Predictive life outcomes
At the age of 5
He's gonna be a football star
She'll find the cure for time

They look down at the young blonde girl
unaffected by her smile
They shake their heads
'She just won't cut it'

We try so hard to challenge our fate, yeah.
Success will be such sweet revenge, yeah.
We'll fight the odds that tell us
We can't be what we want to be
We try so hard to challenge our fate, yeah.

He's not in love with me
he only wants this body
He tells me: 'Who do you think you are?
There's no way you'll ever make it
Find something stable'

He breaks through my thin-skinned soul
unaffected by my guitar
He shakes his head: 'You just won't cut it, cut it'
Guess what? Those words mean nothing to me

Don't tell me I'm not the one
I'll prove your stupid sorry ass wrong
And when I do, When I do
I'll wave to you from the top
