Lyrics

This golden parade
I bought a ticket to, and so did you
But we never knew

The invitations don't say
This ball is a masquerade
Now I'm wondering who played who

You don't have to be so kind
But if you wouldn't mind

I think I want my money back
I think I want my freedom back
I think I want my money back
I want it back, just give it back

Now that I've been around
I've seen the entire show, and now I know
Why I had to go
Once I finally learned all I could live without
I walked right through that door

I guess I should have seen the signs
But if you wouldn't mind

I think I want my money back
I think I want my freedom back
I think I want my innocence back
My childhood back, just give it back

I think I want my money back
I think I want my freedom back
I think I want my money back
I want it back, just give it back

And all this time
I was promised I'd be somebody, be somebody, be somebody
You got to be somebody, be somebody
