half the day to feel raw
the other half to cry
i need to break out of the apathy
this state of nothingness

i've been growing up
listening to 'the sky's the limit'
but hell, here they tell me
the ground is the boundary, my limit
the standard for people
(yeah to settle as half dreamers
where they struggle with jobs they hate
and treated like second class citizens)

man, its time i make my own rules.
