[Verse 1] Cigarette fingers, ember stain Incriminating notes on a paper chain Did you ever get the feeling that you've been cheated? I wanna bust out, I've not been defeated They're all strong bones, they hold no water Got the whiplash smile, this gets harder Time has wound down and now we've been cached Because half measures are all half-assed How did we ever end up this way? And I don't know I'm in disarray Cultivating my ignorance Didn't we have some standards once? I hate you and your cowboy boots Though we wanted clever, we settled for stupid Do it always so indiscreet Like a bad boyfriend, he's a dirty little cheat
[Pre-Chorus] It's a shallow, vicious state of mind Like an angry child getting dumped online Give me back my photos, will you? You fucking whore, I'll kill you!
[Chorus] (Don't believe it) Don't believe a word (Don't believe) Just keep on breathing (Don't believe it) Cause pretty soon (Don't believe) That good King George will wake up screaming
[Verse 2] Our soundtrack is a soulless thing Some dull ache replace the sting Rap stars brag about shooting each other? Whatever happened to "brother, brother"? We like thugs when they attack and We like crime when it's black on black and Isn't this you, cruel hearted fake? Isn't this more than you can take?
[Chorus 2] (Don't believe it) Don't believe it (Keep on breathing) Just keep on breathing (Don't believe it) Oh, pretty soon (Don't believe) That good King George will wake up screaming
[Bridge] Wake up screaming Haha Wake up screaming Ohhh
[Verse 3] Round up all the big lynch pins Hope we don't get fooled again All sensation makes no sense You got some insane confidence I can't find myself, I can't change the station In this corporate, sell-out, hillbilly nation Scandalize now with such ease America give me back my keys
