World Of Make Believe speaks to our version of an ideal world. Instead of make believe being about fairy tales, it’s simply about equality. The song talks about wanting to live in a world where everyone is equal in all measures.


V1- Circumstances keep you living in a fantasy
Evil creatures try to bait you with their candy
Always trying to keep you trapped

From early on life’s a tale made for everyone
What you desire is created to keep you numb
Always crawling through broken glass

CH- Sleep through the night
Don’t wanna forget the fight
And try too break free
Cuz I can’t take it

Live out my life
In a place where we have rights
And I wanna be
In a world of make believe

V2- Flip the switch and all your dreams shatter on the ground
No point in fighting when you’re travelling against the crowd
Faceless monsters capture everything

Poison apples kill the child that’s left inside
Politicians use the law as a place to hide
Above the clouds can’t do anything

CH2-Sleep through the night
Don’t wanna wake up alright
How hard could it be to try and fake it
Live out my life in a place I feel alive
Oh could it be a word of make believe
