There Has Got to Be More

I’m tired of all the fighting,
I’m tired of all the rage,
Where I keep these issues all bottled up,
So they can't bleed through to this page.                  

But I feel that I must warn,
From all those who've come before,
This program's giving nothing new, 
It’s just some norm to conform to.

But there has got to be more,
Yes there has got to be more,
There has got to be more,
To my twenties than this (2X)

Now you may think that I’m deranged,
Because I want to make a change,
But in your system I do not fit,
So consider me out, I'm done, I quit.

‘Cause there has got to be more,
Yes there has got to be more,
There has got to be more,
To my twenties than this (2X)

Than this hypocrisy, mediocrity, 
Well is this the way it’s supposed to be,
Or is there something wrong with me?
How am I to know?
‘Cause all they want is to box me in,
Ship me off so I can work for them,
But given the shape I’m in,
I think it’s time I’m letting go,
‘Cause there’s gotta be more,
Yeah there’s gotta be more. 

I'm gonna find it in the mountains, 
Or down in the turquoise streams, 
Where the girls are all bohemians, 
And nothing is as it seems.

‘Cause there has got to be more,
Yes there has got to be more,
There has got to be more,
To my twenties than this, (2X)

And I’m, I’m gonna find it, yeah.
And I’m, I’m gonna find it, yeah.
I’m gonna find it, yeah yes I am,
Yeah.
