Everything won't do

lyrics

What have you got, you don’t need
What do you grab as flames surround you?
What is the first name that you call?
The wolves are at the door

I got everything – And you got everything
But we got nothing – We got nothing
I got everything but.... Everything won’t do

In the mansions on the hills
Panelled walls will confine you
Freelance friends & hired help
This world will define you

I got everything – And you got everything
But we got nothing – We got nothing
I got everything but.... Everything won’t do

Everything won’t do. Everything won’t do

Where do you run when locks are broke?
How do you cope, when all desert you?
King of nothing, queen of it all
Close your eyes and saw the fall

I got everything – And you got everything
But we got nothing – We got nothing
I got everything but.... Everything won’t do
