Didn't You Know

by

Shannon Billings

Didnít you know
that none of this is real
Didnít you know
that none of us can feel
Didnít you know
we will never succeed
Didnít you know
itís a hunger we canít feed
Didnít you know
we donít deserve a thing
Didnít you know
we deserved what we got
Didnít you know...
you shouldíve known

Couldnít you see
Itís all just make-believe
Couldnít you hear
The truth in the fear

No you couldnít see
And you didnít know
The truth from make-believe
You didnít hear
You couldnít find
The truth in the fear
Or the scream in her mind
You shouldíve known
...why didnít you know
