You Want What's Owed To You



Version of the song Length Containing on which release

Album Version 4:37 Automation Baby [CD]

All the young and the pretty things
Walking around with the diamond rings
And you'd do the same every time

Loaded up with the latest names
The spoils of some ill-gotten gains
And you need that shame in your life

And you know you get nothing for free?

It's not a matter of what you say
It doesn't matter how much you pay
'Cause they won't let go
No, they won't let go of you

It doesn't matter how hard you try
It doesn't matter how much you buy
'Cause you want what's owed
'Cause you want what's owed to you

All the stars and the air-brushed teens
Sliding out of the limousines
You can see your name up in lights

Every day it's a different dream
Staring out of your magazine
You could buy that face
You'd be the perfect wife

And you know you get nothing for free?

It's not a matter of what you say
It doesn't matter how much you pay
'Cause they won't let go
No, they won't let go of you

It doesn't matter how hard you try
It doesn't matter how much you buy
'Cause you want what's owed
'Cause you want what's owed to you

Everybody wants some piece of the action
Everybody needs it, jealousy feeds it
(Jealousy feeds it, jealousy feeds it)
Living on the bread-line?
Still gonna get mine

More alone than you've ever been
Topping up on your self-esteem
You can fill that space in your soul

Take a trip with your credit card
Fill the back of your brand-new car
You can live that dream
You can fill that hole

But you know you've got nothing on me

And you know you get nothing for free?

It's not a matter of what you say
It doesn't matter how much you pay
'Cause they won't let go
No, they won't let go of you

It doesn't matter how hard you try
It doesn't matter how much you buy
'Cause you want what's owed
'Cause you want what's owed to you

Everybody wants some piece of the action
Everybody needs it, jealousy feeds it
(Jealousy feeds it, jealousy feeds it)
Living on the bread-line?
Still gonna get mine
