Lyrics

Well, you're very good
At what should never be attempted at all
But it pays the bills
Emptiness encased in politics
Then wrapped inside a clear coat
Of waste and stupidity

Is this what you want?
Is this your big plan?
It's just that it's so...

I know where you're from
And furthermore I know
Exactly where you're going
But I don't want to jinx it
Well, you're very good at what should be considered
Nothing at all
But somehow it's not

Is this what you want?
Is this your big plan?
It's just that it's so...

Be careful what you wish for
