You can try but I will not obey, I will not obey
You’re not a God, I’m not your slave
And you can try but there’s no controlling me
I’ve had enough, the shit you preach
You talk too much, swallow your teeth…
Bite your tongue and clench your teeth
Hold your breath and chew your cheek
Shut your mouth and bleed out your lips
Taste the blood foaming, ain’t it sweet?
When the lies aren’t enough to hold you back
And the conversations form into a spiteful god
They’re all talk talk talk, but never say a word
The gossip so lurid, crashing down your worlds
And would they believe you if it was the truth?
They’ll just call you a preacher and a hypocrite
And would they believe you if you told no evil?
Litanies affixed to your names like it’s bullshit
‘Cause there’s no place for an honest man in hell
And there’s no place for sinners wishing you well
All that’s clean is replaced by regurgitation and bile
And people whispering rumours, stuck here a while
So just burn your tongue and swallow your teeth
Choke down your breath and rip off your cheeks
Shut your fucking mouth and bleed out your lips
To taste the gory lies foaming, oh, ain’t it so sweet?
With so much hate, you drown in shame
The angels cry but you won’t change
You built your world on fear and pain
The snakes will surely sing your name…
