About Reward

"Reward" is a song by English band The Teardrop Explodes. It was released as a single in early 1981 and is the band's biggest hit, peaking at No. 6 in the UK and No. 11 in Ireland. The song was not initially included in the original 1980 UK & Europe releases of their debut album Kilimanjaro, but was included in the 1980 U. S. release together with the track "Suffocate" (replacing two tracks from the UK release). "Reward" was however added to later pressings of the album from 1981.

Bless my cotton socks, I'm in the news
The king sits on his face buttons all askew
All wrapped up the same (same)
All wrapped up the same (same)
They can't have it
You can't have it
I can't have it too
Until I learn to accept my reward

Princes stand in queues they stand accused
Death in solitude like Howard Hughes
All wrapped up the same (same)
All wrapped up the same (same)
Silence has it
Arrogance has it
I can have it ooh
Until I learn to accept my reward

Suddenly it struck me very clear
Suddenly it struck me very clean
All wrapped up the same
All wrapped up the same
You can't have it
I can't have it too
Until I learn to accept my reward

Until I learn to accept my reward

Until I learn to accept my reward

Until I learn to accept my reward

Until I learn to accept my
I learn to accept my
I learn to accept my reward!
