[Verse 1]
Turn off the TV, your suit and tie and hair all wrong
I had a bad dream, your face was on a dollar bill
Temperature rising, a private jet plane takes you home
All hail your new king, the crowd, they cheer, but they can't hear

[Chorus]
Lift me up over the wall
(We're living in, we're living in)
We have come too far to fall
(We're living in, we're living in)
When the sun goes down my hands come up
(We're living in, we're living in)
Lift me up over the wall
(We're living in, a fool's paradise)

[Post-Chorus]
We're living in
(We're living in, we're living in a fool's, fool's, fool's paradise)
We're living in
(We're living in, we're living in a fool's, fool's, fool's paradise)

[Verse 2]
Put on a brave face, your mouth is shut but money talks
I got a headache, the siren's getting louder now
Leave through the back door, blacked out Mercedes Benz is waiting
You won't quit talking, the crowd may cheer, but they can't hear so

[Chorus]
Lift me up over the wall
(We're living in, we're living in)
We have come too far to fall
(We're living in, we're living in)
When the sun goes down my hands come up
(We're living in, we're living in)
Lift me up over the wall
(We're living in, a fool's paradise)

[Post-Chorus]
Living in a
(We're living in, we're living in a fool's, fool's, fool's paradise)
Living in a
(We're living in, we're living in a fool's, fool's, fool's paradise)

[Bridge]
Now we see clearly (we see clearly)
Light, it surrounds me (it surrounds me)
And you keep on talking (quit talking)
The crowd, they cheer, but they can't hear

[Chorus]
Lift me up over the wall
(We're living in, we're living in)
We have come too far to fall
(We're living in, we're living in)
When the sun goes down my hands come up
(We're living in, we're living in)
Lift me up over the wall
(We're living in, a fool's paradise)

[Post-Chorus]
Living in a
(We're living in, we're living in a fool's, fool's, fool's paradise)
Living in a
(We're living in, we're living in a fool's, fool's, fool's paradise)
Living in a
(We're living in, we're living in a fool's, fool's, fool's paradise)
Living in a
(We're living in, we're living in a fool's, fool's, fool's paradise)

[Outro]
A fool's paradise
Living in a
