The world is full of people who want
to hurt you.
To stick out a hand
and pull it right back.
The world is full of people who want
to hurt you.
They've been tortured and scared
since the day they were born.

I wonder how it feels to hate
so much.
I wonder how it feels to hate
your guts.

The world is full of people who want
to hurt you.
Stuff your message of love
up the ends of the guns.
The world is full of people who will
desert you.
Take a good look around
they're not to be found.

I wanna keep you safe and sound
from them.
I wanna keep the world from
crashing in.

The world is full of people who want
to hurt you.

Broken arms all in a row
There's someone there to grow.
Don't wanna hurt you.
Hit you, hate you, bend you, break you
anyway they can.
They'd like to hurt you.
Laugh about it, shout about it, doubt it all you want:
They want to hurt you.
Don't you understand?
They want to hurt you.
I'll stop them if I can,
won't let them hurt you.

The world is full of people who...
The world is full of people who...
The world is full of people who...

    General CommentI love this song!
    It's heart-wrenchingly sweet...
    It sounds like he's singing to a baby and telling them that yes, the world *is* a horrible place but I will do whatever I can to keep you safe from it.
