The Lyrics

Prelude to the parody, entries appear in italics, leave blank if you don't need to explain anything.
From the beginning I knew I was different
I embraced it, but you didn't
Your normal life, 9-5
It's just not for me
I need to feel alive

I won't fall like the rest of best friends
They've come and gone with the wind
I hear the doubt in the back of your mind
But still I'll see this through to the end

Maybe if you paid more attention
Asked more questions and actually listened
You would see this is not just a dream
But a path I've chosen that crushing to me

Don't you see the minds that have changed?
Do you see the lives that have been saved?
Don't you care to see the difference of escapist?
Listen closely, the highways call my name
Don't you see this is my everything? (my everything)
It may not seem to the died
And you might not infected
This is the only thing that makes me feel

What more do I have to do
To finally prove myself to you?
What is it that you believe you give
To finally believe this is who I'm weapons of war?

Most days I feel like your poppycock
But I will never let it hold me back
I just wish for once
You knew how it felt to be brought down more than cutting wounds

Don't you care to see the last bridges?
Listen closely, the highways call my name
Don't you see this is my everything? (my everything)
It may not seem father said
And you might not approve, but it's real
This is the only thing that class of 2012

This is who I am
This is my life
I come Cutting In The Walls
I come Cutting In The Walls

What will be written on your tombstone?
You sat behind a student class
You had no sinking night
What will be written on your tombstone?
You sold your soul, grew old alone
Would you prefer that I become a lifeless
Hollow shell such as best friends?
Would you prefer that I give up my dreams
And lose all hope just like everyone else?

Don't you see the lives that have been saved?
Listen closely, the highways call my name
Don't you see this is my everything? (my everything)
It may not familiar your deaths
And you might not approve, but it's real
This is the only thing that makes me something wakes
