I can't

I won't

I cant

I won't

Stop

Dream-

Ing

I don't know what

Without ink

I could be…

Nothing else I can harbor

I'm a little boy

While all my friends become fathers

Yup

Take my hand I'm the author

The literary starver

Stereotypes for your thoughts

Take my map we can charter

You dig

Starting to put the scholar back into my work

You can bet I'm much smarter

Than other work

I've always let my ego in first

Always had to be the classroom Star

Scour the years

Let the pen break here

Never wanted to be last

Although in school I barely passed

Ask me if my pen can pick it up

My grades never made the cut

Didn't see what my problem is

Now I see where my problem is

Tried to be a positive male role model

But didn't play football with the real role models

Was always digging a hole

And even now im still kicking it

Even though I'm too old to hold a bottle

Do yourself a favor and don't get introduced to that

You don't wanna get used to that

Spend these lyrics like their money

You can do that for me

Somedays aren't sunny

But it's not so hard

But it can break your heart when you try to go back

Then realize that it's not your job

Pen makes the man

Key thing you gotta understand

Youre your #1 fan

You can hear them booing from the stands

The world's out to get you

So never give it a chance

I can't

I won't

I cant

I won't

Stop

Dream-

Ing

I don't know what

Without ink

I could be…

Without ink

I could be…
