lyrics

The world's not a simple place to live
Though some of us will tell you that it is.
It's "eat, sleep, work" and then repeat and don't forget to give.
But the world's not a simple place to live.

And the world's not an honest place to live
I mean honestly, did you really think that it is?
You can do your best, but it's useless if it's not lucrative.
Oh the world's not an honest place to live.

They'll tell you one thing, but learn to read their mind.
Don't become too confident, you know the narcissistic kind.
"We don't need authentic, the same old narrative is fine."
'Cause the world's not a simple place to live.

No the world's not easy for you and I.
But it's easy to start wondering why.
Why you dot your I's and cross your T's and keep praying to the sky.
But the world's not easy for you and I.

And the world's not forgiving to you or I
But I'll forgive you if you were lead to believe in that lie.
You do what you're told, when you're told
Yeah you're just trying to get by, oh dry your eyes, just dry your eyes.
'Cause the world's not forgiving to you or I.

They'll tell you one thing, but learn to read their mind.
Don't become too confident, you know the narcissistic kind.
"We don't need authentic, the same old narrative is fine."
'Cause the world's not a simple place to live.

And if you thought this isn't what you signed up for.
You've been a fool, this world is cruel, am I the first to tell you this?
This unforgiving, dishonest place is as hard as it is complex.
It's inconsistent, bruised and broke, and people are full of shit.
They'll lead you on, entirely wrong, but they're not a better fit
For this empty, violent, fucked up world that we're all living in.

No the world's just not any place to live.
