Criteria - Prevent The World lyrics

i'm stuck in a basement world, where even if i tried
to make rock my living, it wouldn't coincide
So how will i reconcile six years of life with the rational urges
well i still stay home

you're preventing the world from hearing my songs
imagine if the world could get behind it
the combined strength would propell us all
and release us from our stilted social norms

i'm believing, what i'm feeling yeah is finally coming true
right now to forever, the rest is up to you
so don't lay cold
they force you to make a choice but you dont have to choose
social norms engrave the way but you can bend the rules
(who am i?)the choice you make but not because its cool:

theres a better way, we all want you to know
