I hear you washed your hands
Turned your back,
Now you've had enough
Because you're too tired
You're getting old
Your time is up

I won't give up my life
All my life
I'll never give in to the ordinary
Life all my life
I never gave in to the ordinary

Does it hurt to live your life for someone else
You want to pin the blame
There's no one to blame except yourself

I won't give up my life
All my life
I'll never give in to the ordinary
Life all my life
I never gave in to the ordinary

You're shut down
Now it's time to settle down
What you're looking for
Didn't turn out to be what you found
Now you fit in to a world
That holds you down
Tell me why
You want to be like everyone else
Just like everyone else

I went the other way X4
