Lyrics

It was all fading, fading into one.
When I saw you trading bullets with Tuco on the run.
I thought to myself for once, the things we need ain't the things that we want.
The big screen nowadays just don't seem like any fun.

All we get are the cheap thrills.
We’re not paying the big bills.
We get what we need - satisfaction and greed.
There’s a cost even if the cheap thrills seem free.


It's all the same, a formula underneath everyone's name.
And yes I saw Gordon glorify greed and fame.
And in the real world, as we wait to see if Wall Street will burden the blame.
The big screen nowadays should be so ashamed.

All we get are the cheap thrills.
We’re not paying the big bills.
We get what we need - satisfaction and greed.
There’s a cost even if the cheap thrills seem free.


It was all fading, with the curtain closed it was done,
When I saw a light like Bowman saw beyond the sun.
And I thought to myself before the encore had begun,
We should strive to live beyond the screens we've built around everyone.

All we get are the cheap thrills.
We’re not paying the big bills.
We get what we need - satisfaction and greed.
There’s a cost even if the cheap thrills seem free.

It was all fading.
