I crave the attention
But at night I’m all alone
Trapped in these thoughts
All my own
I’m paralyzed
I starve for salvation
But my cup is never filled
The legs beneath me won’t be still
And my mind follows

The real world is no place for a boy like me
Took off my goodie-two-shoes in exchange for a drink
With nothing left, I won’t let you see
How I’m bitter and broken and all too empty

I feed on darkness
Cause the light is just too calm
And this despair is just too fun
For me to stop
I wait for the sun to set
Cause then I’ll open wide
Let the demons all inside
To crush my soul

The real world is no place for a boy like me
Took off my goodie-two-shoes in exchange for a drink
With nothing left, I won’t let you see
How I’m bitter and broken and all too empty

And after all of this is said and done
I pray that there will be someone
To pry open my aching eyes
And give life to this heart of mine
And after all of this is said and done
I pray that there will be someone
To breathe life into this heart
That’s longing just to beat again

The real world is no place for a boy like me
Took off my goodie-two-shoes in exchange for a drink
With nothing left, I won’t let you see
How I’m bitter and broken and all too empty
The real world is no place for a boy like me
It’s taken this long, but I’m starting to see
I’m not someone that I’m proud to be
But perhaps there is some hope there for me
