People say we got it made
Don't they know we're so afraid  Isolation 
We're afraid to be alone  Everybody got to have a home

 Everybody trying to put us down

I don't expect you, to understand  After you caused so much pain
But then again, you're not to blame 
You're just a human, a victim of the insane 

We're afraid of everyone  Afraid of the sun
The sun will never disappear
But the world may not have many years
