  • He's in a world of his own
    He's in a world of his own
    He'd like the time to play with his mind
    He'd like the time to go
    He sees the things that pass him by
    And the things that he never owned
    Everyone has and he has not
    So he lives in a world of his own

    He cries, he lies
    He's cool, he's kind
    He heads out on a Friday night,
    He gets drunk and he starts a fight
    And he loses his mind
    And he loses his sight
    Because times are hard
    And money is tight
    Because he has the pressure
    He has the blame
    Life never changes
    Forever the same

    He's in a world of his own
    He has a child but he doesn't know
    He wanted love, so he loved himself
    And he's at an all-time low
    He's in a world of his own
    He's in a hell of his own
    He watches the clock and watches the time
    Watches life slip by on the assembly line
    And the youth he's never known

    He cries, he lies
    He's cool, he's kind
    He heads out on a Friday night,
    He gets drunk and he starts a fight
    And he loses his mind
    And he loses his sight
    Because times are hard
    And money is tight
    Because he has the pressure
    He has the blame
    Life never changes
    Forever the same

    Forever the same
    Forever the same
