You work a good nine to five
And let it control you
Hungry for the piece of the pie you think someone owes you
But you don't try to survive past what you think you know
You say afloat never swim, let the waves take your soul.
Everybody wants something
(but they don't earn it)
But you're not gonna get from me
Gotta go for what you know (what you know)
What you get ain't all what you see.
Relationships are up to you to manifest destiny
You fuss and fight all the time, seems like you can't agree
No compromise, everyone thinks they're so damn wise
But I know one thing's for certain
What you do brings everything, while what you say don't mean a damn thing
What you say don't mean a damn thing, oh, oh.
(2x) what you see ain't always what you get
What you see ain't always what you get
What you see ain't always what you get.
