About living the better life
You get so sick of yourself
And all the things that your money can buy
And yes it’s hard
So very hard to admit
Just how pointless it all is

But what a surprise you finally arrived

I still remember
The anger in your words
I think I liked you better
When you had something to prove
Still it’s hard
So very hard to admit
Just how pointless it all is

What a surprise you finally arrived
What a surprise you finally arrived
What a surprise you finally arrived

Then you go and lose the spell
And every trace of your self

If you ever change your mind
About living the better life
You get so sick of yourself
And all the things that your money can buy
And yes it’s hard
Very hard to admit
Just how pointless it all is

What a surprise you finally arrived
What a surprise you finally arrived
What a surprise you finally arrived
What a surprise you finally arrived
What a surprise you finally arrived
What a surprise you finally arrived

Then you go and lose the spell and every trace of yourself
