Real World
I'm always clinching my fists

And I'm always making me pissed

All I want is a chance to grow

I'm tired of being who you all know

And I'm tired of being where I've already been

I'm jumping out of my skin

Won't somebody just please let me in

All I want's to see the real world

Watch red carpets coming unfurled

And everybody tells me I'm crazy

All I tell them is "Maybe I may be!"

All I want is someone to save me

Call me a dreamer or just call me crazy

I just want to be who I am

Not another part of the American scam

I don't want a corporate office space

I just want a freaking dream to chase

I'm tired of everyone telling me no

And I'm tired of having no place to go

Why doesn't anyone believe in me?

But I don't care if they can't see

'Cause I'm still here

I always will be

They can't stop me

I'll be somebody

'Cause I'm be here

And you can't change me

But I'm getting close to cutting my wrists

'Cause all of these people keep making me pissed

Telling me who I need to be

"Go to school, study biology"

I'd rather be nobody

Than who you are

'Cause I'm not somebody

If I'm not a star

I'll never be your doctor

Or computer geek

I can't work all day

Much less all week

I can't waste my life

And I can't face this knife

So, I can't take my life

But I can't take this strife

Help set me free

Or just let me be

'Cause I'm still here

And I always will be

And I'll be here

Even if you don't want me

'Cause I'm still here

And you can't stop me

But I can't convince my hands to steer

Away from this bridge...must get my mind clear

What's this happening

Is this God rapturing?

Is this my life I am capturing?

Pen and pad and damn I'm mad

Just let me go home

I want to go home
