here we go again
running our mouths
run until the words run out

we’re tired of coming in second
we try but we don’t learn the lesson

fall again
how many times will we let “our friend”
kick us down
steal the crown
well, who anointed you?

holy son to rule this kingdom of shit 
holy son you rule us all
I never wanted to be like you
but to get ahead I better wear your skin
I’ll try it on

go ahead
tell it to the wall
we never had a chance at all
fighting it 
seems quite useless
when everyone’s trying to mind my business

I don’t care where you’re from
I just want to see what you’re made of
suck it up and spit it in my face
mind your position and join the race

holy son, I’ll be waiting in the back for my number to be called

all these words they don’t mean shit 
when all you do is yell at bricks
all these words they don’t mean shit
when all we do is yell at bricks
blah blah blah blah blah blah
I don’t care
I’ll see you there
