"The Spoils Of The Spoiled" as written by and Matthew Pryor....
There was honor among the thieves, the only truth I could believe.
But, when the lies applied to me and mine it's better left unsaid.
We could write the hit parade outside The Masquerade.
The headache comes in tidal waves, the spoils of the spoiled.

The lines of history became the scenery.
It's strictly an accessory, an image to uphold.
But, it's all in fun and sin until someone calls it in.
The cycle comes around again.

But, I'm older now,
And don't you know,
I've figured out the antidote.
It overwhelms, engulfed in smoke.
It's all we can to cope.
Goddamn these idle hands as hindsight can.
Our hopes and plans are unfulfilled.

It's overwhelming.
There's a proper place
And time though the bags under your eyes, they don't lie.

    General CommentIt really annoys me when song lyrics are written out in prose.

    I like this song, though. It reminds me of my best friend because he bought me this CD for my birthday last year. I'm not sure why this particular song reminds me of him, but I guess it doesn't matter much.

    My OpinionI have no idea what this song is about, but I love it.
    It instantly gets me in a better mood every time I listen to it. :)

    My favorite part of the song:
    "Goddamn these idle hands, as hindsight can.
    Our hopes and plans are unfulfilled.
    It's over, it's overwhelming."
