My TV tries to talk to me
My music tells me I must see
Papers cost more than money
My view distorted with a fee

My friends all sell me what they hate
My life is judged with daily rate
I still believe I follow fate
I’d leave right now but it is far too late

Exchange me
Arrange me
Just show me what it costs

I’m breathing at expense of mind
I grieve as payment for being blind
I spend myself to show I’m kind
My heart I see is lost inside

My boredom takes up all my time
My fear makes things appear fine
I watch and dance and sing and whine
My drugs will show me how to rhyme

Thrill me
Kill me
Just show me what it costs
