  • We the people fight for our existence
    We don't claim to be perfect but we're free
    We dream our dreams alone with no resistance
    Fading like the stars we wish to be

    Why know I didn't mean what I just said
    But my God woke up on the wrong side of His bed
    And it just don't matter now

    As little by little we gave you everything you ever dreamed of
    Little by little the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off
    Little by little you have to give it all in all your life
    And all the time I just ask myself why you're really here ?

    True perfection has to be imperfect
    I know that that sounds foolish but it's true
    Day has come, now you'll have to accept
    Life inside your head we give to you

    Why know I didn't mean what I just said
    But my God woke up on the wrong side of His bed
    And it just don't matter now

    As little by little we gave you everything you ever dreamed of
    Little by little the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off
    Little by little you have to give it all in all your life
    And all the time I just ask myself why you're really here ?

    Little by little we gave you everything you ever dreamed of
    Little by little the wheels of your life have slowly fallen off
    Little by little you have to give it all in all your life
    And all the time I just ask myself why you're really here ?
    Why am I really here ?
    Why am I really here ?
