I'll be the king of the wasteland If I keep fighting the war I'll be the king of the wasteland Yea if I can just keep on fighting Keep on fighting Keep on fighting... I'll be the lord of the nothing When nothing's left to be gained I'll be the lord of the nothing If I can just be the last man standing Last man standing Last man standing... What good is the money Without a world to spend it in I'll be a god in the rubble When rubble's all that remains I'll be a god in the rubble I'll speak the last words to ghosts and angels Ghosts and angels Ghosts and angels... What good is the money Without a world to spend it in I'll be the king of the dust I'll be the king of the dust I'll be the king of the dust I'll be the king of the dust I'll be the king of the dust I'll be the king of the dust I'll be the king of the dust We're on fire! We're on fire! We're on fire! We're on fire! What good is the money Without a world to spend it in What good is the money Without a world to spend it in What good is the money Without a world to spend it in

Self abuse feels so enlightening Divine release from up above The void enjoys its weekend custody And does its best to buy your love With a sideways glance and a pat on the ass And a little hit of dopamine I just want to feel Something other than my life Being crushed inside the vice The world's engulfed in flames So we're dancing on our graves To try and pass the time It's okay to cry When smoke gets in your eyes Bored reading our own obituaries The bottle holds the genie well His anesthesia's what the people need To keep on working in this hell If you work hard enough you'll get employee of the month And win a gift card to Applebees I just want to feel Something other than my life Being crushed inside the vice The world's engulfed in flames So we're dancing on our graves To try and pass the time It's okay to cry When smoke gets in your eyes I hate this place Nothing works here I've been here 35 years The medications don't work I hate this place Nothing works here I've been here 35 years The medications don't work I hate this place Nothing works here I've been here 35 years The medications don't work I just want to feel Something other than my life Being crushed inside the vice The world's engulfed in flames So we're dancing on our graves To try and pass the time It's okay to cry When smoke gets in your eyes

I tried to trade the war for a boat and a beer This plastic grave for a hand written note from a past life They tell us we're being naive That nobody cares if we bleed Despite their advice we believe That its still a beautiful world We listen close to spirits that pace in the hallway In strange refrains they promise to stay with is always They tell us we're being naive That nobody cares what we need Don't listen to them just believe That its still a beautiful world

I want you to know The weight of the world The pain that you've caused The fear of the fall You know what you've done You know what you've done I want you to lose Something you love The call of the void The taste of your blood You'll figure it out You'll figure it out I hope you spend the rest of your life Checking over your shoulder For the sword of Damocles to drop I want you to see The fruit of your toil Slip from your grasp Turn into ash You know that you're damned You know that you're damned

You always carried a big stick You never learned to speak softly You always carried a big stick You never learned to speak softly And look how far you've come Look how far you've come You're never too scared to taste blood When fear is all you're afraid of You're never too scared to taste blood When fear is all you're afraid of And look how far you've come Look how far you've come And look how far you've come Look how far you've come I used to think if I always If I always did what was right I'd be alright I used to think if I always If I always did what was right I'd be alright I used to think if I always If I always did what was right I'd be alright I used to think if I always If I always did what was right I'd be alright

I'm unmoved by evidence Unswayed by truth or right These are just distractions from my task Like the myth of Sisyphus I rise from bed each day For another dollar to be made I know all I'm worth Is what the market bears If I don't rock the boat I'll get what's fair This is all there is All I've ever known I don't think on politics They don't affect my life They're just games that wealthy people play I don't like outsiders in My tiny little world There's too much I'm scared they'll take away I'm afraid they might Be just like me too 'Cause I know all the fucked up things I do This is all there is All I've ever known If I ever make it to the top of the mountain I'll say "Thank you for the boulder." If I ever make it to the top of the maountain I'll say "May I have another." If I ever make it to the top of the mountain I'll say "Thank you for the boulder." If I ever make it to the top of the maountain I'll say "May I have another."

You found me When I was underwater You opened up my eyes You promised That it would be so easy Then you showed me Exactly where I could sign You really stepped in it this time Don't ever let them see your true eyes You sold me A dream I wanted dearly My eyes were dollar signs You said with Only a small investment No indulgence Would need ever be declined You really stepped in it this time Don't ever let them see your true eyes When you walked me through your door Said "This could all be yours," "Don't worry anymore." But then, as my payday neared Life savings on the line You up and disappeared

You gotta break a few eggs sometimes I'll break a hundred eggs I'll break your legs It's time to change the world No one asked me to do this They wouldn't know how to ask I know what they need I'm on a mission from god I'm on a mission from god They say a hard rain's gonna fall And wash the gutter clean I'm not waiting anymore I am the rain machine If they knew what I know They'd have done it themselves years ago I am inevitable I'm on a mission from god I'm on a mission from god I'm on a mission from god I'm on a mission from god I'm on a mission from god I'm on a mission from god
