Beautiful Tension – Ordinary lyrics

I've never been the one to settle
So you can keep your little boxes, keep your little labels
I'll never be the one to sell out
'Cause why would I trade so much for, so little
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, I could go that way but it just ain't me
Ooh ooh, ooh, ooh, what you're talking 'bout don't sound like free... Dom

I wanna live
I wanna dream
I'm needing so much more than ordinary
Set me free
I need to believe
That I was made for more than ordinary

I'm holding out for something better
So you can keep your little trophies, keep your shiny medals
I'll never be the one to fit in your mold
'Cause I could follow my dreams or I could do as I'm told
They say
Go to school, learn a lot
Be a man, get a job
Find a house
Shut your mouth, this is what it’s all about
You got the feeling, got a reason but you set it down
Is it the right time, or the wrong time
To take a step out the boat don't look down

Don't tell me where I can go
Don't tell me what I can be
This world you've painted is too small for me
I'm hanging onto this life
Won't go down with out a fight
I'm screaming it out tonight
