Carpe Diem - August Burns Red

I've thrown away all of my outside distractions.
I'm diving headfirst to chase a dream
that I won't let go.
It's worthless- a waste of time. This goal is out of
reach. You better fall back in line.
This is what I need. You are what I need. I
need motivation to prove you wrong, and I will
prove you wrong.
What makes you think that you are different? How can
you chase these dreams? They've become a chore.
I know I'm close. I'm almost there. Just a
little more, and I will prevail through what
you call "ignorance." I will prevail. Now I've
chased this dream to do what I love, and I
wouldn't trade it for a thing. Now I've chased
this dream, and I made it out alive. I wouldn't
trade it for a thing. I threw away what naysayers
say, and started on a race that I had to win
for myself.
And you proved me wrong, you proved me wrong.
All I've learned is teaching
