You can pretend you’re a sailor
Just because you have a boat in the isles
You can pretend you’re a tailor
Cause you’re always dressed to the nines

Or you might think you’re a policeman
Just because you told a man how to drive

Well I hate to be breaking up your peace, man
But it looks to me like you need a life

If we pretend hard enough
We can say the worlds a beautiful place
If we pretend hard enough
We can hide its most ugly face

If we pretend hard enough
We can see what was accomplished by the human race
But it’s all about nothing
If they still can’t spare a child

You can pretend you’re a doctor
Just because you sold your herbal tea
You can pretend you’re a painter
Who will be recognized in history

You can pretend you’re a baker
Just because you baked an apple pie

Well I hate to be breaking up your peace man
But stop trying to pretend you’re civilized

What you pretend is only your imagination
Even if you need it to avoid all those frustrations
In the mean time life fulfills its cruel reality
Outside your bubble, there’s a world in deep discrepancy
