How Styx Lyrics Changed My Life

The jig is up. The news is out. They've finally found me…
Styx
When I was in eighth grade, Styx released Pieces of Eight, and let me tell you, side two of the album taught me some hard life lessons:

I’ll take those long nights, impossible odds
Keepin’ my eye to the keyhole
All that to be just what I am
Well I’m gonna be a blue collar man


Do do do do do do do do
(You don’t understand)
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do

Tommy Shaw, , Blue Collar Man, 1978
