They say we can’t make it through
Too young; don’t know what to do.
This life is much too hard for you and me.
They say we’re living in our dreams
Black, white, and nothing in between.
This world is never as it seems to be.
But they don’t want this
And they don’t feel this
But this was never theirs at all!

So here I stand.
I’m ready for anything.
Just a man, but I’m giving everything.
We’re here only for a second
And then we’re gone when we least expect it.
So do more than survive.
Let’s live like we’re alive!

They say, “Stay inside the lines we’ve drawn
And you will be just fine. Don’t take chances
With your life. C’mon.” But they don’t want this,
And they don’t feel this, but this was never theirs at all!

So here I stand.
I’m ready for anything.
Just a man, but I’m giving everything.
We’re here only for a second
And then we’re gone when we least expect it.
So do more than survive.
Let’s live like we’re alive!

This world, we’ve gotta let it go.
This life is out of our control.

So here I stand. I’m ready for anything.
Just a man, but I’m giving everything.
We’re here only for a second
And then we’re gone when we least expect it.
So do more than survive. Let’s live like we’re alive!
