All around I see raining
Things don’t seem to go my way
Got a dark cloud that’s hanging
And it seems to follow me

Oh won’t you just wake up
feel the humming
This cruel world is killing you
better start running
Catch up with your life, catch on up
Before the whole thing is through

Have you once? Have you twice?
Have you even considered
it be really good for you
To go out and go on
take another better look around

You are just another white boy
Thinking you’re so hardcore
Take step outside see what’s shaking in the real world

Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world

But you don’t know
how my heart laments
I really got a good excuse
to complain
My parents got divorced
Can’t heal the pain

And now there is only cheap regrets
I guess that’s just the way it be
Is it the world or how I see me

Boy now you are really, really bugging
Yes you are bugging me,
can’t you just shut right up
Your cup is overflowing, overflowing
And you think it is indeed

You don’t even know what side
you are fighting for
Boy won’t you turn your game boy off
Start pretending
it’s you against the world
I am sick and I am tried of hearing
of hearing you always say

I really got a good excuse to complain
My parents got divorced
Can’t heal the pain

Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world

[ Guitar Solo ]

Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
Go take a step outside see what’s shaking in the real world
