I wrote this song based on my experience and journey as a marketing professional in New Zealand who quit my job and moved to the other side of the world to pursue music. I had this unsettled feeling in my stomach that sitting in an office 9-5 was not what I wanted to be doing. I wasn't unhappy, but I wasn't thrilled either. I realised that you only live once and you might as well be doing what brings you joy and purpose, not what society says you should do.

The song follows my realisation, the journey and the hustle I've had to learn along the way. I know I'm not alone with this feeling and that many people are on the same page. I want this song to give those people encouragement. It's a new year, a new decade and it's the perfect time to reflect on life and ask - am I happy? I hope this song gives people motivation in a fun and energetic way.

Lyrics

This is the story ‘bout the boy next door
He sat there dormant like he was not sure
Just what his purpose was what he wanted in life
Big house, flash car, kids and a trophy wife

Now he’s done this for a number of years
And he thought by now happiness would appear
A tickling feeling scratches inside his core
Deep down he knows, he’s destined for mo-or-ore
He's destined for mo-or-ore

He wants to find his calling
He wants to fly, high
He’s done enough stalling
Right now it’s do or die

Do or die
No other option, but to
Crash or fly
Time to make a move
Sat on his hands for too long
His dreams overdue
Do or die
Cos now, it’s do or die
Do or die - I - I

He knew than greatness was always the plan
But for years and years he played it safe like other men
He looks in the mirror, seeing what he’s become
A plain old zombie working under the thumb

Of old, old ideas of what success should be
It clashed with what he knows is his destiny
This feeling is one he can no longer endure
Deep down inside he knows, he’s destined for mo-or-ore
He's destined for mo-or-ore

He wants to find his calling
He wants to fly, high
He’s done enough stalling
Right now it’s do or die

Do or die
No other option, but to
Crash or fly
Time to make a move
Sat on his hands for too long
His dreams overdue
Do or die
Cos now, it’s do or die
Do or die - I - I

He controls
His destiny
Life takes its toll
But he’s found the key

Do or die
No other option, but to
Crash or fly
Time to make a move
Sat on his hands for too long
His dreams overdue
So look fear in the eye
Cos now, it’s do or die
Do or die - I - I
Do or die
Do or die
