Why does it seem to me

That this world's full of misery

And so much anxiety

So much pain inside of me

And why don't I seem to know

Just how far that I should go

In order for me to grow

How much pain should I show?

This world is full of hurt

Shit that makes us feel like dirt

Rips and tears in our shirts

I cannot hide this hurt

But then there are smiles and laughter

Things that feel like forever after

Things that make us feel not so alone

It chills me to the bone

Why does it seem to be

That I just plain cannot see

Anything that'll set me free

All I see are pain and greed

There is so much pain inside

Things we just cannot hide

Things we just can't let slide

Things we pretend not to mind

This world is full of hurt

Shit that makes us feel like dirt

Rips and tears in our shirts

I cannot hide this hurt

But then there are smiles and laughter

Things that feel like forever after

Things that make us feel not so alone

It chills me to the bone

Now this song's coming to an end

And I want you to know

You can be my friend

There are things that make this world so hard

Things that make us broken and scarred

But I know that you will never

Not ever

Be alone

This world is full of hurt

Shit that makes us feel like dirt

Rips and tears in our shirts

I cannot hide this hurt

But then there are smiles and laughter

Things that feel like forever after

Things that make us feel not so alone

It chills me to the bone
