What you do here is the marking of life
Starting here and fighting the world and its strife
Do you follow over footprints or make your own?
It’s up to you to figure out the speed and the tone
What’s another four years in the shadow of a crowd?
Shrinking into silence when your thoughts are too loud
You’re just counting down the days, just hoping to survive
A waste of your time- could be used to derive
Some courage or some faith, or even knowledge to spare
Since when did all those bright eye dreams become nothing to care?
Get a hold, get a grip, knock some sense back into ya
The only one in your way- just look in the mirror
You’ve a brain with a mind, brimming full of directions
To take the world and give humanity protection
From those who give up and say why bother at all?
You are capable of so much more, than one single call.
Who cares if I’m not the one who saves the world?
What matters if all the secrets of life are unfurled?
Me, I’m just trying to live my life all the same
It’s too risky- no resets- this isn’t a game
I can deal with mediocre, society’s status quo
I just need to get by, my things following in tow
There are seven some other billion people to choose
If I’m not a doctor, leader, or soldier what really is there to lose?
Do you hear the echoing voices
Of generations making these choices
To throw away the potential and gifts of mankind
And confide them into a journey with a tighter bind
You were made to reach the limit- you could go to the moon and back
Your capabilities still only when you end the track
“I’m only human” is hardly an excuse to be made
When it’s our greatest strength, ability, and trade
