Well I’ve a … a little cradle of appetites, a righteous punisher in my mind.
I’ve a … an ego worthy of any old time. I’ve been a victim, I can be
I made myself, don’t change a thing because I think I’m winning

Give me the job, give me the knife. I’ll cut the mustard, give me the
I’m born and raised to play this game. I’ll sell you things you haven’t even
yet made
I made myself, I even sold my mom, but bought her back much cheaper

Heaven’s for losers baby, that’s how lucky I am.
They give you things, things, things, things
that break your spirit… and then they break your heart,
They break you!

Somebody told me that true happiness, cannot be found in a Mercedes
Somebody told me that love should be free, but they can’t get the ones I

The more I’ve got, the less it seems. Got everyone around me to call me

It ain’t enough, I need you too. Don’t just do what I say, believe what you
I made myself, don’t change a thing.

The more I got, the less it seems. Don’t it break your heart?
