    'Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony, this life
    Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die
    I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
    You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah
    No change, I can change, I can change, I can change

    And the corridors that go on and on and on
    Are we blind - can we see?
