(verse one):
I fell off a cliff
Now I'm down in the deep
This place is a dive--
Four days I've nothing to eat
I'm a commercial and I say
Don't take a trip to the sun
A public service message says
"Work has got to be done."

CHORUS: But I'm no better than you
And you're no better than me
So we'll see it all the way through
and pretend there's no misery.

(verse two):
Don't fade away too fast
Don't get lost in the past
It's supernatural--a pool of death
Don't want to jump in--let me
Catch my breath!

CHORUS: But I'm no better than you
And you're no better than me
So we'll see it all the way through
and pretend there's no misery!

(verse three:)
I'm lost and alone
I'm losing my head
I wish I had a gun
How long must I pretend
That I'm just a fool who says,
Have some fun!
A public service message says,
"Work has got to be done!"

CHORUS: But I know better than you
And you know better than me
So we'll see it all the way through
and pretend there's no misery!

Well, I've got to pretend
There's no misery
Well, I've got to pretend
There's no misery
Pretend--!!!
I've got to, I've got to
pretend there's no misery--
Well, I've got pretend there's no misery (repeat ten times and fade)
