We think that it can work but it doesn't often
I think we'll look like jerks nailing our own coffins
We think that we can talk but we miss it by a mile
We think that we can joke but no one cracks a smile

Must be out of touch
They think that there's so little
I can't believe there's so much
Of what the whole world wants

All down every street
But I can't get a square foot of shade from the heat
What the whole world wants
Just outside our door
Be we don't see a day's end without needing more

We get the most we can, I don't think we've earned it
We act just like a man, I don't think we've learned it
We do it like our job and we treat it like the law
Well it must have been your little sister I saw
Must have been your little sister I saw
Must have been your little sister I saw
Must have been your little sister I saw
Must have been your little sister I saw
Must have been your little sister all along

It's bred into the bone
And we don't need our friends
They wonder how to get started
I wonder if it ends
But it's what the whole world wants

All down every street
But I can't get a square foot of shade from the heat
What the whole world wants
Just outside our door
Be we don't see a day's end without needing more
What the whole world...
