It seemed so easy in daydreams past the playground and schoolyard rules
When nothing's yours, it's simple to plan your escape from all of those fools
And suddenly you get your way and you're kicking yourself ‘cause you couldn't figure out how to stay
If wishes were money I'd still lose more than I keep
And that might just be me
But consequence would be interest and it would be steep
And nothing is free
It's a small cost to dream but there's no refund for nightmares it would seem
Careful what you've bought
And don't you look to no warranties
You own what you have wrought
Ain't no money back guarantee
Well I guess life ain't fair (No it ain’t fair)
But I know life don't care
And there's no one to blame (No one to blame)
From on high to the lowly
For if you're loved or you're lonely (Lonely)
It's the one and only game
Careful what you've bought
And don't you look to no warranties
You own what you have wrought
Your money back guarantee or reprieves
So please, I'm down on my knees
Believe me
Don't you try to deny (Don’t deny)
Any lie you might buy is deceiving
Ain't no leaving for free

So you've got all your ducks in a row (Ducks in a row)
Have you figured out what you owe (What you owe)
Until you settle your bill, it won't let you go
Careful what you've bought
And don't you look to no warranties
You own what you have wrought
Ain't no money back, money back guarantee
