LYRIC

Woah oh oh oh woah
I tip my head back, and I'm staring at the stars
Just pissing this night away
I've been praying for something to come down and save me
It's been a long one working for the man all day
It's been a long one dying just to get away


Well it's a roll of the dice
Your luck's finally run
You're picking your lucky numbers 'cause you're lucky number one
Digging into your pockets scrimping scraping every hole
For the things that you wanted
You're at the pump woah!
you belong to them in your own mind
you got to break your back to break even almost every time
Work days, week days, weak plays
Something's gotta change before you go insane


And you know,
(It's a big bad world)
This goes on and on and on and on you know
(It's a big bad world)
This goes on and on, the same old song you know
(It's a big bad world)
This goes on and on, and it's the same old song
There's nothing you can do,
But break your back in two
But you just can't quit


So you work, and you pay
And you break your back for another day,
In this big bad world, well it's a big bad world
And you work, and you pay
And you break your back for another day
In this big bad world, it's a big bad world


Well it's a toss up
All around the world a suit and tie pawn shop
It's a blue collar prop placed in regular sweat shops
It's a new game they play that goes around the whole clock
But what's the difference when you're running around and you're trying to get ahead STOP!
Twenty bucks at the pump, hey
Twenty bucks more the same day
Twenty bucks at the pump, hey
They got you going crazy
Welcome to the party break your back at the front door
Check your checks and call a party at the pump war


And you know,
(It's a big bad world)
This goes on and on and on and on you know
(It's a big bad world)
This goes on and on, the same old song you know
(It's a big bad world)
This goes on and on, and it's the same old song
There's nothing you can do,
But break your back in two
But you just can't quit


So you work, and you pay
And you break your back for another day,
In this big bad world, well it's a big bad world
And you work, and you pay
And you break your back for another day
In this big bad world, it's a big bad world


[Guitar solo]


So you work, and you pay
And you break your back for another day,
We're in this big bad world, well it's a big bad world
No more you work, no more pay
Don't wanna break my back for another day
In this big bad world, it's a big bad world


La de da, la da da de da
La de da, la da da de da
La de da, la da da de da


No more work, WORK!
No more play, PLAY!
Don't wanna break my back for one more day
In this big bad world, it's a big bad world
And we are waiting for that new day to come
