Enough is not enough, it's not enough . . .
It's not enough

I've been filled with culture, I've been filled with lies
And compliments from people I despise
Shake my hand and sing along
Always getting one line wrong

It's not enough

So - when I think I know my way around
I'm gonna take a bus to the other side of town
I'm gonna stay out all night long
Gonna sing some strange new song
Lose myself and hope I don't get found
Don't ask me how

Can't you understand . . .
Enough is not enough, it's not enough . . .
It's not enough
