Steriogram – Built On Lies (Gangster) lyrics

Oh tough guy- living your rhymes or is it just in your mind?
My mistake, were you actually just living a lie?
Nevertheless, so continuous.
I know your playing the part but its so ridiculous
Now I know its just that you want to feel high,
And don't get me wrong cause I think its alright.
One thing discovered, one thing I have found
Is that everybody wants to be a gangster
When they turn off the light
A vision of a million dollar banner "wanted dead or alive"
In the dead of the night
I never thought I'd ever see a
World war made up
Whole thing built on lies
Oh you don't walk you dance,
I love the way you glance at everybody to intimidate them with your staunch stance.
Well at first he's got the thrill, the machines all set to kill
And he hopes you'll come around but I guess I never will
Everybody wants to have their minute while its hot
But I don't like killing just so we can dig their land up
I don't really get it and I guess I never will.
