Fake Money

Album: High Noon (2014)
  • Oh you're just a boy, a little banker boy
    Everything's a game, and everyone's your toy
    While everyone was sleeping, dreaming dumb-ass dreams
    You're praying to God's who are meaningless to me
    You're preying on the weak, and those who don't believe

    Oh it's just a game, a silly little game
    Everyone's a fool so you don't take any blame
    Entitled narcissism, you speak courageously
    You're praying to God's who are meaningless to me
    You're preying on the weak and those who don't believe

    Oh, it's nothing but fake money
    Yeah, it's nothing but fake money (oh)

    We're just a bunch of fools, stupid little fools
    In a condensing voice you explain to us the rules
    So share with us your wisdom, about how it's gonna be
    You're praying to God's who are meaningless to me
    You're preying on the weak, and those who don't believe

    Oh you're just a boy, a brazen little boy
    When everything's a battle, there's tactics to deploy
    Standing while you're sleeping, you're always on your feet
    Winning's your religion, the alter where you preach
    It's easy setting fires, we're all just currency
    You're praying to God's who are meaningless to me
    You're preying on the weak, and those who don't believe

    Remember it's nothing but fake money
    Yeah, it's nothing but fake money
    And you're some cowboy at High Noon
    You're playing a board game up in a board room

    Remember it's nothing but fake money
    Yeah, it's nothing but fake money
    And you're some cowboy at High Noon
    You're playing a board game up in a board room

    Remember it's nothing but fake money
    Yeah, it's nothing but fake money
    And you're some cowboy at High Noon
    You're playing a board game up in a board room
