I used to think that I could be an astronaut
"If I just give it all I got, I can do anything I want"
But I'm older now and so I recognize the lie
It doesn't matter how hard I try,
You know I'll never reach the stars

My hopes, my best laid plans, and all my dreams, you see
Were too big for my ability, you know I tried with all my might
To spread my wings, making this earth a memory
To make everyone remember me
As I'm flying out of sight

Don't tell me it's okay, when it's not
Don't tell me I can buy what can't be bought
Some people have a little, some people have a lot
You never get anymore than you already...

I used to give everything I had and more
I can't remember what I did it for,
Cause everybody lets me slide
Isn't great every time we celebrate the mediocrity
And learn lessons in hypocrisy
So everybody makes the grade

I took my time to find that I could coast along
And everybody still sings my song
Still you play it like you care
Every time you lie you know you take a little bit of my liberty
Back again in mental slavery
When you worship what is fair

Don't tell me it's okay, when it's not
Don't tell me I can buy what can't be bought
Some people have a little, some people have a lot
You never get anymore than you already...

Don't tell me it's okay, when it's not
Don't tell me I can buy what can't be bought
Some people have a little, some people have a lot
You never get anymore, you never get anymore
You never get anymore than you already got
