I met a prophet dark as the night She could see into my soul Said she’d been watching and had some advice She said shadows make you whole A life without pain is a wolf in sheep’s clothes Cause if you listen to the lessons that it holds You’ll find the gold Child its time to break the shell Life’s gonna hurt but its meant to be felt You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself You cannot fly until you break the shell I can remember when I was a child How the grown folks seemed so crazy Why are they so angry, why are they so loud? And when I grow up that’s never ever gonna be me That was the moment that I decide That I would build a wall just shy of six feet tall Too strong to fall Child its time to break the shell Life’s gonna hurt but its meant to be felt You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself You cannot fly until you break the shell Courage is not being hard It’s time to peel back all of the layers You put between who you’re meant to be And you who are And go be who you are So much disappointment to finally understand That there is no such thing as perfect Were all simply doing the best that we can And we have a choice to live or truly be alive This is your life Child its time to break the shell Life’s gonna hurt but its meant to be felt You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself You cannot fly until it breaks the shell Child its time to break the shell Life’s gonna hurt but its meant to be felt You cannot touch the sky from inside yourself The bird cannot fly until it breaks the shell Do with these words what you will Its time for us to be for real You’ll be stuck on the ground until You finally break the shell
