Song Lyrics

"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 dreams 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 to 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 got to rise above

I am invincible (x3)

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 to lie you`ve got to rise above

I just can`t wait til my 10 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
