The world versus me

Arpan Dey 2004 (West Bengal)

I am me and they are they
The world is beautiful they say
Oh no it very well is not
It's easy for you to not see
To not see the harsh reality
To not see the hardships we face
The injustice we've to put up with
Oh, it's gonna be the world versus me.

It's time to stop cooperating
It's time to shut them out fully
It's time to go into hiding
And plan, plan and plan a revenge
Oh I am fed up with the world
With the system they've created
With pretty much everything
Oh, it's gonna be the world versus me.

Oh, the plans to take over the world
To turn them against themselves
To sit and watch them finish one another
And just relish every bit of it
All faded away into nothingness
It was all in vain pretty much
For even if I can beat them in the end
But, well, I can't beat death.
I will change the world, I said
In my heart of hearts, I knew I could
I will take down everything I hate
Or I will simply die trying
But then I said to myself slowly
Well, I had to die in the end
So why not enjoy the life instead?
No, I can't do that in this world.
So you see, I am stuck either way
And after giving the matter some thought
I decided to choose the rebellious path
And I openly declare war against the world
I will soon go into hiding
But I will emerge one day in the future
For all the innocent people who've been wronged
I am coming for you, I really am.

It will be the world versus me
And if you choose to join me in this quest
It's gonna be the world versus us
Oh, it's gonna be the world versus us.
