my lyricsbox
"Welcome to the real world",
She said to me condescendingly
Take a seat, take your life
Plot it out in black and white
Well I never lived the dream of the prom kings
And the drama queens, I'd like to think the best of me
Is still hiding up my sleeve

They love to tell you, "Stay inside the lines"
But something's better on the other side
I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

So the good boys and girls take the so called "right track"
Faded white hats grabbing credits and maybe transfers
They read all the books but they can't find the answers
And all of our parents, they're getting older
I wonder if they've wished for anything better
While in their memories, tiny tragedies

They love to tell you, "Stay inside the lines"
But something's better on the other side
I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

I am invincible
I am invincible
I am invincible
As long as I'm alive

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above
I just can't wait 'til my ten year reunion
I'm gonna bust down the double doors
And when I stand on these tables before you
You will know what all this time was for
This song is from the album "No Such Thing", "Any Given Thursday", "Inside Wants Out" and "Room For Squares".
