lyrics

You were raised to be king
In this new royalty
You were born with a
Silver boot up your ass

One percent genius
And as dumb as your luck
You pulled yourself up
With daddy's cash

The little white lies that give you away

These snow blind parasites
Independent as mice
All the suckers are sucked
As they ghost the host

A blue-blooded patriot
The perfect picture of wealth
Who distributes abuse
Disguised as love

All the transparent rage
The coded complaints
The bitter refrains
From the chorus of cranks
The little white lies that give you away

A self fulfilling prophecy
Built on neglect and theft and greed
A faith based legacy of hate
Re-engineered in modern ways

You've never weathered any storm
Sheltered from guilt and free from harm
Blessed from the cradle to the grave

Your pulp-fiction god
Was an atheist
All the little white lies that give you away
