lyrics

Sell to me
Get into the market
Find yourself a niche
Then you can monetise it
Be commodity
Ask if I like fries with it
And when you're 40 or 50
Get off the stage and quit it

Lay a golden egg now
Write a new song every day
It's a numbers game now
Conquer, divide and

Write what you want and plan your escape

Sell to me
Love life for a living
But subconsiously
Deep down inside you're dying
'Cause you're 40 or 50
And you hate everything you've written
But you've made a living
You can't have your cake and eat it

Lay a golden egg now
Write a new song every day
It's a numbers game now
Conquer, divide and

Write what you want and plan your escape

Set it free
Write what you wanna hear
Sell your honesty
Give it a go just try it
And when you're 40 or 50
And you love everything you've written
That's a life worth living
Put it in your pipe and smoke it

Lay a golden egg now
Write a new song every day
It's a numbers game now
Conquer, divide and escape.
