You work a good nine to five and let it control you
Hungry for the piece of pie you think someone owes you
You don't try to survive past what you think you know
You stay afloat never swim, let the waves take your soul

Everybody wants something
(But they don't earn it)
But you're not gonna get from me
(From me, yeah)

Gotta go for what you know
(What you know)
What you get ain't all what you see
(Oh yeah)

Relationships are up to you to manifest destiny
You fuss and fight all the time, seems like you can't agree
No compromise, everyone thinks they're so damn wise
But I know one thing's for certain

What you do brings everything
While what you say don't mean a damn thing
What you say don't mean a damn thing, oh, oh

Everybody wants something
But you're not gonna get from me
(Don't look at me)

Gotta go for what you know
(Go for your)
What you get ain't all what you see
(It ain't what you see)

Everybody wants something
(Everybody wants something)
But you're not gonna get from me
(Oh, yeah yeah)

Gotta go for what you know
(Go for what you know)
What you get ain't all what you see
(Oh, oh, oh yeah)

Everybody wants something
(They don't earn it)
But you're not gonna get from me
(Don't look at me)

Gotta go for what you know
(Go for your)
What you get ain't all what you see
(It ain't what you see)

Everybody wants something
But you're not gonna get from me
(Oh, oh, oh yeah)

Gotta go for what you know
(Oh, yeah, yeah)
What you get ain't all what you see
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Everybody wants something
But you're not gonna get from me

Gotta go for what you know
What you get ain't all what you see

Everybody wants something
But you're not gonna get from me

Gotta go for what you know
(What you see ain't always what you get)
What you get ain't all what you see
(What you see ain't always what you get)

Everybody wants something
(What you see ain't always what you get)
But you're not gonna get from me
(What you see, you see, ain't always what you get)
