From the first time that we met
I thought you were so innocent
I didn't understand what you could do
now I see that you will never be
a human being

And you're still running over people
like they're no big fucking deal
stepping over all the bodies looking for stuff to steal
you're just building bridges with everything you take
and burning them behind you with the carnage in you wake

What makes you tick I can't conceive
flat out refuse to believe
your marginal propensity to consume
and now I know
that everywhere you go
you're making enemies

And you're still running over people
like they're no big fucking deal
stepping over all the bodies looking for stuff to steal
you're just building bridges with everything you take
and burning them behind you with the carnage in your wake

Now you're finding it's getting harder
to maintain treading water
and never look back to see what's there
but it's welling up behind you
and one day it's going to find you...

and you won't be running over people
like they're no big fucking deal
or stepping over all the bodies looking for stuff to steal
no more building bridges with everything you take
I hope they all enjoy themselves at your wake
