Intro 

(1a) "Welcome to the real world", she said to me 
     condescendingly 
     Take a seat 
     Take your life 
     Plot it out in black and white 
(1b) Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings 
     and the drama queens 
     I'd like to think the best of me 
     is still hiding up my sleeve 

(2)  They love to tell you 
     stay inside the lines 
(3)  But something's better 
     on the other side 

(4)  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 

(1a) So the good boys and girls take the so called right track 
     faded white hats 
     grabbing credits 
     maybe transfers 
     They read all the books but they can't find the answers 
(1b) And all of our parents 
     they're getting older 
     I wonder if they've wished for anything better 
     while in their memories 
     tiny tragedies 

(2)  They love to tell you 
     stay inside the lines 
(3)  But something's better 
     on the other side 

(4)  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 

(5)  I am invincible 
     I am invincible 
     I am invincible 
     as long as I'm alive (2) 

(4)  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 
(4)  I just can't wait till 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 

Ends on (079890)

I used the Conan O'Brien performance and a webcast at getmusic.com
