REALITY

VERSE 1
Here we go from boy to boy to boy
Boy to boy to boy
?Til the music stops and we?re all alone
A wordless play on an empty stage

CHORUS
How many times can a heart be broken
How far and wide can a mind be open
How many lies need to be spoken
?Til reality kicks in
Reality kicks in

VERSE 2
Here we go from toy to toy to toy
Toy to toy to toy
?Til the money stops and everything?s gone
A mindless game for an empty brain

CHORUS
How many times can a heart be broken
How far and wide can a mind be open
How many lies need to be spoken
?Til reality kicks in
Yeah reality kicks in

BRIDGE
Merry-go-round
Where does it stop
It feels so good but hurts so bad
We all fall down
Shop ?til we drop
But there?s a better way
Yeah there?s a better path

CHORUS
How many times can a heart be broken
How far and wide can a mind be open
How many lies need to be spoken
?Til reality kicks in
Yeah reality kicks in
