  • Don't do love, don't do friends
    I'm only after success
    Don't need a relationship
    I'll never soften my grip

    Don't want cash, don't want car
    Want it fast, want it hard
    Don't need money, don't need fame
    I just want to make a change
    I just wanna change
    I just wanna change
    I just wanna change
    I just wanna change
    I just wanna change

    I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
    I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
    I'm now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
    Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no

    One track mind, one track heart
    If I fail, I'll fall apart
    Maybe it is all a test
    'Cause I feel like I'm the worst
    So I always act like I'm the best

    If you are not very careful
    Your possessions will possess you
    TV taught me how to feel
    Now real life has no appeal
    It has no appeal
    It has no appeal
    It has no appeal
    It has no appeal
    It has no appeal

    I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
    I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
    I'm now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
    Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no

    I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
    I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
    I'm now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
    Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no

    I'm gonna live, I'm gonna fly
    I'm gonna fail, I'm gonna die
    I'm gonna live, I'm gonna fly
    I'm gonna fail, gonna die, die, die, die

    I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
    I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
    I'm now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
    Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no

    I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
    I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
    I'm now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
    Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no
