I secured my seat in a mess of bullshit a long time ago
And I think I know a thing or two about running this town with an iron frown

I could be the one to lead you into battle, barrels empty
Could you be the one to lead them?
No one follows, they’re all screaming

“You’re a cocksucker with an insatiable thirst for putting yourself first”
So bend right over instead of pleading your case just to save face

The more you hate, your clarity gets stripped away
The more you wait, your anger is an unending fate
Till the day you make a promise to yourself to realize
Until the day you wake up screaming
Cause this life, it owes you nothing
Haven’t spoken so quietly in a long time
I can barely breathe
But I made a promise to myself that I intend to keep

I'm securing my seat
Think I know a thing or two about running this town with an iron frown
You’re a bad actor with an insatiable thirst for putting yourself first
So bend right over instead of pleading your case just to save face
