They said!
you'll grow up someday soon enough
the days gonna come when you put in your nine to five
just like the next man
They said!
your friends will be fly by nights
so decide your fate at fourteen

All of them live someone else's dream
to be sold
they all look down their nose on me
like I'm below them
All of them said to go nowhere is a disease
so decide
you're running out of time

(chorus)
That's what they always used to say
to me and you
when we dream of a different day
the voices were there to remind us
that we're getting old
and our worst fears were right all along

They said!
you'd grow up someday soon enough
the days gonna come when you put in your nine to five
just like the next man
All of them said to go nowhere is a disease
so decide your fate at fourteen

(chorus)

    General CommentAwesome song. It's about how everyone tells you that you have to follow a certain set path in life and expects you to follow that path even if it makes you unhappy
