You never wanted this
So now I'm taking it from you
Back in the hands of the natives of this land
You're a fallen star
You know not what you are
We're escaping through the tunnels deep beneath you

People like you are why people like me exist
Persist to spit upon your writ
People like you are why people like me defy your lies
So here's your kiss goodbye

Don't you look at her
Don't even say a word
You had your chance and you sold it secondhand
Repressed and overdressed
Brand a scarlet letter on your chest
Here's where second best overtakes the rest

People like you are why people like me exist
Persist to spit upon your writ
People like you are why people like me defy your lies
So here's your kiss goodbye

We see, we see right through
We see, we see right through you
We see, we see right through
We see right through you

A person's not more than a thing
The day his insides cease to sting
Yeah
Get on your gloves and take the ring
Vacate your throne, unholy king of kings
Whoah yeah

People like you are why people like me exist
Persist (persist) to spit upon your writ
People like you are why people like me defy (defy) your lies (your lies)
So here's your kiss goodbye

People like you
People like you
People like you are why people defy your lies
So here's a kiss goodbye
