lyrics

in my own little world:

in real life - life is hard
no matter who you are
it's gonna beat you up
and leave you with the scars

in real life people suck
and there's no such thing as love
there ain't no happy end
and you know the bad guys won
…uhh..

"in real life" is a song
i make my living on
but no one knows the words
so they don't sing along

in real life there's no time
and no reason to the rhyme
you can never scratch the itch
real life's a bitch and then you die

that's why i spend every second of every day
hey - hey

in my own little world
all the playboys and the party-girls
in their own little worlds

in real life there's no god
and when you're gone you're gone
your prayers will not be heard
and no one rights the wrong

in real life children starve
and people sleep in cars
and we say we'll change the world
but we end up at the bar

that's why i spend every second of every day
hey - hey

in my own little world
all the choirboys and the working girls
in their own little worlds
in my own little world
all the killjoys and the flower girls
in their own little worlds

in real life i don't know
if i can go back home
in real life i messed up
and that's why i'm alone

in my own little world
all the boy-toys and the pinup girls
in their own little worlds
in my own little world
all the cowboys and the chorus girls
in their own little worlds
in my own little world
all the game boys and the valley-girls
in their own little worlds
in my own little world
all the homeboys and the fly girls
in their own little worlds
all the beach-boys and the material girls
in their own little worlds
in my own little world
