The bling:

And you may find yourself in a beautiful house
With a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well
How did I get here?*

You got here by doing all the right things, my friend. You understood the important things in life early. Made your choices with your head, not your heart. Understood that to get ahead means climbing over others. This was your destiny, to push on, never looking back, never caring who was left in your wake. You took the red pill all the way to the bank, baby. And this, this twisted tower of glass and steel is your destiny. So what it doesn’t actually exist? This is the fully fuelled expression of your desires. “You say it. You think it. You can have it.”** You are the Santa Claus of your own subconscious.

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself, “My God! What have I done?”*


The hidden extras: Five patios, three levels, all the views, all the best things the best people deserve. Come on baby, let’s do the twist.***
