Seven sins of wantonness and
 everything that's good is gone
Sell it all for glory from the peers  Silicone priestess scratch the back and
 twists the knife to bone
Kick against the pricks and scrape the shins 

I'm the enemy in the enemies now

 Swallowed the pill
 Drank to the fill
All these things I carry now
In this bittersweet, in this bittersweet now

Try to hold the wrold there sinking,
 swimming in a paper cup
Try to own the one beneath the skin
Held up to the flame 'till singeing 
skin begins to draw and tuck
 Never told there's a chance to win

What couldn't be, wouldn't be now

 Swallowed the pill
 Drank to the fill
All these things I carry now
In this bittersweet, in this bittersweet now

Hold your hands up to the sky and try
so hard to rise above 
But everything is beating down

 Swallowed the pill
 Drank to the fill
All these things I carry now
In this bittersweet, in this bittersweet now
