you wanna be noticed
dolled up in your ambition
that’s your special motive
swallowed by your ambition baby
hollowed by your ambition
rotting you inside
eating you alive

once you were nice

you want lots of money
dressed up in your ambition
to be a somebody
messed up with your ambition baby
stressed out as your ambition
takes you for a ride
makes you twice your size
only in your own mind

who said adversity tests one's character?
power does…
that’s the truth

what will you do when you get all the things
that you want?

ask for more?

now you’re just a has-been
wrapped up in your ambition
slapped into the trash bin
washed up in your ambition baby
coughed up by your ambition
so how’d you like the ride?
cut you down to size

it fucked up your life
