i wanted out, so i escaped
you cannot build
until you learn to break
when time will tell
what will it say
i am not money
or maybe, wait

you were the first
like the one before you
you got it worse
well, i don't got it, it due
you lost the thirst
and drank, but i grew
i break the curse
you say, but i do

i want the pills
and the bottle and the excess
i want the bill
and the model that collects it
i want the thrill
and the throttle and the lexus
i want it all
pay none of the taxes

all of the greats are bested one day
they sigh, auf wiedersehen
sometimes i feel i'm better off
doin’ the same
until the day we pull back that veil
at least pull back on the reins
i've seen the film
and i fall asleep at the end
the end

we will not bend
we will not sway
until you say,
i'm at your mercy
