it’s so fucking hard to do something real
to follow your heart and do what you feel
there’s always a few that make you feel like shit
with words like glue, you can’t let them stick
chills up your spine, heat through your veins
when you march out of line you’re forced to explain
an indifferent nation is hard to convince
when participation is an inconvenience

forget their road to success
one day they’ll be impressed

sometimes I wake up and look in the mirror
I feel in my gut this worry and fear
the night has a way of stealing your spark
and the progress you made gets lost in the dark
inspiration is gone, I wanna blend in
what is it with dawn that gets under my skin?
I start to review my plans from before
and I don’t wanna do anything anymore

forget their road to success
one day they’ll be impressed

there’s love everywhere, but it’s out of reach
what I don’t wanna hear holds on like a leech
empty promises, no one will commit
show me substance, not people who quit
I can’t make you smile
I think it’s okay every once in a while to do it your way
take my eyes off the clock, ignore my reflection
I know what I want, so keep your suggestions

to hell with their road to success
one day they’ll be impressed
