Lyrics: 

v1
There's trouble hiding under every stone
You can let it control you but seeds are sown
Leave it all behind
Not gonna fall
Cus I wanna win
Get on the rung
An' move up the line
Leave it all behind, leave it all behind

chorus
I'm winning,
In a world full of traps to catch
Where I don't have the chat that's pure cut glass
Gonna walk on up and grab the life I want
Gonna take hold tight until the great beyond
The worried people that I pass
Don't realise I want it all
I want it all, I want it all
I want what's mine to have

v2
There's choices to be made on this way
It's not an easy open road, there's much decay
Leave it all behind
I'm on my way
To have it all
Won't let the past
Stop me running tall
Leave it all behind, leave it all behind

chorus
I'm winning,
In a world full of traps to catch
Where I don't have the chat that's pure cut glass
Gonna walk on up and grab the life I want
Gonna take hold tight until the great beyond
The worried people that I pass
Don't realise I want it all
I want it all, I want it all
I want what's mine to have

Bridge
I'm playing with the long haul game
Not letting things go up in flames
Showing I can speak my mind
Learning how to wine and dine
What's to stop me reaching out
Grabbing hold of all self doubt
And all the followers will know
This sure as hell ain't a puppet show

chorus & outro
I'm winning,
In a world full of traps to catch
Where I don't have the chat that's pure cut glass
Gonna walk on up and grab the life I want
Gonna take hold tight until the great beyond
Gonna take hold tight until the great beyond
Leave it all behind
Leave it all behind
Leave it all behind
Leave it all behind

these lyrics seem to me to be well suited to the grunge style of hard rick. i can imagine eddie vedder or chris cornell singing it with the home run slugger rhythms of dave grohl or matt cameron pulling and lunging, pulling and lunging

Strong empowering message. Great rock feel. I could easily read this from a strong women’s point of view as a feminist empowerment lyric.
