Building Me Down

You keep building me down
Bulldozing through my dreams
Tied to the ground
Deflating all my schemes
There's safety in mediocrity
Fame gives you a fright
Safety in mediocrity
Afraid I'll shine my light

I - I - I - I'm a dam about to burst
I'm breaking from the herd
Gonna show you all I'm worth
Yes, I - I - I - I am pushing past these bars
Stretching out my arms
Until I reach the stars

You keep building me down
Bulldozing through my dreams
Tied to the ground
Deflating all my schemes
There's safety in mediocrity
Fame gives you a fright
Safety in mediocrity
Afraid I'll shine my light

I - I - I - I will not remain contained
I'm breaking away these chains
Unleashing a hurricane
Yes, I - I - I - I am blasting out of glide
Kick that throttle wide
Explode into overdrive

You can't hold me back
You can't keep me down
You can't make me feel like a helpless clown
You can play it safe
You can play it scared
You can run away from every dare

But I'm going to fight
I'm going to win
Even if I'm knocked down again and again
I know who I am
I know that I'm strong
And I'll be sitting at the top . . . where I belong
Because I'm strong

So stop building me down!
