Do you understand what it takes

What I have to do, do you know the stakes

So self-centered you are but that's okay

Because it's just the way of the world today

Maybe things could have been better

But who's to say they would have been better

In this world of clashing, dreams abound

The rich have what it takes to bury the poor in the ground

You've got to have the courage to chase your dreams

To keep pushing and spread your wings

You have to leap with eyes wide open

And you might find that you can fly to heaven

So many things wrong, so many evil deeds

And what's left behind are evil seeds

They say that being nice gets you nowhere

But I've learned you've got to be tough but fair

Upper class and lower class are miles apart

But to each their own problems in this world of art

And some people take the cowards way out

But they never understood what it was all about

You've got to have the courage to chase your dreams

No matter how impossible the odds may seem

You've got to take a leap of faith with eyes wide open

And maybe you'll find yourself flying straight to heaven

Some people never look past their own misery

And some can't get over their party of self-pity

But I know

And I've got the scars to show

To teach how it has to be done

And maybe then we can have some fun

Because

You have to learn to chase your dreams

No matter how hard the path may seem

Just leap on up and spread your wings

Obstacles in your path

Just don't give up, don't let them hold you back

You've got to leap with eyes wide open

And maybe, just maybe, you'll fly straight to heaven
