August Burns Red – Poor Millionaire lyrics

You stand up pridefully in front of thousands, screaming words of justice
And truth.

You wear a mask of this city's hero. You are the pretender.
You fake, you fake, but fortunate. You wear a mask of this city's hero.
You fake, you fake, but fortunate. You are the pretender.

Your weak speech lines your gums with gold teeth, yet you don't believe in
A word that you say.
You're speaking shackles to life. Self-rightheousness is your demise.

You coward. Draw a line in the sand. You bastard. Look at what you have
Become.
Your breath it reeks of perversion.
Your tongue is just like a whore, full of vulgarity, full of the disease.

Where is the life in the life you live? You are the poor millionaire.
Where is the life in the life you live? A lifeless empire, a lifeless heir.

Your crown is like a lion's mouth devouring you from the inside out.
Turn away before there's nothing left. It's life or death.

Tyrant. Ring the bells of repentance, awakening from your deathbed.
Tyrant. Ring the bells of repentance, awaken from your deathbed. Oh tyrant.
Oh tyrant.

You stand up pridefully in front of thousands, screaming words of justice
And truth.
You wear a mask of this city's hero. You are the pretender.

Coward. Coward. Where is the life in the life you live?
Where is the life in the life you live?... Life you live?

    To me this is the worlds leaders in a nutshell. Like really "your weak speech lines your gums with gold teeth, yet you don't believe in" wow how many politicians believe in what theyre saying? Not many. Its usually political nonsense and picjking sides.
    Where is the life in the life you live? You are the poor millionaire.
    Where is the life in the life you live? A lifeless empire, a lifeless heir.
    ^really I mean they might have everything now but they have no treasure stored up in heaven. I'm not making this a fight or anything, but it really is sad. And for all of those people who say "well im not a christian because theyre so hypocritical... " you shouldnt judge christ by his followers. "i like your christ, i do not like your christians. Your christians are so unlike your christ. " even ghandi knew what chist was and he wasnt even a christian! But anyways, if you don't wanna find meanings in the songs still enjoi :) abr is still amazing.
