lyrics

Well I've been so drunk on dedication
Like I believed there was any of it left
I've peeled my nails from the skin 'till they're gushing
Bent over backwards to come in last place

Where's the profit?
Where's the check?
Choke on the paper lodged in your neck
You wear the fabric of failing
You are the needle and the stitch
You weave the fabric of failing
You don't deserve this
You are the link to a dead cause
You are the charlatan
You are a burning paper trail
Dry heaving on a wasted stage

You may sing it
But it's clear that you don't really mean it
What's the pay, what's gonna be the profit?
You got something to say? Say it!
Eat your earnings, put your money where you mouth is
Rock n roll is dead, and you're the reason for it
So punk, so pathetic clinging to it
Cash out, old thieves are the new musicians

You've been subject to this new debt

I've given all I had to see you crumble into dust, there's no reality to the words that you spit from your tongue, this sound is lust. Fashion your words from the profit that eats you alive, no sincerity or respect for the message you contrive. Behead the king and taint the meat, this milk has soured. Wolf down the heart and watch the youth be devoured. Horns on the hoods of angels, horns on your halo, cruel intentions lead to bitter endings don't you know? Don't you know that money in the world won't buy you a home?
