Lyrics

Oh people downcast in despair 
See the disillusion everywhere 
Hoping that their luck will change 
It’s a little harder every day 
People struggle people fight 
For the simple pleasures in their lives 
The trouble comes from everywhere 
It’s a little more than you can bear 
I know it will be hurt 
I know it will break your heart the way things are 
And the way they’ve been 
And the way they’ve always been 
People shallow self absorbed 
See the push and shove for their rewards 
With nothing nice on their minds 
You can read about it in their eyes 
People ruthless, people cruel 
The damage that some people do 
Full of hatred, full of pride 
It’s enough to make you lose your mind 

 
I know that it will hurt 
I know that it will break your heart the way things are 
And the way they’ve been 
Yeah I know that it will hurt 
I know it will hurt 
I know that it will break your heart 
The way things are and the way they’ve been 
Don’t spread discontent, don’t spread the lies 
Don’t make the same mistakes with your own life 
You know it will always come back 
Yeah, I know that it will hurt 
I know that it will hurt 
I know that it will break your heart 
The way things are and the way they’ve been 
Don’t spread discontent, don’t spread the lies 
Don’t make the same mistakes with your own life 
And don’t disrespect yourself, don’t lose your pride 
And don’t think everybody is gonna chose your side 
Oh no… Oh no… no..
