I've thrown away all of my outside distractions
I'm diving headfirst to chase a dream that I won't let go

It's worthless, a waste of time
This goal is out of reach,
you better fall back in line

This is what I need
You are what I need
I need motivation to prove you
Wrong, and I will prove you wrong

What makes you think that you are different?
How can you chase these dreams?
They've become a chore
I know I'm close, I'm almost there
Just a little more, and I will prevail
Through what you call ignorance
I will prevail

Now I've chased this dream to do what I love
and I wouldn't trade it for a thing
Now I've chased this dream, and I made it out alive
I wouldn't trade it for a thing
I threw away what naysayers say,
and started on a race that I had to win
For myself

And you proved me wrong, you proved me wrong
All I've learned is teaching me more
All I know is driving me on
