lyrics

I'm stranded in the jungle,
Using a machete in my mind. x2

And all I lost was just myself,
Reaching for the highest shelf;
All I felt was wondrous pain;
Nothing ventured nothing gained.

You give me money, I give you smiles;
Something sacred and worthwhile;
I write us off so many times;
This is the best stuff from my mind

All I want was what was lost, try to
Recoup my sunken costs;
It's public now, my secret pain;
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Why can't you believe
Why can't you believe
Why can't you believe in what you see;
We're married, not buried -
That's another thing we'll do together.

I'm standing at the crossroads,
Looking at the reflection in my mind. x2

And all I got was life and joy -
Another boy, another boy,
Useless wants and needless toys;
So I'll make my little noise.

Children! Break a window, raise the roof
Don't avoid that greater truth
Live it all, be not ashamed
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

All I'm saying is I don't care -
That's why I stopped wearing underwear;
So love your loves and swallow pain,
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Why can't you believe
Why can't you believe
Why can't you believe in what you see;
We're married, not buried -
That's another thing we'll do together.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. x2
