Verse #1
You’ve got me caught in your groove.
I’m stuck in a file cabinet and I can’t move.
You can’t figure out where to place me.
Because I don’t have a definite identity.
I guess I have a problem with society.
But you can’t tell me who I have to be.


I’m 2017
I’m caught in between.
I’m not a kid I’m not grown up
I’m caught in between
Hey man I’m 2017.

Verse #2
Put your evil thoughts in my head.
Rumors and lies all the crap you said.
Go ahead destroy my self-esteem.
But you can’t take away my dream.
Go and spit out your words of hate.
You can’t destroy me it’s too late.


Guitar solo

Verse #3
Names, identity, money, social class.
All the old rules tied to the past.
You can be what ever you want to be.
Go and create your reality.
Get your evil thoughts out of my head.
Forget about everything society has said.
