You wanna learn something about yourself?
You're more powerful than you could ever imagine
Did you ever have a new idea?
Did you ever seek a new frontier?
Did you ever try to question something
Invent something, create something?
Did you notice how they keep you down
Friends shove your mind into the ground
"You can't do it!" they scream 'cuz your ideas are
So unique they make them look weak Just think for yourself. Think for yourself
Think for yourself, be divergent, be divergent
Think for yourself. Don't be like everyone else
Think for yourself, be divergent, be divergent Hey, you have to conform
Fit in, be average, worship the norm
Go with the flow like everyone else
And you can be popular just don't be yourself
If you had dreams, sink 'em in the deep end
Dream if you want, but only when you're sleepin'
In the real world, you wanna get by,
Live your life as a lie and forget that you can fly Yeah, you wanna be accepted, right?
So you crush your own mind without even a fight
You put your dreams on the shelf
And you wake up each day pretending to be someone else
I'm not sayin' don't be polite
But don't let the masses burn out your heart light
You've got one life to live as YOU
Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do All this time, they told you be yourself
But then they scold you when you're not like everyone else
It's all illusion their expectations are so unkind
Don't let them silence your beautiful mind It's time to throw off those mental chains
Be strange be the change you want to see in the world
That's what Gandhi said with a gun to his head
But he didn't back down and he didn't give in
He was true to his dreams, strength from within
Said no to authority persecution
And ignited a global peace revolution One day at a time
Don't listen to those who try to get you down
Don't surrender to hopelessness and helplessness
You are a divine being! We all have the power of global transformation
But systems of control don't want you to stumble upon that realization
They know that if you discover who you truly are
You might just go too far And be divergent
