What do I need So clear to see
By the flashing screens around me
Desire devour dispose repeat
When will it finally make me complete

Money sex and drugs the things I’m trained to love
My image ever changing and defined by all my stuff
When will it collapse and conform into a crutch
Oh when push comes to shove I’ll take my money sex and drugs

What do I want if i give it some thought
It might be a little more than the things I’ve bought
Sure I’ve got cash to keep my powdered face fresh
But when smoke pours from the mirror it all turns to ash

When push came to shove where were my money sex and drugs

What is success? have i made it yet?
look at me now ma is this as good as it gets
Still feels like there’s too many holes in my safety net

I’m slaving while craven to be out misbehaving
My receipts keep piling I know I will be paying
The man who decides what I need in my life
Like I don’t know what I’m saying
