Convulsing envy
What a showcase of pain
Find yourself a lover
To help you take the strain
Is it really gonna help you?

(Guitar builds into instrumental chorus)

You'll die a hero
If you make an advance
Make yourself a poet
So you can take the chance
Is it really gonna help you?

CHORUS
Can't you see that you're never gonna make it? (x a few)

FIRST VERSE REPEATED
