If I give up the seat I've been saving
Am I being a good boy
Mother please if your pleased say I am
I perform an unfortunate take

This feeling inside me could never deny me
And this pleasure I get
Is to lose
When I'm drinking my Bonaparte Shandy
Will I glance at my screen and see real human beings starve to death

Nothing gained, nothing still-born or lost,
Nothing older than time, nothing sweeter than wine
Nothing I couldn't say
Nothing rhymed
This feeling inside me could never deny me
And this pleasure I get
Is to lose
Nothing good, nothing bad, nothing ventured
Nothing further than proof nothing wilder than youth
Nothing physically, recklessly, hopelessly blind
Nothing why 'cause today
