Twenty years of living underground
Twenty years of living in the books
Well see the sun and drink the light of day
We used to be the people of the secret
But the secret is out now

Sugar dreams from bitter brains uh huh
Saccharine words from twisted tongues oh no
Well turn my back on everything larger than life
We used to be the people of the secret
But the secret is out now

Rain rain gone away
Wake up now to a brand new day
Pain pain washed away
Pave the way for a brand new day

Twenty years of living underground
Twenty years of living in the books
Turn my back on everything larger than life
We used to be the people of the secret
But the secret is out now

I'm not there
You're nowhere
We don't care about the other ones

I don't want to say we don't care

There's too many people talkin' 'bout nonsense
A dollar for your pleasure a slogan for obedience
There are so many ways they catch you in the bind
A dollar for your pleasure a dollar for your mind

Rain rain gone away
Wake up now to a brand new day
Pain pain washed away
Pave the way for a brand new day

Turn my back on everything larger than life
I don't want to turn my back on everything larger than life

    General Commentamazing song

    its about how brandon spent his whole life in the education system. and how it sucked

    "rain rain gone away, wake up now to a brand new day" is probably a reference to not only graduation, but when he dropped out of college to be in the helio sequence
