I woke up on this side, I thought it was a dream
At first we learned to walk then learned to scream
You can't understand when you're fed from a TV screen
You can't see the things that I can see

But I forget that you thank God and pray
Somethings just never stay and we all just slip away

This can't be the real world now
I don't believe it when I can't see the truth
Welcome to the real world now
When all our carried in now just to poison you

Am I the only one who thinks it's tragic?
'Cause I know this can't be the real world now, no oh, no oh

I look for some hope, in every face that has a vacant stare
The shadows come but no one seems to care
The darkness floods every light that can promised change
She passed sound asleep when the blood is stain, the blood is pain

Somewhere I know that I'm not all alone
This painted breath I hone, my lungs want to explode

This can't be the real world now
I don't believe it when I can't see the truth
Welcome to the real world now
When all our carried in now just to poison you

Am I the only one who thinks it's tragic?
'Cause I know this can't be the real world now, no oh, no oh
This can't be the real world now, no oh, no oh

Just as soon as we see every ploy in every mean
We'll understand before the first time

Child to a man says only real words that he can
It's too late to smell the roses
When all emotion's set aside, in a whisper say goodbye

This can't be the real world now
I don't believe it when I can't see the truth
Welcome to the real world now
When all our carried in now just to poison you

Am I the only one who thinks it's tragic?
'Cause I know this can't be the real world now, no oh, no oh
This can't be the real world now, no oh, no oh

This can't be the real world
This can't be the real world
This can't be the real world now, no oh, no oh
