The All-American Rejects – Real World Lyrics

I woke up on this side, I thought it was a dream

At first we learned to walk then learned to scream

You can’t understand, when you’re fed from a TV screen

You can’t see the things that I can see

But I forget, that you thank God and pray

Some things just never stay

And we all just slip away

This can’t be the real world now

I don’t believe it, when I can’t see the truth

Welcome to the real world now

The old are carried in only to poison youth

Am I, the only one who thinks it’s tragic

‘Cause I know

This can’t be the real world now

Oh no oh

Oh no oh

I look for some hope in every face there’s a vacant stare

The shadows come but no one seems to care

The darkness floods every light that could promise change

She passed sound asleep when the blood is stain

But blood is pain

Somewhere I know, that I’m not all alone

With this bated breath I hold

My lungs want to explode

This can’t be the real world now

I don’t believe it, when I can’t see the truth

Welcome to the real world now

The old are carried in only to poison youth

Am I, the only one who thinks it’s tragic

‘Cause I know

This can’t be the real world now

Oh no oh

Oh no oh

This can’t be the real world now

Oh no oh

Oh no oh

Just as soon as we see

Every flaw and every need we’ll understand

And for the first time

A child to a man says only pure words that he can

He’s too late the man he knows it he said

With all emotions set aside in a whisper say goodbye

This can’t be the real world now

I don’t believe it, when I can’t see the truth

Welcome to the real world now

The old are carried in now just to poison youth

Am I, the only one who thinks it’s tragic

‘Cause I know

This can’t be the real world now

Oh no oh

Oh no oh

This can’t be the real world now

Oh no oh

Oh no oh

This can’t be the real world

This can’t be the real world

This can’t be the real world now

Oh no oh

Oh no oh
