I Need It Now - Lyrics

I want a chance at the title
I want a shot at the prize
I've had enough of routines
I see right through your memes
And schemes and video lies, yeah
I got to bring home the bacon
There's people counting on me
Won't stand for wheelin' and dealin'
Your hands on healing or astrology

I've paid for my mistakes
I've had the bends, the breaks
I've put my back to the plow
I just want a piece
A little taste at least
Don't care why or how
Oh, I need it now

I'm tired of paying the piper
With hopes I can't entertain
I've got to make my mark
Before I jump that shark
And miss the gravy train
Nobody aims for the middle
We got to swing for the fence
Or else the balance of years
The blood, sweat and tears
Are of no consequence

I've paid for my mistakes
I've had the bends, the breaks
I've put my back to the plow
I just want a piece
A little taste at least
Don't care why or how
Oh, I need it now

Now I'm down so low
That I can't see the ground
And I can feel somebody watching
Like a hunter in the blind
Can I pick myself up one more time
And blow this dust off?

I've paid for my mistakes
I've had the bends, the breaks
I've put my back to the plow
I just want a piece
A little taste at least
Don't care why or how
Oh, I need it now

Take it by love or theft
Before there's nothing left
Selling it by the pound
I need a nouveau riche
The dog is off the leash
And time is winding down
Oh, I need it now
