lyrics

It’s important that we know what we need
To find ourselves and follow dreams
No one else knows what we need, it’s up to us
It’s on everything you’ve ever seen
Your notes and your papers and your leaves
The ways you’ve always wanted to be free
All point to this

If we don’t go facing our fears
What the hell are we doing here?
The only point to life is to live it
See there’s nothing left to do
But wake in the morning at 6:02
And take the very next train, to wherever

Pack the books and board the train
Make sure someone thinks you’re insane
Leave it all up to your dreams, and you’ll be fine
I’ve got two tickets to run
Purchased for the dawn
Answers for anyone
Will be denied

Every single day that we stay
Is one more day, closer to the grave
Making the most of this means just what it says
I remember things about this, no one else does
Pictures only show you the things you want to see
And the people who don’t know, only know the things they know
These people were not made for you or me.
