Lyric No Such Thing


"welcome to the real world"
she said to me condescendingly
"take a seat, take your life
plot it out in black and white"
well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings
and the drama queens
I d like to think the best of me
is still hiding up my sleeve

they love to tell you "stay inside the lines"
but something s better on the other side

I want to run through the halls of my high school
I want to scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there s no such thing as the real world
just a lie you ve got to rise above

so the good boys and girls take the so-called right track
faded white hats grabbing credits, maybe transfers
they read all the books but they can t find the answers
all of our parents, they re getting older
I wonder if they ve wished for anything better
while in their memories, tiny tragedies

they love to tell you "stay inside the lines"
but something s better on the other side

I want to run through the halls of my high school
I want to scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there s no such thing as the real world
just a lie you ve got to rise above

I am invincible
I am invincible
I am invincible
as long as I m alive

I want to run through the halls of my high school
I want to scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there s no such thing as the real world
just a lie you ve got to rise above

I just can t wait for my ten year reunion
I m gonna bust down the double doors
and when I stand on these tables before you
you will know what all this time was for
