about

A song about dealing with the realities of how your life changes as you get older, and the struggle to remain true to yourself.

lyrics

Way back when I was a kid
No matter what I said or did
Just couldn't get my dreams up off the ground
Though I didn't know it at the time
And I couldn't place that high pitched whine
It was my hour glass, turned upside down...

But now... that I'm older
Somehow.. life seems colder
Weight of the world... on my shoulders
You gotta go to bed early, wake up on time
Your dreams stay locked up in your mind

These Chains!
I got em wrapped around my neck
These thoughts running through my head
Sayin' act my age...

And I!
Don't wanna grow up yet
Or live without a safety net
And change...

It seemed to happen overnight,
My future was no longer bright,
As it was... When I found the scene...

No longer fresh-faced or a slob
But with bills to pay and a steady job
No longer had the time
Though now I have the means

Who knows... why it happens?
It just shows... that God is laughin',
At you and I... better stop slackin'...
Before you know it, your rent is due
Don't laugh so hard, it'll happen to you

These Chains!
I got em wrapped around my neck
These thoughts running through my head
Sayin' act my age...

And I!
Don't wanna grow up yet
Or live without a safety net
And change...

Every Day, I fight the good fight
To keep the spark, in my flash light
And every day, these thoughts seem less right
You gotta break away from your ivory towers,
Even for just a half an hour

These Chains!
I got em wrapped around my neck
These thoughts running through my head
Sayin' act my age...

And I!
Don't wanna grow up yet
Or live without a safety net
And change...

These Chains...
You gotta break those chains...
Break your chains!!!
You gotta brake
