I see you had your mind all made up you group of pitiful liars.
Before I woke to face the day, your master plan transpired.
Something told me, this job had more to meet the eye.

My words somewhat deceiving?
Now I'm unwhole.

You've waged a war of nerves
But you can't crush the kingdom

Can't be what your idols are.
Can't leave the scar.
You cry for compensation.
I ask you please just give us

5 minutes alone

I read your eyes, your mind was made up.

A fool.
You used complexion of my skin for a counter
Rascist tool.
You can't burn me, I've spilled my guts out
In the past.
Taken advantage of because you know where

I've come (from) my past.
You've waged a war of nerves
But you can't crush the kingdom

Can't be what your idols are.
Can't leave the scar.
You cry for compensation.
I ask you please just give us

5 minutes alone
