about

This song came about after reading how Steve Jobs managed to lure John Sculley away from Pepsi to work for Apple. Apparently Jobs sealed the deal with the line "Do you want to sell sugared water for the rest of your life? Or do you want to come with me and change the world?"

lyrics

I’m sorry, for all those little things I said
I pushed you so hard, too hard
I watched you from in my head
I want you to know that without you it won’t be said
You can’t spend it all from the graveyard floor when you’re dead
Do you wanna sell sugar water?
Or do you wanna change the world?
I missed you, and all those little things I did
I pushed you so hard, too hard
I watched you from in my head
As my your loyalty strayed my integrity stayed and I wept
And it’s insanely great how it’s you I replaced my friend
Do you wanna sell sugar water?
Or do you wanna change the world?
