Going to school was like being force-fed molasses; it made
me want to throw up, but I kept taking it 'for my own good.'
It was perhaps the most monotonus, boring waste of my time
imaginable.


I’ve traded my entire life for everything I’ve dreamed
This world and all its nonsense are of no use to me
The threads of this reality quickly become unseamed

The world I see with naked eyes aren’t what other have it deemed
All that that glitters is not gold but a poison that’s quite deadly
I’ve traded my entire life for everything I’ve dreamed

Nightmares that plague me are lovelier than curses you have screamed
This world is not my choice in views, not what I wish to see
The threads of this reality quickly become unseamed

The life I despised, the one I had, was not exactly as it seemed
I was kept trapped in a cage of all that’s real, never to be free
I’ve traded my entire life for everything I’ve dreamed

The world it gives false smiles, the ones my loved ones beamed
I’d rather live in fiction where I know how things should be
The threads of this reality quickly become unseamed

All the time I’ve wasted here, this world’s yet to be redeemed
So quickly to my dreamland, that is where I’ll flee
I’ve traded my entire life for everything I’ve dreamed
The threads of this reality quickly become unseamed
