lyrics

1st Verse

Rest in peace, baby boom
Wave goodbye to your dreams
Happy birthday, heroin
Congratulations, amphetamines

1st Pre-chorus

I'm not so good at mending fences
I'd rather burn them down
I wish you could see me smile
When I bury you, when I put you in the ground

You're not my problem,
My cross to bear, not anymore

Chorus

You should know your days are numbered
Fraudulent, usurped the crown
Inadequates always hunger for power
The fish will rot from the head straight down

2nd Verse

What do you believe in?
Where do you stand?
You're a mongrel dog
With your head in the sand

Who holds your leash?
Who pulls your chain?
What's at stake here?
What will you gain?

2nd Pre-chorus

You still think you're all alone
Your experience is singular
No perspective, no objective
Inside your head - that's all you've ever known

You're not my problem,
My cross to bear, not anymore

2nd Chorus

You should know your days are numbered
Fraudulent, usurped the crown
Inadequates always hunger for power
The fish will rot from the head straight down

Bridge

A pariah is playing messiah
I won't try, I won't pretend,
I'll never claim that we're friends
I won't embrace a fantasy,
I'll disappoint my enemies
30 years down the drain,
Spinning in circles, caught in the rain,
Caught out in the rain

3rd Verse

Still no good at mending fences
I'd rather burn them down
I wish you could see me smile
When I bury you
When I put you in the ground

You're not my problem
My cross to bear, not anymore

3rd Chorus

You should know your days are numbered
Fraudulent, usurped the crown
Inadequates always hunger for power
The fish will rot from the head straight down
From the head straight down
