​How Could They?

This song is by The Code and appears on the album Alert, Aware, Involved (2002).

How could they do this, how could they say
We抳e done the wrong thing
The whole time, they told us, we would be there today
The smiles, they face us, in all the wrong ways

I offered what I could, the smiles they adored
Time broke through to the end, and stroked the loudest chord
I抳e seen things, I抳e felt things, most others cannot feel
I抳e smelled the stale smell, the taste of what抯 not real
I抳e gone through my whole life, expecting to be the best
Now I抦 living in a dream, along with all the rest
How could they?...How could they say?

How can they tell us that it抯 not real,
How can they judge the way we feel
How could they really mean that it抯 not how it seems
How could they really mean that it抯 just a dream
