Straightaway – Off The Beaten Track lyrics

I see people all around me
Sad and frustrated looks and faces surrounding me
Living every day like any other
Too afraid of calling out for a different way to exist
Holding on like hopeless cases until they can't stand it no more
Confined in a daily routine and glossy daydreams of a better life
Wishing they had safer options to go off the beaten track

How long is it gonna take before we break these standards of living?
And cherish the hope of a brand new existence that would finally make sense
Isn't it time to refuse these rules we've never had the choice to agree?
These rules we've never really had the choice to agree

I see a thousand passers-by just walking on
Consumed by compromise and resignation
Choosing stability upon freedom to avoid insecure feelings
So afraid to go against the grain
And break this cycle they don't dare to run away from

How long is it gonna take before we break these standards of living?
And cherish the hope of a brand new existence that would finally make sense
Isn't it time to refuse these rules we've never really had the choice to agree
