Maybe You Will

You can think long and hard
It doesn't take imagination
It takes a lot of repetition
To get yourself a reputation

And maybe you will
Maybe you will
Maybe you will

You can take pride in efficiency
Do everything that needs doing
You can stand back, just wait and see
I hope it doesn't lead you to ruin

But maybe it will
Maybe it will
Maybe it will

Live for your job, get sick of the boss
You can stay home and do what you want
But can you live with the loss?
You can have kids, and believe in them
They have kids and the whole thing starts again
With no end

Does anyone think the world's going to care
If you think you took a wrong turn back there?
Maybe not

There's only one way out of here
Is that the only guarantee? 
Maybe

We're just here like dogs are here
But we bring the angst and we make a fuss
Animals don't mind
They just get on with their lives
They don't think twice
It's only us
It's only us

You can find yourself a god,
But the choice is overwhelming
Reach for the stars, read the cards
If you know the future, why don't you just tell me?

And maybe you will
Maybe you will
Maybe you will

Does anyone think the world's going to care
If you think you took a wrong turn back there?
Maybe not

There's only one way out of here
Is that the only guarantee?
Maybe

We're just here like dogs are here
But we bring the angst and we make a fuss
Animals don't mind
They just get on with their lives
They don't think twice
It's only us
It's only us

You can work long and hard
You're going to need a lot of patience
It takes a lot of repetition
To get yourself a reputation

And maybe you will
Maybe you will
Maybe you will
