You get so old waiting for the gold
It's a tale that's rarely told
And people know that the silver shines
It's what's best for them each time

Stood on the outside
I was happy to let the whole world pass me by
Excited by what I thought I'd find
Excited that people told me that I'd surely lost my mind

But you show
You show there's such an older side
A side I believed had died
And buried locked away

And it knows
We didn't see the outcome
We didn't know we'd be left dumb
And be misunderstood

And so it's one step closer now
It's excess at any cause
Yes it knows that it's being chased
They can chase it more each day

I dream out loud
Of things I've never seen
(Stress to be the very best, for me to please, to pass each test)
If it works out
My future will be none of these
(Stress to be the very best, for me to please, to pass each test)

Another blow
We didn't see the outcome
We didn't know we'd be left dumb
And so misunderstood

But you show
Exposing the an older side
A side that I had tried to hide, and gone against the grain

(Stress to be)

But you'd showed
You showed you're such an older side
A side I believed had died
And buried locked away

And it knows
We didn't see the outcome
We didn't know we'd be left dumb
And so misunderstood

Get out now
Get out while you can
Cause there's a world that you're missing
And a life you're not living

Cause it knows
We didn't say a thing
We didn't say a thing
We didn't say a thing
We didn't say it
