  • Walking down the street in a sea of faces
    Just trying to find out where my place is
    I swear I just don't know which way that I should go
    Sometimes I think that I just can't stand it
    Feels like a dropped in from another planet
    This world has so much madness disguised in eyes of sadness

    Truth is lost upon the masses
    People wear sunglasses in the dark
    Ice is running through their veins but I ain't taking Novocaine
    For my heart

    Why it gotta be like that?
    Why it gotta be?
    Why it gotta be like that?
    I just can't help but question why

    Somebody tell me

    Why it gotta be like that?
    Why it gotta be?
    Why it gotta be like that?
    Some dreams will live and some will die

    So many life in mental poverty
    While they watch a ? reality
    Their spirits going blind
    A vacant state of mind
    It's time the people opened up their eyes
    This revolution will be televised

    I'm gonna to find a way
    I'm praying every day

    Truth is lost upon the masses
    People wear sunglasses in the dark
    Ice is running through their veins but I ain't taking Novocaine
    For my heart

    Why it gotta be like that?
    Why it gotta be?
    Why it gotta be like that?
    I just can't help but question why

    Somebody tell me
    Why it gotta be like that?
    Why it gotta be?
    Why it gotta be like that?
    Some dreams will live and some will die

    Truth is lost upon the masses
    People wear sunglasses in the dark
    Ice is running through their veins but I ain't taking Novocaine
    For my heart

    Why it gotta be like that?
    Why it gotta be?
    Why it gotta be like that?
    I just can't help but question why

    Somebody tell me
    Why it gotta be like that?
    Why it gotta be?
    Why it gotta be like that?
    Some dreams will live and some will die
