I want to keep my money,
and give away absolutely nothing
to the government who moderates my spending
and obliterates depending on what time of the year
brutality is here

In the form of income tax,
I'd rather take a fucking axe
to my face. Blow up this place
with you all in it
I'd do it in a minute.

If I could write off your murder,
I'd save all of my receipts.
Because I'd rather you be dead
than lose a tiny shred
of what I made this fiscal year.

I'd rather you be dead,
than ponder parting with my second home.
I'd rather you be dead
than consider not opening a restaurant.

I'd rather you be dead.
I'd rather you be dead.

Prepare the laser beam.
We're gonna use it tonight.
Engage the laser beam.
It's gonna end your life.

We're gonna use it tonight.

If I could write off your murder,
I'd save all of my receipts
because I'd rather you be dead
than lose a tiny shred
of what I made this fiscal year.

I'd rather you be dead,
than ponder parting with my second home.
I'd rather you be dead
than consider not opening a restaurant.

I'd rather you be dead.
I'd rather you be dead now.

Be dead now.
Be dead now.
Be dead now.
Be dead.

    General Commentwhere it has the ? mark in "than consider losing all my evil (?) restaraunts" there are no words there. if you listen closely you dont hear anything between "evil restaraunts"

    General Commenti put that (?) there to signify that i wasn't sure wether or not Nathan said "evil." but yeah, i'm 100% sure he says evil.

    General CommentI think this is the entire song minus one word I'm not sure of.... listen closely...
