When you were young
nobody told you that this day would come
nobody wanted to tell
You
The truth
Coz everyone
Hoped that you might just be the exception
the exception to the rules
And you can be
extraordinary
if you choose
I don't see anyone
Holding a gun to you
By now you're a link in
the chain
But it's up to you
To break
All of your pain
All of your pain has been passed down the family
into your very
things ooohh
So you gotta break open the gates
Open the gates, let the hate in your out
You've nothing to gain but the truth ooohhh
And you can be
extraordinary
If you choose
I don't see anyone
holding a gun to you
By now you're a link in the chain
Now it's up to you to break
One foot either side of the line
You know it's only a matter of time
Before you just step to side between the dark and the light
Coz you can be extraordinary if you choose
I don't see anyone holding a gun to you
By now your a link in the chain
But it's up to you
To break
