You can watch the lyrics video here.

"My name is Bettina Dolinsek and I was born blind. Growing up blind, you were not expected to...to do much and I wanna be expected to do what everybody else is expected to do. I've always loved athletics, I've always wanted to be part of a team. The only modification that has been made is in demonstrating how to do it...so showing me exactly what the move looks like, instead of doing it visually, I do it tactiley.

-It's definitely close...
-How high would you say...ish. Like to your body?
-Waist
-Waist? Okay.
-Waist level. OK. So I'm going for...
-Take a wild stab at it.
-...bench/table.
-You think it's a bench?
-Ah, likely.
-Wanna see? I wanna see.
-Okay.

It's not a matter of enjoying it more or less, it's about enjoying it differently, you know? It's enjoying it through...through different vision, through another lens."

Run away with me
Lost souls in revelry
Running wild and running free
Two kids, you and me

And I said hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we're renegades
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we're renegades
Renegades, renegades

Long live the pioneers
Rebels and mutineers
Go forth and have no fear
Come close and lend an ear

And I said hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we're renegades
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we're renegades
Renegades, renegades

So, all hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws
Spielbergs and Kubricks

It's our time to make a move
It's our time to make amends
It's our time to break the rules
Let's begin...

And I said hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we're renegades
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we're renegades
Renegades, renegades.
