  This is what it's like

You take the first step out of your room

And the next leads you into the street

Where the people you see and the people you meet

Are the people you leave and you leave and you leave

You've tried to get by and fade into the night

The smiles you see are trying to say

We've been watching you and we don't like what we see

But you're too far into this now and you wanted to know

Is this what it's like to be and to be

  When everyone else is just trying to speak

You hold that glazed look in your eye

Well you're trying to lie

"Yes I'm doing alright it's just a bit of a phase"

When you wake up you'll feel like you're making a hit
