Are You Satisfied?
Marina & the Diamonds Lyrics


I was pulling out my hair
The day I got the deal, chemically calm
Was I meant to feel happy
That my life was just about to change?

One life pretending to be
The cat who got the cream
Oh, everybody said, "Marina is a dreamer"
People like to tell you
What you're gonna be is not my problem if you don't see what I see
And I do not give a damn if you don't believe
My problem is my problem that I never am happy
It's my problem, it's my problem on how fast I will succeed

Are you satisfied with an average life?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?

High achiever, don't you see?
Baby, nothing comes for free
They say I'm a control freak
Driven by a greed to succeed
Nobody can stop me

'Cause it's my problem if I wanna pack up and run away
It's my business if I feel the need to smoke and drink and sway
It's my problem, it's my problem if I feel the need to hide
And it's my problem if I have no friends and feel I want to die

Are you satisfied with an average life?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?
Are you satisfied with an easy ride?
Once you cross the line will you be satisfied?

Sad inside, in this life
Unsatisfied, praying
Sad inside, in this life
Unsatisfied, waiting

Are you satisfied with an average life?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?
Are you satisfied with an easy ride?
Once you cross the line will you be satisfied?

Black, white (Are you satisfied, are you satisfied?)
Black, white (Are you satisfied, are you satisfied?)
Black, white (Are you satisfied, are you satisfied?)
Black, white (Are you satisfied, are you satisfied?)

Verse 1]
I was pulling out my hair
The day I cut the deal
Chemically calm
Was I meant to feel happy
That my life was just about to change?

One life pretending to be
The cat who got the cream
Oh, everybody said
"Marina is a dreamer"
People like to tell you

[Pre-Chorus]
What you're gonna be
It's not my problem if you don't see what I see
And I do not give a damn if you don't believe
My problem is my problem that I never am happy
It's my problem, it's my problem on how fast I will succeed

[Chorus 1]
Are you satisfied with an average life?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?

[Verse 2]
High achiever, don't you see?
Baby, nothing comes for free
They say I'm a control freak
Driven by a greed to succeed
Nobody can stop me

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause it's my problem if I wanna pack up and run away
It's my business if I feel the need to smoke and drink and sway
It's my problem, it's my problem if I feel the need to hide
And it's my problem if I have no friends and feel I want to die

[Chorus 2]
Are you satisfied with an average life?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?
Are you satisfied with an easy ride?
Once you cross the line will you be satisfied?

[Bridge]
Sad inside, in this life
Unsatisfied, praying
Sad inside, in this life
Unsatisfied, waiting

[Chorus 2]
Are you satisfied with an average life?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?
Are you satisfied with an easy ride?
Once you cross the line will you be satisfied?

[Outro]

Black, white
(Are you satisfied, are you satisfied?)
Black, white
(Are you satisfied, are you satisfied?)

I was pulling out my hair
The day I cut the deal
Chemically calm
Was I meant to feel happy?
But my life was just about to change...
One life pretending to be
The CAT who got the cream
Oh, everybody said
“Marina is a dreamer!”
People like to tell you what you're gonna be,
It's not my problem if you don't see what I see!
And I do not give a damn if you don't believe!
My problem is my problem,
That I never am happy.
It's my problem, it's my problem
That I never will succeed.
Are you satisfied
with an average life?
Do I need to lie
to make my way in life?
High achiever don't you see?
Baby, nothing comes for free!
They say I am a CONTROL FREAK,
Driven a greed to succeed!
Nobody can stop me!
'Cause it's my problem
If I want to pack up and run away.
It's my business if I feel the need to
Smoke and drink and swear.
It's my problem, it's my problem
If I feel the need to hide.
And it's my problem if I have no friends
And feel I want to die...
Are you satisfied
with an average life?
Do I need to lie
to make my way in life?
Are you satisfied
with an average life?
Do I need to lie
to make my way in life?
Are you satisfied
with an easy ride?
Once you cross the line
Will you be satisfied?
Sad inside, in this life, unsatisfied, praying...
Sad inside, in this life, unsatisfied, waiting...
Are you satisfied
with an average life?
Do I need to fly
to make my way in life?
Are you satisfied
with an easy ride?
Once you cross the line
Will you be satisfied?
Are you satisfied?
Are you satisfied?
Are you satisfied?
Are you satisfied?
Are you satisfied?
Are you satisfied?
Are you satisfied?
Are you satisfied?

It's interesting how a lot of people say they relate to this song, but really, it's that one line: "I have no friends and feel I want to die". I feel like people relate to mainly that line, and the idea that they are alone in this world. Isn't that ironic? So many people relate to that. So we aren't alone. I personally relate to this song in a different way. "Are you satisfied with an average life?". HECK NO. I want to do incredible things with that life, thank you very much. It's also weird how I see it as a song about ambition and others depression or isolation.

Unheeded Phrophetess

I think that just says a lot about you

pious potatoe

i honestly feel this song is just really relatable the one thing i can truly realate to is "its my problem if i feel the need to hide" because i usualy stay away from people but my mom says i should stop and do mere stuff but what is there to do when you got no friend you can actually vent to my mother says that im fine but mentaly im not i have so many struggles she dosent seem to see, oh sorry for ranting.

IMAO is a song about the 3 things

Alex Wheeler

ok I see it as about ambition too you're not alone

I relate with every single thing here. I used to have a toxic positivity, closing myself to everyone and having high achievements I wanted to do. I went completely out of my confort zone, I was an incredibly shy person talking to everyone. Forcing myself to do stuff because "that's what a perfect person would do" hurt me so much. I had friends, but I told myself to take my happiness in my own hands and my own hands only, brainwashing me to think that caring about people was toxic and unstable. My only source of happiness was improving myself and not depending on anything, the most toxic stoicism ever. I now live a good life, it got way better and even though I don't depend on anything I enjoy everything and I know that sometimes you don't have to take everything by myself, even more strongly considering the trauma I went through before having that toxic mindset. Thank you for reading, have a wonderful day.
