lyrics

Oooh! I've been chasing the wind in a circle for way too long./
Been comparing my life to the legends and to the stars./
But I've learned not to buy the hype, It ain't what it seems./
These stained glass windows are selling us lies and tales of vanity./

This American Dream ain't appealing and ain't as blessed as a America seems/
And I'm starting with me.
I've been played and decieved/
into thinking that it's the standard we gotta believe/
You know, get an education. Grow up and go to college,/
graduate with honors, then get a job to fill your wallet./
Get married, raise a family, have your kids do it too/
Then when you get old and retire, whatchya gon' do? (Wooh!)/
It's all in vain, all in vain said the TEACHER!/
I would rather change a life like a preacher/
but my desires start to get mixed up with envy/
when I go on social media and start to see the blessings/
of my peers.
Who knows what they're hiding through the years/
Ain't nobody posting pictures of their doubts and their fears/ So
Jesus help me! I want to be the difference/
I don't want to be another vanity victim!/

Oooh! I've been chasing the wind in a circle for way too long./
Been comparing my life to the legends and to the stars./
But I've learned not to buy the hype, It ain't what it seems./
These stained glass windows are selling us lies and tales of vanity./

These stained glass windows are selling us lies and tales of vanity. (x4)
