Little old man contemplates
Suicide twice a day
Life's passed him by
Little old woman scared and blind
Left alone in desperate times
Life's passed her by

(chorus)
Oh, life it's misunderstood them
So they close their eyes
And dream of better days
Oh, life it's misunderstood, yeah
Life's not always fair or so they say

Little boy with vacant eyes
Daddy won't be home tonight
And he don't know why
His mother she sits alone
Tangled in the web she's sewn
She lives lie to lie

(chorus)

Strangled, caged, left alone
Doin' time in a broken home
Feelin' left to die
I'm a product of your troubled ways
You made me what I am today
Now you're askin' why

Oh, life it's misunderstood me
So I close my eyes
And dream of better days
Oh, life it's misunderstood me
Life's not always fair or so they say

Restless soul deep inside
Searches for some piece of mind
Livin' just to die
I'm an angry man I always have
Had to fight to survive my past
Sign of these times

Life, it's misunderstood me
And I know, know you've been there too
Time lets a restless soul fade away
Life's not always fair
Life's not always fair
Or so they say

Yeah, life it's misunderstood me
So I close my eyes
And dream of a better day
Oh, life it's misunderstood me
Life's not always fair
Life's not always fair
Or so they say

Little boy with hopeful eyes
Daddy's comin' home tonight
So don't you cry
