Will you still be alone when that goal's faded? [Verse 1]
Listen
Little Jimmy was a kid with some big dreams
Staying up late at night sketching big scenes (big scenes)
Decides being artist at thirteen
But first gotta go to college cause that's what he
Expected to do when he thought he should be
Can't get to the dream without the degree
Now he's out of the school but his school ain't free
So he gets a new suit, push pause on the dream
And now he's pushing forty, corner office down the hall
Yeah he got a million dollars but lost sight of it all, damn
[Chorus]
Look at how you sold your soul for paper
Look at all the time you've gone and wasted
Look at all this gold, you think you've made it? Will you still be alone when that goal's faded? [Outro]
He'd go up in the elevator
Down, down in the elevator
He'd go up in the elevator
Down, down in the elevator
He'd go up in the elevator
Down, down in the elevator
He'd go up in the elevator
Down, down in the elevator
He'd go up in the elevator
Down, down in the elevator
He'd go up Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
[Pre-Chorus]
He'd go up in the elevator
Make the money
Down in the elevator
Chase the honeys
Up in the elevator
Make the money
Down in the elevator
Chase the honeys
[Chorus]
Look at how you sold your soul for paper
Look at all the time you've gone and wasted
Look at all this gold, you think you've made it? Will you still be alone when that goal's faded? Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh, oh-oh
[Verse 2]
Bottle, bottle, at the club last night
Got too drunk again
Saw some girls who looked just right
Woke up alone again
[Bridge]
Trying to fill this hole but it stays open
Bottomless pit but I stay hopin'
Try to buy a fix but I stay broken
Come and wake me up when I stay over
Bill, gym, life in an endless loop
Ctrl-alt-delete but he can't reboot
All this screen but he can't refuse
All this screen but he feels abused
[Pre-Chorus]
He'd go up in the elevator
Make the money
Down in the elevator
Chase the honeys
Up in the elevator
Make the money
Down in the elevator
Chase the honeys
[Chorus]
Look at how you sold your soul for paper
Look at all the time you've gone and wasted
Look at all this gold, you think you've made it?
