Baby don’t you wanna hear what I have to say?
They’ve told you not to be like me, that I’m just a useless fool.
But baby it’s hard to see when everything you’ve heard is smoke and mirrors.
And it’s time you lift that veil from your eyes and see where this lie will lead.

Don’t swallow that lie. Spit it back up and sing this with me.
One. Two. Ready.

Give it up all you liars and thieves.
Give it up, you’re killing passion with greed.
We’re all just prisoners.

Maybe I’m just enraged because I played the game for thirteen years,
and they say I have to follow through or stay irresolute.
Yet I watch them rob the youth and swear to them that it’s a necessity.
To turn boy into a man, this has to be the only way.

It’s the only way. And they say, “Join or die.” Fund that lie.
How do I put this lightly?

Give it up for all you liars and thieves.
Give it up, you’re killing passion with greed.
We’re all just prisoners.

I won’t be a victim.
I’ll work for distinction not a printed page.
I won’t be a victim.
I just can’t take it anymore, how you

Prey on the minds of the young and defenseless.
Watch as they fall for the lies and deception.
If you hear a lie for long enough and loud enough,
it won’t be long until you believe it.

It’s just a matter of time.
And you better watch your back because you’ve made an enemy.
I’m your enemy.

Give it up for you liars and thieves.
Give it up, you’re killing passion with greed.
We’re all just prisoners.
I’m not your prisoner.
