We Are Not The Same

I paid the price you couldn't
I accepted the truths that you wouldn't
Look at you and look at me
We are not the same

I talk the talk and walk the walk
I am everything you wish you were
You burn with envy
And I fan the flames
We are not the same

When you see me
You see everything you're not
And never were
I do the things you can't
And never could
We are not the same

I am everything I want to be
And when you look in the mirror
You see that you're not
Look at you and look at me
We are not the same

How To Beat The System

If you can't explain something in a few words, then you probably don't understand it that well.  Here are a few words on how to beat the system:

Do only things you love doing
And don't stop
Don't even slow down
Or you will be reduced
To a cog
In a dysfunctional machine
Which doesn't care about you
And when you die
Will replace you
As though you never existed
Your only hope is to find
What you love 
And keep doing it
That's the only way
To beat the system
That's the only way
To elevate yourself
Above being a cog
In a dysfunctional machine
Find what you love
And keep doing it
