I thought we had a Deal

I thought we had a Deal

 

I climb into the cockpit,

flip the switch and all goes green

I rise up to the skies in a rocket-powered mule

My fortune runs on lies and the smell of engine fuel

Contraband’s the low-life’s friend

No looking back when money’s in your hand

 

BUT: halfway on the run

A spaceman finds me with his gun

He says, ‘Mate, you know how it is

It’s either you or it is me

This is not the life that I was promised it to be.’

 

So he shot me down

Down, down, down

A spaceman shot me down

Down, down, down

 

This is not the future we were promised

This is not what life was s’posed to be

We were promised hoverboards and jetpacks

Not to hustle for our paychecks

 

Another life, another time

I’m running errands for a dime

I crawl around a city where the streets are paved in gold

But underneath the pavement lie the souls that have been sold

Then, one day a suitman comes

He offers exorbitant sums

 

But as you guessed, he sold me out

Now I’m just six feet underground

He said: ‘Mate, you know how it is

It’s either you or it is me

This is not the life that I was promised it to be.’

 

So he shook me down

Down, down, down

A suitman shook me down

Down, down, down

 

This is not the future we were promised

This is not what life was s’posed to be

We were promised hoverboards and jetpacks

Not to hustle for our paychecks
