This lack of sleep it doesn't help at all
And now this barricade has turned into a wall
I say "Oh what can I do?"
It makes it much harder when they're laughing at you...
But giving up won't fly with me right now
And if I try enough it has to work somehow
What can i do?
Gotta be strong or I'll begin to break in two
I gotta make due and see this through
They told me this train won't wait for you...

I'm makin' a name
I'm stakin' a claim in what I knew was mine all along
I'll fake it for fame
I do not know shame and I would sell my soul for a song
I would sell my soul for a song

My eyes are growing heavy with disdain
Cause I cannot seem to harness my refrains
The rumors are true
I'm feeling so lost and I have no clue what to do
And everyone around me seems to know
A secret that they do not care to show
But I dare not speak out
For if they know that I am weak I'm down and out
I gotta pretend there is no doubt
And for that reason I will shout...

I'm makin' a name
I'm stakin' a claim in what I knew was mine all along
I'll fake it for fame
I do not know shame and I would sell my soul for a song
I would sell my soul for a song
