Young and free, something you'll never be A childhood's end, it's lunacy Pure dictation, they don't listen And you're just waiting for what you're missing
Welcome to your nightmare You just can't walk away It's time for you, to choose, your fate You just can't let it lay Welcome to your nightmare Your whole life's on the way, Today
You're no good, misunderstood, A.I.R. All their hopes and visions, of what they want you to be Crucial times, made up minds, A.I.R. So high and mighty, though much too blind to see
Who are you gonna live your life for? Conformity will trap you like a locked door Independence means owning your decisions Authority will put your soul in prison
Fight, or go insane, there's no one else to blame Stop, their influence, you can't give them a chance Break, right through the wall, that separates us all Start, your second life, without their hands in sight
You got your pride, you got your visions Don't subside, don't ever give in Don't compromise just keep on grinning The games they play you just keep on winning Keep on winning Keep on winning Keep on winning A.I.R.
