Angry Young Man

He lived too long by the standards of the others
Was bound by the rules the not-so-certain make
Given half a chance to find his destiny
To find a purpose in life unique to him

Chorus
Angry young man
Searched the whole world over
Always looking back over his shoulder
Angry young man
Has proven his case
He had all the answers in the first place
Angry young man
Has pushed the walls down
Running wild on the strength he has found

He knows that time is far too precious to waste
On a tragedy known as conformity
A restless soul with so much to give and share
The wait is over; his turn has arisen

Chorus
Angry young man
Searched the whole world over
Always looking back over his shoulder
Angry young man
Has proven his case
He had all the answers in the first place
Angry young man
Has pushed the walls down
Running wild on the strength he has found

Refrain
And day by day, his confidence would grow
To mark the passing of his former self
And day by day, his emotions would show
The zest for life he had hid deep down inside

Chorus 2x
Angry young man
Searched the whole world over
Always looking back over his shoulder
Angry young man
Has proven his case
He had all the answers in the first place
Angry young man
Has pushed the walls down
Running wild on the strength he has found
