Don't defy your dreams. No, really.
Michelle Hotaling (vocals, songwriter), Scott Slater (producer, keys, bass, drums), Ben Tabler (lead guitar)
The de-nied dreams, the alibis
Waiting for the morning light
For some routine, to kill the steam
Of a destiny denied
Come with me and waste some time
To lose your reasons and regain your rhymes
Why the logic, is so tragic
And its killing you inside...
The atmosphere is dim and cool
As you lie down to another rule
And you drown out childhood fantasies
Memories like a cruel disease
That remind you to find all your passion within
Taste the waste of a common thread
Without those dreams youd be better
And youre losing you grip
On a self-loathing that asks...
How dare you defy your dreams?
How dare you defy your dreams inside?
Your fathers proud that you took his lead
So it doesnt matter what you need
The town is pleased that youve done your deeds
To be an upright person
Cant concentrate when you catch your face
In a broken mirror, in a crowded place
That reminds you, from behind you
Somethings killing you inside...
A girl comes in to change your mind
Just when you stop to care, and unwind
The guilt rushes in
Just when will you win?
Not this time...
Youre gonna defy, your dreams again
Spinnin' around you just can't be found
I'm so damn tired of watchin' you drown
in that globe of doom, baby, there's just no room for me.
