You think that I live in a world of make-believe

A world I've created out of fantasy

You think that I'm going nowhere in life

And you blame the drugs that I've tried

Is it because I don't have a job?

Don't you think your lectures have to stop?

Because I have news for you

I have dreams that stretch so far

And a talent in my hands to write these words

You blame me for have the courage you didn't

For chasing these dreams when I have a chance at'em

You can't understand the way I think

Or the way that I'm acting

You've got to live while you're still young

And do the stupid while you're still dumb

You've left me alone until now

Can't you see that I'm not a child?

Because I have news for you

I have dreams that stretch so far

And a talent that others would die for

You blame me for having the courage you don't

So I chase these dreams that won't leave me alone

And you sit and you wonder why

How could I come so far when just yesterday I was five

Now it's time for your lectures to stop

Because in my own time I will get a job

To tide me over until I get rich

And rub it in your face you filthy bitch

Because I have news for you

I have dreams that stretch so far

I have this talent that people have died for

And I have the courage that you did not

To chase these dreams until my heart stops
