KINGMAKER

I’ve given up, they got nothing left to say
Prep school boys who have never had to work a day
They broke the spine, now we got nothing left to give
Long tall stories from the red top bibles today
And how they fall, fall from the grace of their class
The kingmaker’s dead everybody come on raise a glass
It’s where it’s at

You got your long tongue liars, got your so called fliers  
Trying to rub my face in the dirt
You got your so called leaders suck us in like leaches
Numb the pain so Johnny doesn’t hurt

You blur the line and now there’s no where left to run
Put you’re X on the paper let the big boys have their fun
And it don’t change, they say its better that it’s worse
Watching little red lines while the thief’s looking after the purse
And how you fall, fall so hard and so fast
The kingmaker’s dead everybody come on raise a glass
It’s where it’s at

You got your long tongue liars, got your so called fliers  
Trying to rub my face in the dirt
You got your so called leaders sucking hope like leaches
Numb the pain so Johnny doesn’t hurt
(Repeat)

Inject the lie and let the morphine do its work
Sit back, sit tight and let the liar do his soothing words
We’ve given up and how the feeling makes me glad
Let the state take over watch the news and smoke another tab
And how they’ve won, won with the words of their class
The speechmaker’s not dead come on everybody raise a glass  

You got your long tongue liars, got your so called fliers  
Trying to rub my face in the dirt
You got your so called leaders sucking hope like leaches
Numb the pain so Johnny doesn’t hurt
(Repeat)
