Coveted Trophy

I don’t need a wink from the weakest link
I need a certain trophy which is smaller than you think
Don’t need to validate my life with children or a wife
Or being 2011’s best comedian in Fife

All of this pales into insignificance
When you ponder the ridiculous magnificence of…

Na na na na na na na na na
Coveted trophy

When you play a role
You lose a bit of soul
You don’t need an ambition or a mission or a goal

When you know that you exist
You try to make a fist
Of living in convention when you just want to get pissed

Try and keep a hand
Don’t lose your head to head
If you have no exit strategy play dead

Being and believing
Being and deceiving
Being and redeeming
Being and appealing
