Intro:  RF1 x4
Verse w/RF1
They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told you
And the least they ever gave you 
Was the most you ever knew
Chorus w/RF2
And I wonder where these dreams go 
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming
No one's listening anyway
RF1 x2
Verse 2 w/RF1
Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father
'Cause she's got nowhere to go
Chorus w/RF2
And she wonders where these dreams go
'Cause the world got in her way
What's the point ever trying
Nothing changing anyway
RF1 x2
Verse 3 w/RF1
They press their lips against you
And you love the lies they say
And I tried so hard to reach you
But you’re falling anyway
Chorus w/RF2
And you know I see right through you
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all the screaming
You're not listening anyway
RF x2
End on G
