Lyrics

Simple men need simple themes
Simple lives, simple dreams
Get a job, take a pretty wife
Pave your way to a better life
One, one plus two, two plus three, three plus four
Must be more

Grand illusion, time is slipping away
Blind delusion, the earth is spinning round and round

Seeds of doubt start creeping in
Open doors start closing
Look around, the kids have grown
Father, husband, carpenter but what lurks within?
One, one plus two, two plus three, three plus four
Must be more

Grand illusion, time is slipping away
Blind delusion, the earth is spinning round and round

Make a will, plan your death
A stack of unpaid bills steals your last breath
The wind it blows, the sun it shines
Birds are singing out beyond the power lines

Grand illusion, time is slipping away
Blind delusion, the earth is spinning round and round
