In a world
In this world
Other people's problems they overwhelm my mind

I'm not their problems
But now I've...made some decisions
Take my compassion...Push it as far as it goes
I've heard all I want to, I don't want to hear any more
What are you, in love with your problems?
It's...not so cool to have so many problems to your analyst, isn't that what they're paid for
It's not a question...Of your personality or style

In this world where decisions are a way of life
They say compassion is a virtue, but I don't have the time
