Me or the World?
A passion for life stripped from my hands
Trying to live up to a worlds demands
This is who you should be and what you should do
Be normal thats what you need to do

Don't be different or go against the grain
Do as everyone else they have already won this game
Listen to your elders and do as your told
This is the only way you will live and get old

Forget your own choices and listen to the voices
All of them together is just one big noise
Forget about yourself and live for everyone else
Take your unique thoughts and put them on the shelf

Discard your mind for you haven't the time to think
Thats why you have everyone else to bring you to the brink
Don't take control let the world have the reins
But if anything goes wrong you will take the blame

Forget about being an individual it really doesn't matter
Eat of this bull and let it make you fatter
Forget about your dreams they will take you no where
The people in this world have not a care

So what should you do with your life
Listen to the world as it tries to navigate the strife
Or take control and be on your own
Make the choice to go at it alone

Who knows what is really right and what is really wrong
It seems the world keeps singing the same tired old song
A different road needs to be built or found
A different set of choices to get you around
