Paint me a picture, show me a glimpse
Of the world you live in.
Carve me a sculpture, write me a verse
show me a glimpse of the world you live in
For the colours seem brighter, the days seem lighter
In th world you live in.

My world is black and grey
Troubles ev'ry step of the way
Heartache, strife ev'ry single day
Too many debts and bills to pay

I wanna be a child again
I didn't have no worries then
Growin up it ain't no fun
Cos noone gets out alive
and evryone waitin to die
and noones on your side
then your grown
and alone.

And you can't tell me there's nothin wrong
In a world where nobody belongs
Where evryone fights for a bit of space
And we cut off our heads to spite our face
I don't wanna be in the human race
Cos the whole damn thing is a fucking disgrace!

I wanna be a child again
I didn't have no worries then
Growin up it ain't no fun
Cos noone gets out alive
and evryone waitin to die
and noones on your side
then your grown
and alone.

And you don't get it cos you don't see
Beyond your rose-tinted fantasy
Into this hellish reality
Where there ain't no birds singin in the trees

Cos the trees are dead from polluted fumes
And the birds are encased in concrete tombs
And the shadows of the buildings throw the land in gloom
And the air is laden with the smoggy smell of doom

I wanna be a child again
I didn't have no worries then
Growin up it ain't no fun
Cos noone gets out alive
and evryone waitin to die
and noones on your side
then your grown
and alone.

And noone gets out alive
And evrybody's grown
And
alone.
