Here is the world they'll try to sell you
Here is the ache barbiturate
They'll have your eyes and they will hang your view
So high
Minus the world we'd find forgiveness
Minus the world she'd find herself
Minus the walls, she wouldn't hang her view
So low

White of their eyes
Shadow and plague
Those creatures we portray
Born into this
Unbearable mess
This bankruptcy they and I have left

Paradox, conundrum, irony

Minus need you are going cold
Minus belief we are growing old

Minus our fears she is outspoken
Minus our hands she is clean

Budding filth, we destroy purity once conceived

Sorrow and shame
Tangled and maimed
Indebted endlessly
Heir to the day
Of depravity
She'll have to make believe tranquility
Minus the world we leave

    General CommentNewly born kids are pure. This world is not. Expect man-made problems at birth and then the rest of your life. This song simply states that this fact of life will make many of us feel bad. That's the short simple version of it anyway and of course only my view. Peace!

    General CommentWhat I think about this song:
    He might be talking about a specific girl, or he may just be talking about life in general. And I think he's talking about why she thinks to lowly of the world, and life. I also think he's talking about what a shitload society is these days. Whatever he means, it's well said and I enjoy it.

    General CommentI've always thought this was written about his daughter. It's about the world that his generation is leaving for the next, and the subsequent/predestined misfortune that his daughter will endure because of their actions/inaction.
