THEY TOLD YOU

from by The Shark

lyrics

wake up early
hungover from the night before
go to school or work

Lately feeling so
worn out from the days gone by
the weeks the years that slip on by

so what is it that compels us as
we push along the path we cut
from the wilderness of existence

and I know know it's hard,
it's hard to do the same thing every day
it's hard to make your life
it's supposed to be so

If they told you that it would be easy
If they told you that it would cost next to nothing and
If they told you that you’re something special
They sold you

Paint a picture
Take a photograph of that
Write a song, or a rap

What you’re after
doesn’t come as easily as that
And I know I know I know I know

I’ve seen the face, the smiling ones that
preach that everything you want will
come to you and all you have to do

is sit and wait... they tell you everything
is planned out in advance and
nothing that you do will matter

If they told you that it would be easy
If they told you that it would cost next to nothing and
If they told you that you’re something special
They sold you

Turn the lights off
lay your head down and relax
you’ve at least earned that

cause it’s hard and it’s cold and there’s no one to
help you along
to tell you when you’re wrong
when you’re alone
you’re alone
