    Lyrics

    "Welcome to the real world",
    She said to me condescendingly
    Take a seat, take your life
    Plot it out in black and white
    Well I never lived the dream of the prom kings
    And the drama queens, I'd like to think the best of me
    Is still hiding up my sleeve

    They love to tell you, "Stay inside the lines"
    But something's better on the other side
    I wanna run through the halls of my high school
    I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
    I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
    Just a lie you've got to rise above

    So the good boys and girls take the so called "right track"
    Faded white hats grabbing credits and maybe transfers
    They read all the books but they can't find the answers
    And all of our parents, they're getting older
    I wonder if they've wished for anything better
    While in their memories, tiny tragedies

    They love to tell you, "Stay inside the lines"
    But something's better on the other side
    I wanna run through the halls of my high school
    I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
    I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
    Just a lie you've got to rise above

    I am invincible
    I am invincible
    I am invincible
    As long as I'm alive

    I wanna run through the halls of my high school
    I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
    I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
    Just a lie you've got to rise above
    I just can't wait 'til my ten year reunion
    I'm gonna bust down the double doors
    And when I stand on these tables before you
    You will know what all this time was for
