  • Lyrics
  • This song is a descriptive narrative where the grittiness and misery of our reality is described in great detail in the first verse. The second verse describes a lush different reality where everything is perfect and everyone gets along with each other without any hatred or discrimination at all. The third verse goes back to our world and asks the listener which one they would prefer to live in. >>
