Well I took the engine off this rocket
Always forcing myself to live in my pocket
I had dreams but they often went unspoken
Muttering hints as eager tokens

And at the idea of my chance
I was always denied the dance
And I let their doubts become the hurt
That buried my soul beneath the dirt


This manifest destiny
You know what it belongs to me
Just you wait, just you wait and see

I will laugh and I will smile
Freedom from the chains of your denial
Toward my voice you will start running
Hold tight for my second coming

I knew I was charmed
But how could they know
If I silenced my yes
So that they couldn’t say no

Living in my head
I feared the future
Always praying for fate
Wishing it would come sooner

But I kept numb and still for such a long time
Extinguishing the fire inside
Words like blades and twisting ropes
Drowning heads and smothering throats


I realized you were wrong
Why’d I let your judgment dictate me all along
You can’t tell me what to do
You can’t tell me what to be anymore
Now that I’m ready for the battle
Will you still be my foe


But I have my ammunition
And I’ll see you when I
Complete this mission

And I even if I fail
My passion will prevail
I’ll be happy

And then I could die
Knowing that I tired
I’ll be happy

And that’s more than
You could every say
So please hold tight
For my second coming

Cuz this manifest destiny
It belongs to me
So hold tight for my
Second Coming
