Lyrics

PJ:
BRIGHT IDEAS? BRIGHT IDEAS?
I GOT A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS AND BRIGHT IDEAS.
BRIGHT IDEAS? BRIGHT IDEAS?
I'VE GOT A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS AND BRIGHT IDEAS.

UNREALIZED POTENTIAL
IS THE CHEAPEST COMMODITY ON THE PLANET.
I'M SURE I COULD BE INFLUENTIAL
BUT I DON'T THINK THE PUBLIC COULD STAND IT.
IMAGINE IF EVERYONE HEARD MY BEATS.
THEY ALL START TAKING TO THE STREETS.
AND THEN OF COURSE THEY'D HAVE TO MOVE YOUR FEET.
FROM THE POOREST OF THE POOR TO THE MOST ELITE.
I COULD BE THE DJ. I COULD BE A STAR.
I COULD HAVE A FANCY HOUSE AND A FANCY CAR.
PEOPLE LIKE TO SAY THAT I WON'T GET FAR
BUT THEY ARE JUST WRONG WITH A CAPITAL R

COURTNEY:
BRIGHT IDEAS BRIGHT IDEAS?
I GOT A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS AND BRIGHT IDEAS.
BRIGHT IDEAS BRIGHT IDEAS?
I GOT A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS AND BRIGHT IDEAS.
THIS IS THE CLOSEST THING I HAVE TO HOME.
I'VE NEVER BEEN TO PARIS NEVER BEEN TO ROME.
SOUTHEAST PORTLAND IS ALL I'VE EVER KNOWN. BUT I'M JUST HAPPY NOT TO BE ALONE.
MY LIFE IS HARD BUT IS NOT MONOTONE.
GLAD THAT I'M NOT LIVING IN A FOSTER HOME.
COUNTING ALL MY BLESSINGS WITH A FINE TOOTH COMB.
AND WHEN I'M GROWN,
I WON'T BE DRINKING OUT OF STYROFOAM.

MATILDA:
BRIGHT IDEAS, BRIGHT IDEAS?
I'VE GOT A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS AND BRIGHT IDEAS.
I'M NEW TO THE STREETS, I HAVEN'T BEEN HERE LONG.
I DON'T PLAN ON STAYING BUT I HAVE TO BE STRONG.
I KNOW I CAN FIND A BRIGHTER DAY
WITHOUT THAT ASSHOLE HUSBAND GETTING IN MY WAY.
IT'S KIND OF LIKE A STRANGE SCREEN PLAY BUT, HEY,
I DON'T EXPECT A HERO TO SAVE THE DAY OR PAY MY WAY. THIS HOMELESSNESS IS JUST A LITTLE FOREPLAY
TO PREP ME FOR MY ESSAY ABOUT SOCIAL DECAY.
Is that ok?

ELDER:
BRIGHT IDEAS, BRIGHT IDEAS?
I'VE GOT A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS AND BRIGHT IDEAS.
I'VE BEEN OUT HERE FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
I'M NOT VERY GOOD AT MAKING RHYMES.
BUT IF I HAD A NICKEL OR A DIME FOR EVERY TIME
I'VE BEEN ACCUSED OR THE VICTIM OF A CRIME.
I'D BE A RICH MAN LIVING IN MY PRIME.
INSTEAD OF DEALING WITH THE TROUBLES ON MY MIND.
IN THE MEANTIME, LIFE IS ABOUT AS SWEET AS A LIME.
