Track Name: We'll Be Kings
well first we build the lie and then we build the show
and if we testify
they'll come from high and low
OHH
then we rake rake rake, rake in the money
we take take take take in the money
then we rake rake rake, rake in the money
we'll build a religion
build a religion
sayin hold your hands up high
and wave them to and fro
and don't forget your tithe
heaven's not free you know
OHH
then we rake rake rake, rake in the money
we take take take take in the money
then we rake rake rake, rake in the money
we'll build a religion
build a religion

well find a savior
who's already dead
manipulate the words that he said
we'll be the guardians of morality
we'll trick them and take all their things
and become kings

whoaah
the weak are first to go
Track Name: Furious Again
there's somethin churning like an ocean
watching, waiting for you to let it out
so give him a reason, that's what you do
you push until you shatter the pieces that he tried to glue
tear him down because you have something to prove

don't apologize, you fake it
this is good advice so take it
I heard you had a gun
go on and use it

yeah, im so glad I'll never be like you
yeah, im so glad I'll never feel like you

he stares with some blank emotion
dead eyes, dark mind wandring
driven by some blind devotion
to show the world his lows
the weakness in his defense
has been replaced with steel revenge
the straw broke the camels back
and now hes gotta go

don't apologize, you fake it
this is good advice so take it
I heard you had a gun
go on and use it

yeah, im so glad I'll never be like you
yeah, im so glad I'll never feel like you

you got me furious
Track Name: I Don't Know
if we crashed in the sea
would you unbuckle me?
or just crawl out the window?
if i fell through the floor
would you look forever more
or just make me you're van gogh?

I don't know

if we met in the street
would you have said hi to me
if i never said hello
if i needed to leave
would you run away with me
or just find you a new joe?

I don't know
I don't know you at all.

if i had a disease
would you stand my be
or call the crows?

I don't know
Track Name: The One Who Laughs Last
there's a war inside of me
burning red and honestly
any idiot could see
that I killed all the hope that I had

there's a war inside of me
and you watch it silently
and I wave it constantly
like a flag like a flag like a flag

this knife thats in my back
keeps twisting
anxiety attacks

this is a battleground
im caught in the crossfire
my words are weaponry
and I'm waiting patiently
you win the battle now
but I will return the fire
cause I'd crawl on broken glass
to be the one who laughs last

you're advancing mercilessly
unprovoked and needlessly
and i'll march you into the sea
just to watch you drown in the end

I am used to these black eyes,
to be bruised, antagonized
but it overwhelms my mind
to believe that I called you a friend

down the trenches i will go
fight the armies on my own
I alone
Track Name: Seven Year Itch
where are you now, ohh how quickly you rebound
just answer me now and ill stop calling
cause every night i die knowing he's right by your side
yeah he stole my life and now I'm falling
you never said a damn thing
you never shot a warning across the bow
no you just chose to let me run the ship aground

caught by surprise
I was dancing with the devil
devil in disguise
cover my eyes
and hide the world with your deception
smoke, mirrors and lies
caught me by surprise

so your friends told you to move on, the past is through
but their all spies, cause your friends are all his friends too
this nightmare never ceases and I'm left with the pieces of
a seven year itch scratched and left behind you

you're so cold
Track Name: Charlie
I know a little man with a little sin
he pays fat stacks for a little skin

he gets his money for nothin,
more than he needs
but he don't get chicks for free, no
no, not like me

charlie wants to watch
i think you gonna let him too
he thinks you're a fox
he says he's gonna cum for you
OHH
charlie wants to watch
i think you wanna let him too
he thinks you're a fox
you say you wont, you say you don't but I think you do

what do you care, no one will know
get a little cash for a little show

sayin' isn't it fun to be jane doe
when its all easy cum, its all easy go, whoa
it's not that easy

i think its going to your head
