looking back upon past decisions,
and the broken promises i made,
this leads me to question myself,
seeing now have i really changed,
from that oh so frightened child,
who first stepped unto the world,
only to be knocked back again,
i still remember the way it hurt,
to be broken before i had begun,
to try to make my way outside,
thrown into a world of hatred,
my future's not mine to decide,
shattered on the rocks of life's,
bitter task of unfair retribution,
to be embittered against reality,
but to stop short of revolution,

can this world really be as bad as it seems?
you tell me all my dreams so hard to acheive,
did i really become all that i could have been?
or could i ever achieve the life of my dreams?

shattered before my first steps,
into this world based on greed,
and born with it instilled into me,
to feel the hate which they feed,
i just wish someone would show,
me just what was meant for me,
and throw some light down here,
to show me what i'm meant to be,
so now i'm living without purpose,
so inside i know this can't be me,
someone to show me i deserve,
to bear my grudge against society,
and shattering the rotten facade,
that shows up the design of me,
to tell myself that i can become,
anything that i might try to be!

can this world really be as bad as it seems?
you tell me all my dreams so hard to acheive,
did i really become all that i could have been?
or could i ever achieve the life of my dreams?

and so what am i missing, deep within,
what's not there that should have been,
and so what's not there that i'm missing,
and seeing what a hateful world this is,
and can you live with the lives you lead?
can you live now you stole my dreams?
can you live now i'm crying on my knees?
can this world really be as bad as it seems?

can this world really be as bad as it seems?
you tell me all my dreams so hard to acheive,
did i really become all that i could have been?
or could i ever achieve the life of my dreams?
