Lyrics

Born in your tiny prison cell
A million times smaller than you are
One single drop and you’re risen up
Unafraid of the dark…

Ooooh… (x7)
Ooooh… (x7)
Whoa…

You crack up through the pavement
In super, super slow motion
Though your back is gently breaking,
You reach for the light…

Oooh… (x7)
Oooh… (x7)
Oooh-ooh-oh!

We can’t see everything
And we can’t hear everything
WE can’t see everything
We can’t hea-ear! …everything!

Weakness is not your weakness
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

You are what you grow into
You’re not what you were

Oooh… (x7)
Oooh… (x5)
Oooh-oh!
