Minutes went by like minutes
Two by two we all played dead
Subdued by the hands that are spanking us
In the classrooms
And the homes in our heads
Bare you ugly ass for
The pretty light, the pretty lights

Bending for the cheer of the parasites
When they hate you just show them
Bending for the cheer of the parasites
When they hate you just show them

Minutes went by like minutes
Two by two we all played dead

Following the followers
For the following
A gold tooth and a price tag
For a smile
Tempted danger
But the blow was staggering
You blow the stop sign there's
No u-turn, no u-turn

Glamorized and galvanized in the public's eyes
Stardom for x amount of

Glamorized and galvanized in the public's eyes
Stardom for x amount of

Minutes went by like minutes
Two by two we all played dead

Pressure
Don't watch me
Don't watch me

Pressure
Don't watch me
Don't watch me

Pressure
Don't watch me
Don't watch me

They're watching for you to fail
They're watching always for you to fail

Backwash is your mouthful of paradise
Trade your morals for a chance to win (a chance to win)
Dabble in the magic of happiness
Then salvage the energy to grin (the energy to grin)
There is a snapping point there in everyone
Somewhere behind the eyes (behind the eyes)
Potent delivery, a means to an end
It's on a stage, in a screen, in a friend (in a friend)
