House of cards:
Fame and fortune and pain the things that you've gained
Grey goose and champagne they'll take ya for everything ya got till ya
Got no more, gonna bleed you dry baby that's for sure
So hopelessly vain
All hail to the king
All in designer clothing

You can’t buy love with ya credit card
You can’t get high with the friends you lost
It comes down to the house of cards
You lose your way you lose your way
The sun goes up on the wave you ride
But it all comes down and you wonder why
It’s gone too late till ya realize
That you lose your way you lose your way
Maze, your heads in a daze, caught up in the chase
As long as it pay, they take you for everything you got till ya got no
Gonna bleed ya dry baby that's for sure
Shame, have you got no shame
Break out the shades pretend it's what you wish for

Everything ya got till ya got no more
Gonna bleed ya dry baby that's for sure
Have you got no shame
All hail to the king
All in designer clothing
