Calling all you non-achievers
We are as one and we make a stand
Our wishes of no direction
We plead insane till we reach the end
I imagine all these people
Running up to shake our hands
As we walk along we could be famous
We walk along we could be famous

Yellow buses, streams of caravans
Winding the highway like a snake
Pity all those unbelievers
Busy in life till they make the grade
I imagine ancient places
Sunbeat in some endless heat as
We walk along we could be famous
We walk along we could be dreamers
We walk along we could be strangers
We walk along we could be dangerous

I imagine all these places
I imagine all these things as
We walk along we could be famous
We walk along we could be invisible
We walk along we could be strangers
We walk along we could be dangerous
We walk along we could be famous
We walk along we could be invisible
We walk along we could be strangers
We walk along we could be dangerous...

    General CommentI thought this song was a cover when I first heard it. It's got a very classic quality to it. I think it's about not paying attention to the people who slag you off in life, those who say you won't amount to anything...the 'unbelievers.'

    General CommentBTW, the fourth line (the one with the ?) is totally wrong. I'm listening to it and it actually sounds like he's saying 'weeping...till we reach the end.' Maybe someone with a better ear than me can pick it up and post it for me. I can't find the correct lyric anywhere. Thanks.

    General CommentVioletzebras: I hear "Reaping the same till we reach the end" which is a cross between your "repay" and "weeping". And reaping makes sense considering the line before it - it's like the phrase "you reap what you sow". When you wish for nothing, this is what you will get. Hope that helps. Anyways, great song. Highlights the paradox of desiring fame, but being shy, innocent non-achievers.
