So tired of trying to keep up with someone else's pace

You got a new tattoo, but the same old face

Complacency is the enemy and I've been acting old

There's got to be more to life than doing what we're told

You can't bottle this - it always slips away

Shut out - of a dream we had not long ago

There's nothing to prove, nothing to show

We've been told all this before

So why am I still keeping score

Constraints are all around you every single day

When you're feeling overloaded you can't run away

And everywhere you go there's another wall in life

No matter where you look there's no end in sight

You can't bottle this - it always slips away

Shut out - of a dream we had not long ago

Nothing to prove, nothing to show

We've been told all this before

And I'm still keeping score

I understand you've got pressure's

But I can't accept your reaction

It's been a long road

Is it all a distraction?

Birth, school, work, death

These are things we all have to accept

And sometimes it feels like you're hitting a wall

I can't make sense of it all

Shut up!

It's another time and another place

Get a different view and a brand new take

It's a brand new day, it's a brand new day

Brand new day

It's a brand new day

Brand new day
