What happened to all my hopes and dreams? Where did they all go? What happened to my hopeful thoughts That we could build a better world These days are filled with fear These days are filled with fear These days are filled with fear These days are filled with fear Where did all my good dreams go? This is a cold world Our ignorance has helped to create It's what we leave for our children That our selfishness has dealt their fate All this fear and war... I can't take it anymore There's gotta be a better existence than this, I know Where did all my good dreams go? These are our last days We live in fear, in fear of the unknown Never care to question the truths we're not told Nor the facts we are never shown All this fear and war... I can't take it anymore There's gotta be a better existence than this, I know Where did all my good dreams go? This is a sick world People bickering and fighting over material greed Lives lived so blindly, rather than meeting each others' needs This world has become my nightmare Nature torn down and replaced No respect for its resources We just take and take And take and take And take and take And take and take And take and take And take and take And take and take And take and take And take All this hatred, fear and war... I can't take it anymore There's gotta be a better existence than this, I know In my heart for sure What happened to my hopes and dreams? Where did they disappear? What happened to all my hopeful thoughts That we could build a better world? Where did all my good dreams go? Where did all my good dreams go? Where did all my good dreams go? Where did all my good dreams go? Where did all my good dreams go? Where did all my good dreams go? Where did all my good dreams, Where did all my good dreams go?

Fear and anxiety Tears in my eyes As the dark clouds of poison Fill the skies A nuclear error A chemical spill Once so beautiful ocean Now just another landfill And this fear in my head Is the first thought in the morning There's no future ahead For this world that slowly dies And this fear in my head It's the first thought in the morning No hope ahead Only lies We've turned our earth Into a death trap We're covered in poison It's all covered up with crap Consent by consumerism We consume their lies In fear of reality We close our eyes And this fear in my head Is the first thought in the morning There's no future ahead For this world that slowly dies And this fear in my head It's the first thought in the morning No hope ahead Only lies And this fear in my head Is the first thought in the morning There's no future ahead For this world that slowly dies And this fear in my head It's the first thought in the morning No hope ahead Only lies!

You have to, you must You have got to There's no choice but to Give in to the system You've got to conform To gain social acceptance And fit the norm Social pressure Blind obedience Public opinion Normative influences Socialisation Conformity Persuasion And marketing Social pressure? - Coerces you Blind obedience? - Who tells you to? Public opinion? - Derides you Normative influences? - To fit into Socialisation? - All around you Conformity? - Can control you Persuasion? - To belong to And marketing? - To sell you What's the price of being yourself? Social pressure? - Coerces you Blind obedience? - Who tells you to? Public opinion? - Derides you Normative influences? - To fit into Socialisation? - All around you Conformity? - Can control you Persuasion? - To belong to And marketing? - To sell you In this world that makes profit (Social pressure) Out of self-doubt, insecurity (Blind obedience) It's an act of rebellion (Public opinion) Just being yourself (Normative influences) In this world that makes profit Out of self-doubt, insecurity It's an act of rebellion Just being yourself Challenge the stereotypes. If you're not ashamed of who you are, the outsiders' opinions begin to grow mute!
