  • I will not bend
    I will not bow
    I will not break
    I'll stand my ground
    Won't be afraid
    To sing out loud
    To sing out loud
    To sing out loud
    The visions of what's involved
    The tensions you must resolve
    Distractions will just dissolve
    YOU ARE NOT LIKE ME

    He's encountered a setback,
    He isn't down to let that
    Keep him on the ground. Press that
    Button- ignite the jetpack!
    Launch pad shrink disappear
    Past the brink the
    Atmosphere's thinning and his
    Plasma's tingly
    Planes appear to be birds and
    Birds appear to be bees and
    He's hearing the words that
    Occur to him for no reason
    "What are you living your life for
    What are you willing to die for
    What do you believe to be the grain of truth you can provide for
    This grand adventure?
    Is it your plan to spend your
    Days batted about by
    These random events?
    Are you fueled by another engine
    Lighting a fire beneath?
    Have you breathed and seen your breath in the winds
    And have you reached that point?"

    [Chorus]

    You only get to see this
    Earth one time it's
    Axis tilt's it
    Changes climates
    Plates shift weights and
    Continents drift and
    Draft twisted fates and
    Monstrous frictions
    Fragmentations stress and
    Aggravation
    Depression and confusion and
    Bad relations use your
    Imagination elude their
    Categorization
    Whether the crowd gives boos or
    Congratulations the blue's just
    Something you move through toward the
    Vast expanses of space on the
    Universal infinite
    Path to emancipation the
    Gravity of the planet
    Grips you but don't abandon
    Ship you feel the pressures in
    Side can you withstand it?

    [Chorus]

    The heights you'll reach the
    Depths you'll delve to
    Depends on the propulsion
    System that propels you
    Methods that compel you
    Messages they sell you
    Punishments they give you
    For doing what they tell you
    But we've got passion
    They've got prisons
    You've got the freedom to
    Make a decision
    Will you abandon
    All your addictions
    Take your stand and
    Live your convictions
    What've you got to lose what've
    You been taught to chose
    What're you so hot to prove with your
    Beautiful socks and shoes
    The costumes' frayed cloth covers
    Skin like a shroud
    Exhaust fumes fade off in the wind
    Like a cloud

    [Chorus]
