Try to convince you that you can't live without one
Hey look around man everybody's got one
So hurry up get your dollar bills together
They're going to try and get you something even better

You're not so sure but you heard it's great
You get there first so you won't be late
Everybody else will have to wait in line

I overestimated you
You knew that I probably would
We're so predictable
We've been sold a bill of goods

You want a choice want to make your own decisions
You want to make up the rules and the provisions

And everything is going to be so great
When you're the latest keeper at the gate
Everybody else will have to wait in line
