Well I tried to paint my mind
But now I'm stuck here in the middle
Got this scalpel in my hand
I'm operating on this riddle
Got my tongue all tied in knots
On my forehead placed a label
Took all my inspiration
Carved your name into the table

Don't talk about me,
Let's talk about you,
I know your type
I know exactly what you wanna do
And if the money's right
You think I'll just agree
So sad to see you torn apart
By all your selfish greed

Sell yourself
Don't be a fool
Sell yoursel
Sell yourself Don't be a fool
Sell yourself, Sell yourself

All my memories shoplifted, Cut and snipped to little peices
Choking on your cancer, waiting on to new releases
No more need to operate
You already fooled the masses
Nothing left to give you
You alread fooled the masses

Don't talk about me,
Let's talk about you,
I know your type
I know exactly what you wanna do
And if the money's right
You think I'll just agree
So sad to see you torn apart by all your selfish greed

Sell yourself
Don't be a fool
Sell yourself
Sell yourself
Don't be a fool
Sell yourself
Sell yourself

Sell yourself
Sell yourself
Sell yourself

Sell yourself
Don't be a fool
Sell yourself
Sell yourself
Don't be a fool
Sell yourself

Sell yourself
