Why Wouldn't I Want Utopia?

You think I'm just an ignorant child,
that I don't know what the world holds,
You think I'm oblivious of the pain, of the hurt.
You only know jealousy, anger, and pain.
Why wouldn't I want Utopia?

You live in a world of taxes and busy schedules.
I know this world,
But it is not my life's focus.
I look at the good in life, at what could be.
Why wouldn't I want Utopia?

I've lived in this world of hurt, where pain rules.
I know what it's like to face this horrible truth.
I don't want to face it.
But that doesn't make me ignorant.
I know the truth.
But I couldn't face it.
Look at the world that you live in.
Why wouldn't I want Utopia?
