  • "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

    [Chorus]
    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 and
    Maybe transfers
    They read all the books but they can't find the answers
    And 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

    [Chorus]

    I am invincible
    I am invincible
    I am invincible
    As long as I'm alive

    [Chorus]

    I just can't wait til 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
