You could have been more than a name on the door
On the thirty-third floor in the air
More than a credit card
Swimming pool in the backyard

While you still have the time
You could get away and find a better life
You know the grind is so ungrateful
Racing cars, whiskey bars no one cares who you really are

You're the keeper of the cards, yes I know it gets hard
Keeping the wheels turning
And the wife she keeps the keys
She is so pleased to be a part of the arrangement

You could have been more than a name on the door
On the thirty-third floor in the air
More than a consumer lying in some room trying to die
More than a credit card, swimming pool in the backyard

You could have been more than a name on the door
You could have been more than a name on the door
You could have been more
You could have been more
You could have been more
