Why do I think? Why do I try? / Why does it seem like I can fly? / These notions and these motions / Against the current, fighting corrosions

Paralyzed and stiff / Man, I think I really need a spliff / These options and these choices / How can I focus amidst the noises

They say access can lead to success / But really it can keep you reckless / The key to living is on less / Not on a life of excess

We’re Alices and Peter Pans /Daydreaming bout Lala Land /¬†With parents supporting every switch /¬†Every desire, every rant, /¬†Grantin’ every wish

When you think you can do anything /¬†You feel the need to take on everything /¬†Girl, you’re in for a rude awakening /¬†Stepping up to the plate with nothing

Now I ain’t blaming anyone – I’m awake /¬†Responsibility falls on one – I’m at stake /¬†There’s really no way to prepare /¬†Life is somehow made to scare

The shit out of your mind /¬†So that you don’t go on walkin blind /¬†Amongst these minions and their opinions /¬†Under dominion without the Son /¬†What is the meanin of this

Now I can keep starin at my shoes /¬†And turn a blind eye to the news /¬†But I can’t help the need to prove ¬†/¬†That I can make things happen make things move

By day I’m punching in the numbers /¬†Suits, slots and ruffled feathers /¬†At night pour words into the dark /¬†No easy feat, but I got heart

And a good enough mind /¬†To keep my hustle deep in the grind /¬†There’s no way out of it now /¬†I’m running after the crown

I’m chasing the Renaissance /¬†Ain’t got no time for your responses /¬†You can act all non-chalant /¬†Deep down this is what you really want

Now it might seem like a lot /¬†But I know that it’s worth a shot /¬†To lay your life, lay your heart /¬†Even if you keep coming back to the start
