Got you working the nine-to-five
Well every day
It's all you can do just to stay alive
Wasting your time away
There's got to be a better way

Living life in the real world
Well it's an uphill climb
Living life in the real world
Time after time, they knock you down
You gotta get up, you gotta live your life in the real world

With every second it slips away
It's getting harder to see
How you can be the best that you can be
Wasting your time away
There's got to be a better way


Nobody ever told you it would be like this in the real world
Fame and fortune's nothing but a hit-and-miss
When you realize 
You're living in the real world

[Chorus: x 2]

Life in the real world
