Any dolt with half a brain
Can see that humankind has gone insane
To the point where I don't know
If I'll upset the status quo
If I throw poison in the water main

Listen close to everybody's heart
And hear that breaking sound
Hopes and dreams are shattering apart
And crashing to the ground

I cannot believe my eyes
How the world's filled with filth and lies
But it's plain to see
Evil, inside of me
Is on the rise

Anyone with half a brain
Could spend their whole life
Howling in pain
The dark is everywhere
And Penny doesn't seem to care
And soon the dark in me is all that will remain

Listen close to everybody's heart
And hear that breaking sound
Hopes and dreams are shattering apart
And crashing to the ground

I cannot believe my eyes
How the world's filled with filth and lies
And it's plain to see
The evil inside of me
Is on the rise.

Penny's Version

Look around
We're living with the lost and found
Just when you thing you've almost drown
You find yourself on solid ground
And you believe there's good in everbody's heart

Keep it safe and sound
With hope you can do your part
And turn a life around

I cannot believe my eyes
Is the world finally growing wise?
'Cause it seems to me
Some kind of harmony
Is on the rise

Take it slow
He looks at me and seems to know
The things that I'm afraid to show
And suddenly I feel this glow

That I believe there's good in
Everybody's heart
If you keep it safe and sound
With hope you can do your part
And turn your life around

I cannot believe my eyes
How the world's finally growing wise
But it's plain to see
Rapture inside of me
Is on the rise

    To me, this song shows the two very different point of view's. It shows how some people see the world, as a place filled with hatred, lies, and evil. Then, it shows what other people see, the harmony, joy, wisdom, and happiness. In the movie, when they sing it, they are in different situations, but they are singing it in the same place. So that shows how close they are and how close the different point if views are too.
