How many times have you been pushed around?
Is anybody there? Does anybody care?
How many times have your friends let you down?
Is anybody there? Did anybody stare?
And how many times have your friends let you down?
Just open up your heart, just open up your mind.
And how many times has your face slipped away?
Well, is anybody safe? Does anybody pray?

Oh life, is waiting for you.
It's all messed up but we're alive.
Oh life, is waiting for you.
It's all messed up but we'll survive.
Do do dodododo do do, do do do, do do dodododo do do, do do do.

And how many days have you just slept away?
Is everybody high? Is everyone afraid?
And how many times have you wished you were strong?
Have they ever seen your heart? Have they ever seen your pain?

Oh life, is waiting for you.
It's all messed up but we're alive.
Oh life, is waiting for you.
It's all messed up but we'll survive.

She gets high, she gets lost, she gets drowned by the cops.
Twice a day, every week, and all alive.

She gets high, she gets lost, she gets drowned by the cops.
Twice a day, every week, and all alive.

Life, is waiting for you.
It's all messed but we're alive.
Oh life, is waiting for you.
It's all messed up but we'll survive.

Oh life, is waiting for you.
It's all messed but we're alive.
Oh life, is waiting for you.
It's all messed up but we're alive.
It's all messed up but we're still alive.
It's all messed up but we're all alive.
It's all messed up but I will, I will, survive.
