LyricsEdit

Shhh, be quiet, you might piss somebody off

Like me motherfucker you've been at it for too long

While you feed off others' insecurities

You stand in front of me and bite the hand that feeds

Self-righteousness is wearing thin (lies inside your head, your best friend)

Heart bleeds but not for fellow man (broken glass, your fake reflection)

I've had enough, it's time for something real

Don't respect the words you're speaking, gone too far, a clone

So how does it feel to know that someone's kid

In the heart of America has blood on their hands

Fighting to defend your rights, so you can maintain a lifestyle

That insults his family's existence, well, where I'm from we have a special

Salute that we aim high in the air, towards all those pointless assholes

Who spend their days pointing fingers (fuck you)

Shhh, be quiet, you might piss somebody off

Like the heartbeat of this country when antagonized too long

I'll be damned if you count me in as part of your generous hypocrisy

Collecting enemies

Tabloid gossip queen worthless man (there's no need for us to bury you)

Selfish agenda once again (right this way you've dug your own grave)

I've had enough, it's time for something real

Don't respect the words you're speaking, gone too far, a clone

All the way from the east to the west we got this high society

Locking down on their very foundation, constantly reminding us that our actions

Are the cause of all their problems, pointing their fingers in every direction

Blaming their own nation for who wins the elections

They've never contributed a fucking thing to the country they love to criticize

Excuse the obscene, ignore the untrue depictions we see, try and get through

Admitting mistakes can hurt, I'm not the last but I sure ain't the first

Shhh, be quiet, you might piss somebody off

Self-righteous is wearing thin (lies inside your head your best friend)

Heart bleeds but not for fellow men (broken glass your fake reflection)

I've had enough, it's time for something real

Don't respect the words you're speaking, gone too far, a clone
