lyrics

I wrestle myself out of bed and for what?
The madness of the day
The push and the pulling to get what you want
But it never seems to stay

I don't care about who's in or who's out
Or who's wearing the diamond ring
I won't climb no ladder
I don't want to get to the top of anything

I don't believe it
Don't want it or need it
I guess we just didn't see it
The real world's a fake

I was brought up on TV and Ritalin
to care what the experts say
Kept distracted and entertained
So I won't get in the way

My inheritance, well it never made any sense to me
They said if you work hard and keep your head down
You can be what you want to be

I don't believe it
Don't want it or need it
I guess we just didn't see it
The real world's a fake

So sit up, keep a good look around
Is your head in the clouds? Are your feet on the ground?
Do you see the same scene that I see?
The world that we made just ain't worth believing in

I don't believe it
Don't want it or need it
I guess we just didn't see it
The real world's a fake
