Dinosaur Pile-Up - Back Foot

Tekst piosenki:


Mama always told me, "Be a man"
That I should get my shit together for it while I can
Like yeah, whatever, I said "Mama, you don't understand"
"'Cause I'm gon' be stupid famous and rocking in a band"
Yeah, you know
Couple years later, here I am
I'm living the big city life, just doing what I can
To get by waiting tables, yeah, I'm working for the man
And you know, lately, it's starting to feel awful like

I'm always on the back foot
Yeah, I'm always on the back foot, yeah
I'm always on the, woo (Yeah)
It's like I'm always on the back foot, yeah

Everybody says that I'm a slob (Slob)
That I'm a waste of space and super lazy, oh my God
Like yeah, whatever, I'll be right here sleeping on the job
Getting paid £6.80 to wait on tables of rich ladies and their dogs
I wish that I had more than I got
I wish I was on Conan and was rolling at the top
I wish I was a billionaire and balling like The Rock
But you know, lately, it's starting to feel awful like

I'm always on the back foot
Yeah, I'm always on the back foot, yeah
I'm always on the, woo (Yeah)
It's like I'm always on the back foot, yeah

Now that you know me
Yeah, back foot, I'm always on the back foot, yeah
Now that you know me, yeah

You know, people always hating what I got
They talking shit about me 'cause I'm wicked and they not
Like yeah, whatever, all you jealous bitches know you want
A piece of my sickness, my precious business, my vision
Commitment, sheer perseverance
My feeling, my rhythm, my talent and what?
(Uh-huh, uh-huh)
I'm gonna go ahead and tell you what
I'm gonna do exactly whatever the fuck I want
I'm gonna keep on doing it till I get to the top
'Cause you know, I guess I'm getting used to feeling like

I'm always on the back foot
Yeah, I'm always on the back foot, yeah
I'm always on the, woo
It's like I'm always on the back foot, yeah
Oh, I'm always on the back foot
I'm always on the back foot
Yeah, I'm always on the back foot
Yeah, I'm always on the back foot, yeah
