I wanted the world to make sense
So we'd all be happy instead of tense
So I made some lies so they'd fit real nice
And I made this sad world paradise

Nice, very nice
Such different people in the same device

Lion hunter in the jungle dark
And a sleeping drunkard up in Central Park
Chinese dentist and a British Queen
All fit together in the same machine

Nice, very nice
Such different people in the same device

Bird gonna fly, man got to sit
Tiger go to sleep, that's it
Man go tell himself, man go tell himself
Man go tell himself that he understands

I wanted the world to make sense
So we'd all be happy instead of tense
So I made some lies so they'd fit real nice
And I made this sad world paradise

Nice, very nice
Such different people in the same device

Nice, very nice
Such different people in the same device
