about

This song is an ode to me leaving my desk job of 10 years to travel around Europe for four months.

lyrics

For a little more money
A lot more stress
I could leave all of this
Maybe its for the best
Choose plan B
I swore I would never do
But I'm at the age
Where I'm pressured to
I'm supposed to provide
Not on the side
My passion is past its prime
Its a crime
To feel I've wasted my time
Make up my mind
If I compromise
I abandon my heart

Put me on the table
Operate on me
Spill my blood
This cannot be

I'm my own boss
I won't give in
I'm my own boss
I won't give in
I'm my own boss
I won't give in
I'm my own boss
I won't give in

God knows the toll
Taken on my soul
If I'd thrown away
My Silvertone and microphone
My personality
Would surely show
It doesn't take much
To become a drone
I'm not gonna cut my
Air supply
In favor of
Polka dot ties
I'm not gonna be a
Cog in the machine
In favor of
Someone else's dream

Put me on the table
Operate on me
Spill my blood
This cannot be

I'm my own boss
I won't give in
I'm my own boss
I won't give in
I'm my own boss
I won't give in
I'm my own boss
I won't give in
(Boss)
I won't give in
(Boss)
I won't give in
(Boss)
I won't give in
(Boss)
I won't give in
