These romantic declarations about love
and destiny, you know I'm old enough to
know they are just - well, words. And
that's the trouble with the world — words.
Words are more powerful than we know.
Some people talk to their indoor plants even...
But I'm no longer going to take your words
for things. You don't know everything,
even though you always talk as though you do.
Really, if you are going to twist my words.

I live off you
And you live off me
And the whole world
Lives off everybody
See we gotta be exploited
By somebody, by somebody, by somebody
<I live off you>
