lyrics

Can you hear me
Screaming through this open door?
Am I pathetic?
Sometimes I’m just not sure

There’s gotta be something more than this

Creatures of habit
We’re never breaking with the mold
Isn’t is thrilling?
Excitement awaits us when we get old

There’s gotta be something more than this

Chorus:
Every day that passes seems to seal away my fate
And I’m tired of believing good things come to those who wait
Oh I need some motivation
I gotta get it through my head
The struggle’s real for everyone
And I guess we’re all just hanging by a thread

Are you out there?
Do you even know my name?
Are your friends cool?
‘Cause to me they’re all the same

There’s gotta be something more than this

A million subscribers
In a land of faceless clones
If this is the future
I think we all wind up alone

There’s gotta be something more than this

Chorus

We got a long way to travel
We set a course for what is in our sights
But are we really so fragile
That we can’t even bear to see the light?

Chorus

Oh get me some medication
Before these thoughts go to my head
The struggle’s real for everyone
And I guess we’re all just hanging by a thread
