Cruel World

Cruel World

Verse 1
Do you think the world owes you a living?
Do you think the world holds down the poor?
Well take it from me it owes you nothing,
what does it take for you to see?

Verse 2
Everyday you face these four walls.
You're living in the prison of you're own damned mind.
You say it ain't fair that you got nothing.
With that attitude you never will.

Chorus
Its a cruel world in which we're living in
and there's no hope for a man who don't fight,
in any way that he can.
Its a cruel world and who's to save you?
Its a cruel world, its a cruel, cruel world

Verse 3
So you want to make your fortune?
Well first you got to sell your soul.
Even so, it ain't that easy.
Just cause you think it, don't make it so.

Chorus
Its a cruel world in which we're living in
and there's no hope for a man who don't fight,
in any way that he can.
Its a cruel world and who's to save you?
Its a cruel world, its a cruel, cruel world

Mid
Everyday's the same and before you blink your eyes another year has passed/
When I was at school, I used to think it'd be so easy.
Living on skid row, its very soon you learn that life is hard.
Everyday's the same, but you feel a little lower.
Waking up to the day, just another boring day.
No money in your pocket, no work that you can get,
you're living your life off the state.
The people who have the jobs,
well they say that its easy enough.
They say you're just a scrounger, living it so good,
when you're living your life in disgrace.

Chorus
Its a cruel world in which we're living in
and there's no hope for a man who don't fight,
in any way that he can.
Its a cruel world and who's to save you?
Its a cruel world, its a cruel, cruel world
