We live in a world where good things cause pain
Where we are given so many choices and told to refrain
I just don’t understand
We live in a world where differences get kids picked on
Where will and tempers are no longer kept very long
Where as soon as we feel love and attachment, it’s gone
I just don’t understand
We live in a world where colons aren’t English but faces
Where emotions are cons that can be represented in any place
where we can complain endlessly to others without meeting a gaze
Where there doesn’t have to be dinner or foreplay to get to third base
I just don’t understand
We live in a world where we can state facts based on nothing
Where it’s seconds nature to speak to someone’s face while bluffing
Where people starve and we have fourths on the Thanksgiving stuffing
Where a kid wants to settle things man to man but then the adults rush in
I just don’t understand
We live in a world where people pretend to care in order to advance their way
Where people puff others up and lie for money every single day
Where sexual desire is glamorized on the tv shows we play
Where having a plant can get you euthanized or forever put away
Where people take their own lives because they are colorblind by gray
Now I understand
