To the left, to the right
Like a soldier I'm stepping in time
No control, stay behind
Scared to play, just watching from the sidelines
Looking in the mirror, vision's getting clear
Should have told myself a long time ago
At the end of the road, no more

Marching through life like a fool on parade
Staying in line always being afraid
Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
That's the beat of my drum telling me to change
Time to open my eyes, quit following blind
Like a fool on parade

See my face in the crowd
When did I forget what I was about
So insecure is what they made me
Now I know that they can't break me
Looking in the mirror, vision's getting clear
Should have trusted myself a long time ago
Time to pick a new road

Marching through life like a fool on parade
Staying in line always being afraid
Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
That's the beat of my drum, telling me to change
Time to open my eyes, quit following blind
Like a fool on parade

Let the beat of your heart guide you
Don't be a clown cause they're laughing at you
Don't follow them down
When you know they're wrong, be strong
Pull the blinds down away from your eyes now
Walk in your own direction, and don't turn around

Marching through life like a fool on parade
Staying in line though I ain't afraid, no more
Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum
That's the beat of my drum telling me to change
Time to open my eyes, quit following blind
Like a fool on parade

No more being in a fool's parade
No more being in a fool's parade
