Amias Davies – The Paper That Was Written lyrics

What we were told to do,
What was expected of us,
We all wanted to know what’s really true,
Did we really have to take the bus?
Is it really okay to be number two?
Is there really nothing to discuss?
Who said which group is the right crew?
Is it really better not to cross?
Waiting is the safest route,
But being late is not the right path,
Who determined everything from the root?
Who said, ‘but we did the math’?
Who said that everything is predictable?
Who stopped the dreams?
There’s no such thing as a miracle
When you work harder than the extremes.

Don’t go by the book,
Live to your fullest,
Life will hit you with a hook,
But don’t just stand there clueless,
Dodge the bullets,
Be the fewest,
To get the fullness of life,
Forget the paper,
It was written by losers,
Get through life, layer by layer,
Be one winner,
By tearing the paper that was written.
