The time has come, We're breaking in
The real world waits, To shed our skin
And our teenage crimes, We'll leave behind
Mistakes we've made, We won't go-

Back for tomorrow when we've got today
We're packing up our sorrow, tomorrow can wait
Say hurray, hurray! For the past we cling to
Today, today! We've got more to sing to
I'm the kid your parents told you not to become
But life's too short to live it in fear of

If it's for us, who can be against us?
We are the hope and the future
The promised ones with everything to prove
And with this plan written in our hands
We are the hope and the future
The promised ones with nothing else to lose

This is as good as it gets, your time is of the essence
Day by day, but you're not getting younger
You're on both sides of your fate
But dear, we'll find an escape
Living fast, dying younger- you're not

Not getting younger but it's okay
So hold back your tears darling
All that can wait

If it's for us, who can be against us?
We are the hope and the future
The promised ones with everything to prove
And with this plan written in our hands
We are the hope and the future
The promised ones with nothing else to lose

The promised ones, we don't know what to do
(Set your mind and your heart to anything that you do,
Take my hand, this is yours, and you've got nothing to lose)
The promised ones, we don't know what to do
(Set your mind and your heart to anything that you do,
Take my hand, this is yours, and you've got nothing to lose)
The promised ones, we don't know what to do
(Set your mind and your heart to anything that you do,
Take my hand, this is yours, you've got your whole life to-)

Young and we're reckless
Bored and we're selfish
Sick and tired of
Young and we're reckless
Bored and we're selfish
Sick and tired of

If it's for us, who can be against us?
We are the hope and the future
The promised ones with everything to prove
And with this plan written in our hands
We are the hope and the future
The promised ones with nothing else to lose
