This man, this man’s a vain man. Is there one honest man anywhere?
Give me a kind of reason; just want one reason why I should care.
But he’s only a child. Young hearts run free and wild.
It’s only your life; they say that’s all you need.
They give you no choice in the real world.
In the real world we’re all of us in good care – everywhere.
We’re all there.

Drink this; drink from the chalice, wash out that malice from your veins.
We want, we want better things, expecting better things from you, boy.
But it’s only a game. I know you don’t play games.
It was only a joke. It’s alright for some.
They’re blind, deaf and dumb in the real world.
In the real world we’re all of us in good care – everywhere.
We’re all there.

But I’ve thrown it away. Someone will have to pay.
You just won’t give an inch. You know that’s all I need.
You leave me no choice. I’m left with no choice.
I’m left with sod all in the real world.
In the real world we’re all of us in good care – everywhere.
We’re all there.
