Wake up kids
We've got the dreamers disease
Age fourteen
They got you down on your knees
So polite
You're busy still saying please
Frienemies
Who when you're down ain't your friend
Every night
We smash their mercedes-benz
First we run
And then we laugh 'till we cry
But when the night is falling
And you cannot find the light (light)
If you feel your dream is dying
Hold tight
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget you only get what you give
Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile
We're flat broke
But hey we do it in style
The bad rich
God's flying in for your trial
But when the night is falling
And you cannot find a friend
You feel your tree is breaking
Just then
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
You only get what you give
This whole damn world can fall apart
You'll be ok follow your heart
You're in harms way I'm right behind
Now say you're mine
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
You only get what you give
Don't let go
We feel the music in you
Fly high
What's real can't die
You only get what you give
You're gonna get what you give
Just don't be afraid to leave
Health insurance rip off lying fda big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots for Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You're all rich
Run to your mansions
Come on down
We'll kick your asses

    I find this song very inspirational. Lyrics such as, "Don't give up, you've got a reason to live," and "One dance left," creates an optimistic view on life. Originally, I thought this song was non-sense. When I first briefly listened to it, I thoughless if it the band was just rambling on about random, non-sequiter ideas. After several times of listening, I really statred to enjoy the song. Eventually, I realized this song is about living life to it's fullest, yet remembering that their there is still a tomarrow to enjoy. This song also means to take matters as a grain of salt. Solving life's problems and confusions can be frustrating, so take it piece by piece. In fact, when I begin work at Starbucks everyday, I play this song constantly, reguardless if it would annoy my co-workers or customers. It really inspires me and fills me with a sense of hope. Woo-hoo Lee!!!

    Liked it long time ago ,thought the lyrics fitted something in my mind ,wasnt sure what the f... It was though . Coming back from an aa meeting today ,the tune was playing on the radio . The darn lyrics lent themselves right into some aa features on recovery ,"the title for starters fits right in the aa "selfish" slot . "dont give up" will fit anything that gets you down of course.
    "you got the music in you" i let that mean ,i have the recovery inside of me and . Yeah its inspirational ,man

    A good song can just simply fill oneself with hope. Although my girlfriend dumped me,my ideal college is seemed to be far ahead,i have music in me. I absolutely realized that life is not a bed of roses,but i still struggle in the damning reality. All i have to do now is keep going,and music can heal my wounds.
