We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more

Shut the door
You're letting the darkness out
It's just about the time to watch you die
Close the blinds
We're hiding our skin from sun
While you become yesterday's headlines

I never said that I was sorry

We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more

It will be beautiful
When I'm cashing in the life I stole
With the perfect sound at the perfect time
All the single words I am forced to rhyme
It is safe to say to forget your name
When the song I wrote's on the stereo
I don't have to justify
Paying your dues is a waste of precious time

Why would you lead when you could follow?

We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more

More than we deserve
Realize our potential
Maximize our return
We'll conserve
A portrait of everything perfect
A name every house has heard

I'll take it all and leave you nothing

We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more
We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more
All we want is more
All we want is more
