It’s the miracle child on the miracle mile.
He was quiet and mild til your words turned him wild.
He’s the miracle boy with the miracle toy.
He is gonna destroy all your comfortable ways.
Fix you under his gaze. Drag you out of your haze.
Lift you out of the maze. He will teach you to fly,
Live in the sky.

Na na na na na, na na na na na na.

When I’m up on the stage all the people start screaming.
They remember the day they forgot to start dreaming.
As I’m spittin’ the truth all the ladies start crying.
They’re aware that their youth and potential are dying.
We’re the fortunate few. We got something to do.
We got something to say. We will show you the way.
Take you away.

Na na na na na, na na na na na na.

When I beat on the snare it is like an explosion
People share their despair in a rare male emotion.
When I hit the guitar ladies rise to the ceiling
Like a gift from the stars, a horizon of feeling.

We’re the dreamers who dare. We’re the suckers who care.
We will never give in. We won’t stop til we win.
We got demons to spare. We are hyperaware.
Lift you out of your chair. Knock you right down the stairs.
We have barely begun. Gonna shine like the sun.
Blow your mind like a star when you learn who you are.
Take you so far!

The sound we play will show you the way.
Just close your eyes and let your body sway. Come fly with us today.
The you you were’s still living inside.
So see the show, forget the things you know: our words make you wise.

You’re gonna be a new kind of wise.
And soon you’ll see with different eyes what’s real. We’ll show you how to feel.
The song we sing is healing the world.
The time has come to know the truth,
To free yourself, to feel your youth.
To help the old world disappear,
To steer to the shining frontier,
Be what you fear.

Cast your eyes to the stage. We’re reflecting your rage.
Dreams ‘ll never get cold. They were made for the bold.
Feel the rumble inside. It will never subside.
Push you on to the train. Drive it into your brain.
We are shining a light. We are splitting the night.
We are ending the fright. We will not be polite.
We’re defining the fight. See us ignite.

Na na na na na, na na na na na na.
