Alec Benjamin - 1994 Lyrics




This is where I broke my wrist
Where I thought I could fly
Thinking I was Superman
So you know you can't cry
Cause I wanted to be just like them
And save my city from crime
I wanted to be just like them, just like them, just like, them

Campbell's chicken noodle soup
When you stay home from school
Remember watching MTV
When there was still music for you
Just a kid on Cholla Street
From my city built in the sand
My father said "you'll be a man, be a man, be a man"

I was born in 1994
I was born in 1994
I was, I was born
In 1994

I guess Santa Claus is just not real
And Batman can't fly
And nobody's invincible
Because I know people die
I saw it on the news one day
When the towers fell down
September's not the same place now
Same place now, same place, now

Now tell me what you wanna be
Because you grow up too fast
I'll cut my hair and sag my jeans
And never show up to class
Get ready cause it's time to leave
So pack up your bags
And go be who you wanna be, wanna be, wanna be

I was born in 1994
I was born in 1994
I was, I was born
In 1994

My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty
My country tis of thee, be who you wanna be
My country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty
My country, my country, my country, my...

I was born in 1994
I was born in 1994
I was, I was born
In 1994

    I like this song

  7. To Rei

    Alec Benjamin creats the best Songs in this world I hear them my whole life and I always remeber to one of the saddest moments in my life

  8. Dipity Art

    The only bad thing about his songs, is that they end.

  9. Still Dya

    I'm I the only one thinking that 1994, Gabriel, iiksfy, bitb and doah are related?

    Lemme explain myself.

    He was young and he was bullied because he thought that he was a super hero (BITB ) but one day, he broke his wrist (1994) by trying to fly and realized that he was not a hero and that it doesn't exist and a part of him died this day (DOAH). And he met this girl (Annabelle's homework) that was constantly using him and he didn't mind (use me). When he realised that being used was not fair but he kept on loving her and waiting for her while she was going through phases (water fountain) he decided to change himself for her and maybe tempted to suicide (IIKSFY). But he realised that nomatter how hard he tries, he's always gonna remain the same (Gabriel). And through all of this, his sister was still here, helping and loving him (IWHEO). And he went so deep in his sadness that this deepness turned to something high and inspiring for him (JTTLPOE).

    It ends up being almost all of his songs related. And I just realized it.

    Or maybe I should just sleep at 1am instead of listening to his all songs...

  10. • b e e •

    My country tis of thee
    Sweet land of liberty
    Of thee I sing
    Land where my fathers died
    Land of the pilgrims pride
    From every mountain side
    Let freedom ring..

    Who else has sung this?

  11. Daniel Storey

    My country tis of thee, unfathomable stupidity

  12. Part of Everything & Nothing.

    12 - 4 - 1994. Anyone? 😊

    @Alec Benjamin ,
    CEO of the NWO,

    1994 would have made you.. 6-7.. 7.
    Just old enough to watch the drops. 🗿
    You're near the cutoff of the age group
    of humans who.. could process the event live broadcast.

    So there would be a number, a limit, a cliff, loosely defined demographic that I could safely say didn't comprehend the event as it took place. 🗿You follow ?

    Everyone born.. after ~95' is another
    age group in terms of awareness.
    119 - ~95 = ~24 🤔... -6 = 18 🤨
    Everyone alive during the event,
    can now vote.
    The adults ~24 with college ~degrees
    are coming to power $$$.🗿🗿🗿

    Bringing home the baKon. MaKing banK.
    This would make the time
    preceding the 2020 election,
    or the 2024 election,
    to be the perfect window,
    the timing for SHTF ? 🌀

    I have been waiting for SHTF2
    since SHTF1 🗿 18 years ago,
    and it hasn't happened yet. 🗿
    Be advised: I'm warming-up 2020.
    2020 is going to be a hot year,
    and if not, 2024 will be hotter 🌋
