Alarm sounds, eyes open, another day begins,
Your routine life awaits you
I'm only getting older, I'm only getting older.

I've spent too long trying to please everyone
It's time I got selfish and did something
Don't need your opinions, can't hear your objections
Like it or not, this is who I am

Go to work and pretend I'm someone that I'm not
Just turn and nod, do what they say
You said I could be anything I want if I give it all I have
Well this is my life and these are my dreams

Chorus x2

    General CommentThe point of this song is very clear, but it's still an amazing song.

    It's about a person who's tired of being somebody else for everyone around them. He wants to do something for himself, and not do what he's told all the time. It's a common topic, but it can run so deep, and for Dream State, sound so captivating.
