This indignation:
I've never felt more entitled to spit in your face than
Now.
Even {when} I gave you more credit, you weren't ever
Worth the benefit of the doubt.
If you're not painfully dense, you're willfully blind,
And I don't know what's worse.
Have you ever looked inside or are you just too big for
That?

Read a story in the paper about how it's people like you
Who've been draining my life away.
Newsflash: on the driver side airbag the passenger will
Twice as likely be blown away.
Thought of you with your foot on the gas; you were
Drunk off your ass.
Now you've gone and crashed and burned.

You had all the fun.
You were the lucky ones.
And after all you've done you think I believe you?
"Heir to the throne," you thought that this world was
Yours to take
And now I'm dedicated to making you think twice.

Un-broke those promises
You're selling a dream that only pays out to you.
This pathological game plan: when shit hits the fan
You're on top the escape routes.
These politicians in your pocket - sold off collective

Suspension of disbelief.
Shake me down for my lunch money buddy.
It's not my fault I just couldn't compete with ya.

All tied up on the passengers side of a car you were
Driving; you were making your getaway.
When you flipped and flew over the cliff I thought,
"Who let you in the driver's seat anyway?"
If I pull myself out from this wreckage, I'll know
Right where I'm headed - I'll send you a message.

You had all the fun.
You were the lucky ones.
And after all you've done you think I believe you?
"Heir to the throne," you thought this world was yours
To take.
But now a brick through your windows is the easiest way
To say...

You had all the fun.
You were the lucky ones.
And after all you've done you think I believe you?
"Heir to the throne" you thought this world was yours
To take
But now I'm dedicated to making you think twice.

What's that you say? You're just victims of
Circumstance?
Oh haha!... guess I'll just laugh it off...
