Real Life Lyrics Dreamed 4446 days ago | | 229 words

You tried to raise me right
You tried to fight my fight
Try to instill in me
Values you thought I’d need

But then you left me here
Left me all alone
Without some directions
Even a map home

Throughout the games
Took the gold in pain
Silver in prejudice
Bronze in hate

Take the stage
Stand up tall
Show the world
I’ve done it all

hey mother
hey father
look at your
young daughter

she’s following the same path I did
she’s doing the same things I did
I want her to be safe
Don’t want her to disgrace your

family name like I did
family same like I did
you don’t believe she will
but I can tell you for sure

just watch her
follow her
downward spiral
to her fall

Throughout the games
Took the gold in pain
Silver in prejudice
Bronze in hate

Take the stage
Stand up tall
Show the world
I’ve done it all

have you seen the way she looks at me
eyes plead to be free of your tyranny

of your hate
of your pain
screams rattle
her cage

her eyes well up
with tears so full
build an ark
they’ll cover the world

wasted away a thousand lies
a million lifetimes
your eyes died
sucked dry from crying

our last breath
anyone would ever hear
came as we leaped
following a single tear
