  • we've got stars directing our fate
    and we're praying its not too late
    millennium

    some say that we are players
    some say that we are pawns
    but we've been making money since the day that we were born
    then slow down before we fall down

    we've got stars directing our fate
    and we're praying its not too late
    cause we know we're falling from grace
    millennium

    live for liposuction
    and detox for your rent
    overdose at Christmas
    and give it up for lent
    my friends are all so cynical
    refuse to keep the faith
    we all enjoy the madness cause we know we're gonna to fade away

    we've got stars directing our fate
    and we're praying it's not too late
    cause we know we're falling from grace
    millennium

    come and have a go if you think you are hard enough [Repeat: x2]

    millennium [Repeat: x2]

    we've got stars directing our fate
    and we're praying it's not too late
    cause we know we're falling from grace
    millennium

    and when we come we always come to late
    i often think that we were born to hate
    get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes (X2)

    we've got stars directing our fate
    (millennium)and we're praying its not too late
    (millennium) cause we know we're falling from grace
