It Was Never Enough

 Raised in the Hamptons
Views from a balloon
Weather never happened
Golden calf, silver spoon
 
You had all you wanted
Yeah, all the best stuff
Your academic career, well-vaunted
But it was never enough
No, it was never enough
 
Loft in Tribecca
Your Upper-East Side retreat
Wall Street annual trifecta
Snatchin’ victory from the jaws of defeat
 
You had all you wanted
Yeah, all the best stuff
Your riches, well-vaunted
But it was never enough
No, it was never enough
 
The tide has now turned
That was so yesterday
Lives disrupted and churned
No voice, no say
 
You had all you wanted
Yeah, all the best stuff
Euro glitz jaunted
But it was never enough
No, it was never enough
 
Now the mob’s turnin’ ugly
Ignoring your Fox
You’re not sleeping so snugly
Ship nearing the rocks
 
You had all you wanted
Yeah, all the best stuff
Now hollow and haunted
‘Cause it was never enough
No, it was never enough
 
To everything
Turn, turn, turn 1
99% now sing
Watching you learn
 
You had all you wanted
Yeah, all the best stuff
Now openly taunted
‘Cause it was never enough
No, it was never enough
