Times Is Tryin' Lyrics

Times Is Tryin' by Scribe  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Times Is Tryin' That's right all it takes is one take
Times is tryin', I ain't lyin'
Just survivin', 9 to 5 in'
But still keepin' it livin'
It's the V. Check it.

I'm an upstanding citizen, not a ne'erdowell
So here's my story, you might find it parallel
I have hard times holding down one job
And when I've gotten laid off it's a wake-up call
No more retirement or benefits
My money's running out. Should I spend it quick?
Before I have to scratch & claw to keep my head above water,
And not be in the red, nuff said.
I graduated college and got that degree
Thought everything was rosy - Smellin' so sweet
But the work-a-day world is filled with obstacles
How the hell can I do the impossible?
And that's reason to get downsized
Cuz I work as a temp with no piece of the pie
I hold my head high cuz I live my life right
You can say "church" but I must testify

The V ain't lyin', times is tryin'
Tests the mettle of the truth inside men
Sometimes your best effort ain't good enough
I love my life, but now and then it gets rough

The V ain't lyin', times is tryin'
Tests the mettle of the truth inside men
What brings out the worst in mankind?
Is when the path to success is filled with landmines

How you gonna tell me that I have to earn a lower wage for the same work I
Was doin' yesterday
How you gonna tell me that I can stay a couple days longer as long as I
Train my replacement
How you gonna tell me I don't get the job when I never got the chance to
Show my skills
How you gonna tell me to care about my work on Monday when my last day is
Friday
You mean to tell me to not cause a scene and look orderly
You need some visine
I think the lack of care you show toward your employees is gonna cause
Uprisings
It's not suprising the economy sucks
The poor stay poor and the rich get richer.
The V's been on both sides of the struggle. So take it from me, I know the
Big picture.

The V ain't lyin', times is tryin'
Tests the mettle of the truth inside men
Sometimes your best effort ain't good enough
I love my life, but now and then it gets rough

The V ain't lyin', times is tryin'
Tests the mettle of the truth inside men
What brings out the worst in mankind?
Is when the path to success is filled with landmines

Yeah, yeah
Times is tryin'
Just survivin'
9 to 5in'
Doin my thing
Yeah, I gotta do whatever it takes for the V to get by
And that ain't cool
It's gettin' real old
Man, just gotta keep goin'
So put faith in God and yourself
The V
