You're running yourself into the ground and you won't stop until youre allowed,
And who says that the world is round? it looks flat and empty to me..

It's not easy being oh so alive,
With nothing in return.

It's eating a hole through you and it's not going to stop until
You lose the fear of what is and isn't real..

You're brother is too scared to frown or to laugh to himself on the street,
But you're happy, your mind is clear as the crowd on the TV cheers.

It's not easy being oh so alive,
With nothing in return.

Expecting it all to go away but it won't and so you lie awake
at night and breathe a shallow sigh of despair.

One thing that you'll learn to hear is the frank and deafening sound,
Of people as they come too near to the fractious point of tears.

It's not easy being oh so alive,
With nothing in return.

Still they're blind to that which is dying before their eyes,
A child on broken tiles saves its mother from the grave.

It's not easy being oh so alive,
With nothing in return.

It's eating a hole through you and it's not going to stop
until you lose the fear of what is and isn't real.
