Almost all my life they told me that I couldn’t
Dreaming every night they told me that I shouldn’t
Told me that I should’ve quit, that I’ll never finish it
That I’ll never reach the top and no one knows that I exist
But I kept climbing, kept grinding everyday
And I kept writing everything I had to say
Now they wanna shut me up, shut me in, shut me out
Yeah, I’d be mad too if someone made me shut my mouth
But it’s different when you never had a voice
No one ever listens so you never had a choice
Never had a path, only people in your way
Never had a mask or a reason to be fake
All you had was you and a reason to succeed
All you had to do was keep believing in the dream
All you ever knew was being weakened on your knees
But you’re only gonna lose if you don’t learn from your defeats

Yeah, gotta make the world know my name

I’ve got my head in the clouds
My feet on the ground
I’m standing out and I am not afraid
With my head in the clouds
Never looking down
Yeah, I’ll never stop until the world knows my name

I wish I could go back, back when we were kids
With everything with passion, with everything we did
Everything was honest, everything that we were promised
And the thought of what we wanted is makes it so ironic
That it’s different than the shit that we were told
How the rules were written, how the story really goes
Everyone’s a friend, give everyone a chance
So everyone pretends that they really give a damn
Man, fuck that, nothing’s ever what it seems
People stepping over people, people preying on the weak
‘Cause its business and we’re feeding the machine
Time is money, money’s living, so we live the disease
What happened to the magic, what happened to the thrill?
What happened to the passion, they way we used to feel?
All we see is fashion and flaming dollar bills
And now I’m looking back, I wish this all was real

I’ve got my head in the clouds
My feet on the ground
I’m standing out and I am not afraid
With my head in the clouds
Never looking down
Yeah, I’ll never stop until the world knows my name

I woke up one day
With the world outside telling me I should walk away
But I can’t, I won’t break
That’s how I know everything will be okay

I woke up one day
With the world outside telling me I should walk away
But I can’t, I won’t break
That’s how I know that everything will be okay

I woke up one day
With the world outside telling me I should walk away
But I can’t, I won’t break
I gotta make the world know my name

I’ve got my head in the clouds
My feet on the ground
I’m standing out and I am not afraid
With my head in the clouds
Never looking down
Yeah, I’ll never stop until the world knows my name

I woke up one day
With the world outside telling me I should walk away
But I can’t, I won’t break
I’ll make the world know my name

I woke up one day
With the world outside telling me I should walk away
But I can’t, I won’t break
I’ll make the world know my name
