Ahh ah ah...

Well, it's a jumbo sized monster, and...
It's eating me up
Leaving me breathless and confused, wonderin'
When's it ever gonna stop?

It gave me money and I tried to escape, but
Every penny was boomerang shaped
Got me signed and sealed
Now I'm, hot on the heels of another crooked deal...

And I've got,
Friends in high places, I never see their faces
They push me around and treat me like a baby
I don't want their popcorn, I don't want their pity
I don't want to live in Scapegoat City

Well it can wrap up a zero in, satin and steel
And you can never tell the difference between
What is and isn't real

It can destroy in a day, what took a lifetime to build
For every dream that's born, their's a million gettin' killed
But I'm learning, to love it
I know it's illegal, but everyjbody does it...

I've got, friends in high places, I never see their faces
They push me around and treat me like a baby
I don't want their popcorn, I don't want their pity
I don't want to live in Scapegoat City

I've got to close my eyes or I'll see what I'm doin'
Can't afford to read between the lines
There's a million lonely lives on the road to ruin
And the word that they're spreadin' is mine time is on my side

All the plastic people say, "yeah"
When they really mean "no"
B-b-beggin' me to stay, when
They really mean "go"

You better believe that money makes a man
But money's not the only thing that changes hands
They've got me stripped, revealed
Now I'm, sweet on the heels of some major dollar bills

And I've got, friends in high places, I never see their faces
They push me around and treat me like a baby
I don't want their popcorn, I don't want their pity
I don't want to live in Scapegoat City

I've got, friends in high places, I never see their faces
They push me around, "treat me like a baby"
I don't want their popcorn, I don't want their pity
I don't want to live in Scapegoat City

Don't want to live
I-I-I-I don't want to live
In Scapegoat City

Don't want to live
I-I-I-I don't want to live
In Scapegoat City

I've got, friends in high places, I never see their faces
They, push me around and treat me like a baby
I don't want their popcorn, I...
