lyrics

I hear a lot of folks they saying every day
that they got problems and there's no way
but if we'd step back and unfocus our stare
we'd see our struggles just don't compare
to the Lostboys, walking with no hope
to all them treading water, who don't get thrown no rope
so what your wage is low and your car won't start
the rent's too high, a girl broke your heart

hey c'mon get real
you're coming home to a hot meal
so quit your moaning with a roof over your head
be grateful instead

I hear a lot of folks they saying every night
at the end of the road they just can't see the light
but if we'd break from the daily grind
new paths appear they come to free our mind
we'd conquer our fears by learning something new
and we could see our troubles just ain't true
so what your wage is low and your car won't start
the rent’s too high, a girl broke your heart

hey c'mon get real
you're coming home to a hot meal
so quit your moaning with a roof over your head
be grateful instead, yeah

cause I seen how they live in Bolivia
they work all day, a dollars what they giving ya
I'm blessed and I'm cursed to be from this country
but after seeing that shit I feel lucky
in the City of God where I bought cocaine
I saw war, I saw pain
now when problems come and show their faces
I only kneel down to tighten my laces

hey c'mon get real
you’re coming home to a hot meal
so quit your moaning with a roof over your head
be grateful instead, yeah
