He worked in a center making wrong kids right watched a lot of good kids die So he spoke to the man in black, and said what's all this suffering about Are we just peddling a lie The priest he told him you have to suffer to survive It's over here but it gets better when they die Well I just can't decide if that's the truth or a beautiful lie If it's a lie it's a beautiful lie Oh it's a beautiful lie He left for fairer weather, and a fairer pay grade The corporate fantasy Found a lot of rich men there with their hearts in poverty 60 hours for a golden salary Got drunk at a work event, talking to a so called friend Is this what they call living the dream That friend he told him you have to suffer for this dream Working hard to get what you see on the tv screen Well I just can't decide if that's a dream or a torturous scheme If it's a dream it's a hell of a dream Oh what a hell of a dream So he turned to god in vain, Asked What can I find true Am I pissing in the wind But the only words he heard back they were fine but not divine An echo from inside You've been talking to that mirror in your mind Like we all have done for all of man kept time If you still can't decide between the truth and a beautiful lie I guess the truth is a beautiful lie Oh it's a beautiful lie I don't believe we have to suffer to survive Or chase a dream we hate to live till the day we die I can well decide if that's the truth or a beautiful lie It's a lie, it's a beautiful lie Oh, it's a beautiful lie
