YOU WERE NOT THE END
Look at you now all successful
The money bought friends and status symbols
Maybe not so influential
Could it be inconsequential?

I've been to the moon and back since then
Made some really important friends
You were not the end

Self-promoted to headmistress
Lady Muck in an uptown district
Acting like you are landed gentry
Here's a sign, see it says 'no entry'

I've been to the brink and back since then
Watched these broken pieces mend
You were not the end

Look at you now, all successful
That could change if you're not too careful
Built a house of cards on sand dunes
Sing it down if you can't change your tune

You've been to the edge but not returned
Standing on a bridge that we once burned
You were not the end

Tried to make a big impression
Save your face for the next recession
Honesty is overrated
In a mind so complicated

I've been to the moon and back since then
Made some really important friends
You were not the end
