Rising with the sun again. Gotta get up and out on time.
From the start to the end, workin’ hard and barely gettin’ by.
Sometimes I just wanna quit, give up, not give a damn,
But I’m tied down to it, the “universal scam.”
They use me, abuse me, won’t give me my way.
Pushing for, demanding more, I hide the core away.
Sacrifice my Sacred Dream, forget myself, give to the team
There’s nothing left anyway, I already gave it all away.
There’s never any time for me. No time to grow or just to be.
I gotta work all the time, erase the guilt that’s planted in my mind.
Born free but taxed to death, I can’t seem to get ahead.
The more I work, the less I get. I never get my needs fed.
Un-engage, embrace the change and rearrange my goal.
It’s over time, step out of line and redefine my role.
I’m takin’ back my Sacred Dream. I know you know what I mean, now.
Can’t keep me down anymore. Just watch me, I’m gonna soar!
Gonna be who I wanna be now, listen to my heart from now on.
You’d better make time for you, or you’ll be singing this song!
There’s a reason I was put here. I got a gift that only I can give.
Nobody’s gonna interfere. Without my dream, I WON’T LIVE!
Got self-esteem, it’s now mainstream, my Sacred Dream, my way!
Take the word of what you’ve heard and undeterred, your way.
Take back your Sacred Dream. I know you know what I mean, now.
Take back your Sacred Dream. It’s YOUR Sacred Dream.
