a broken home built brick by government cheese brick
Back and forth between parents making us sea sick
On his knees every night praying for a little change
But the tooth fairy was broke and offered little hope
He used to stand in front of mirrors with his toothbrush star searching
But he ain't have to search far
He was smart and made a pact with himself
With a smirk and made a vow that one day
His dad would never ever have to worry

He plucked feathers from his back
And watched his bottom limbs, bend forward
Toward something more, he wasn't sure
He plucked feathers from his back
And watched his bottom limbs, bend forward
Toward something more, toward something more

Oh, you gotta keep on keeping on
Even with the feeling that you're gonna keep losing
Oh, you gotta come back strong
Oh oh
[x2]

Fast forward a few 24 hours
Little boy turned man makes good on his promise
Just to say we didn't take the trips to the Bahamas
Now you're boy bank account got a few more commas...
The hard work paid off, don't it?
Plus it feel good when you can say you own it
No rent, lease, loan or a mortgage
That generator money, no shortage

He plucked feathers from his back
And watched his bottom limbs, bend forward
Toward something more, he wasn't sure
He plucked feathers from his back
And watched his bottom limbs, bend forward
Toward something more, toward something more

Oh, you gotta keep on keeping on
Even with the feeling that you're gonna keep losing
Oh, you gotta come back strong
Oh oh
[x4]
