A hell of a thing, hanging a man
Taking everything he has and all he'll ever have
Small irony, that man surely created me

Held by his reins until his last breath
These tiny spells on me, increments of death
By the millions, millions are being taken

I am you
I am everything you own
I am you

The things we do for love, the tribes we aim to please
Entitlement and title through dues and monthly fees
Interest, interest, time,
All that you risk acquired

Character capacitate
Collateral and conditioning
You say CREDETE
I say believe in me

I'm not accountable
Do you rush the queue alone?
Competitors and predators and drones
These western settlers
I've always warned them
Just like your grandad said
Never spend what you don't have

I am you, I am you
I am everything you own
I am you

I am you, I am you
I am everything you owe
I am you

I am you, I am you
I am everything you own
