lyrics

Everyday you wake up shuffle towards the door
Heavy chains follow you down the hall
Now you want to see the world
See the world for what it is
Disillusions are getting you down(everyday)
Are you giving it up?
Can’t lift American dreams?
But you never understood why it was so far out of reach
It was just an illusion

Steady on the brakes don’t hurt yourself
You’ll break through the glass
Don’t you go on hurting no one
Your only gonna hurt yourself
Steady on the breaks don’t hurt yourself
You’ll break through the glass
Don’t you go on hurting no one
Don’t you blow out your candle too fast

Dizzy and out of reach
From all the folks who shaped your life
Memories of you lost in the by and by
How easily we’ve fallen off
The path to treat each other right
Not a shred of love and respect in sight (waive bye-bye)
Still some have given up
That universal dream
Shaking the peace from the tops of the trees (yeah)
