  • I'm like a ghost
    I'll be living in a dirt room
    Waiting for the day to be closer
    To the window when you're home
    I'll be standing by your back door
    Reaching for the knife in my coat
    I'm going to put it to your throat
    Sweaty piggy, you're a bad man
    What a fucking sad way to go
    Your mother raised you as a joke
    I should have wiped away a burden
    Use the curtain in the kitchen to choke
    You

    You think you own me
    You should have known me
    You took the future and the food off my family's plate
    You think you'll use me
    I'm stronger than you
    You take my money, but it's useless
    When see what I do to you
    Look what I do to you

    Oh god then you awoke
    You started screaming through the duct tape
    Don't ever think I'm letting you go
    I'm busy digging you a hole
    Now you'll be living in a dirt room
    Breathing through the straw of your own
    Come on
    I really think that this is fun for the money
    I'll make it comfy for the time wasted making you rich
    I want to cover you in ants, bees and honey
    Then take a picture for the cover of our album!

    You think you own me
    You should have known me
    You took the future and the food off my family's plate
    You think you'll use me
    I'm stronger than you
    You take my money, but it's useless
    When see what I do to you

    You think you own me
    You should have known me
    You took the future and the food off my family's plate
    You think you'll use me
    But I'm stronger than you
    You take my money, but it's useless
    When see what I do to you

    And now I see you, oh
    'Cause your back's against the wall
    And finally you're mine
    You're mine

    You think you own me
    You should have known me
    You took the future and the food off my family's plate
    You think you'll use me
    I'm stronger than you
    You take my money, but it's useless
    When see what I do to you

    I really think that this is fun for the money
    We'll make you comfy for the time wasted making you rich
    I want to cover you in ants, bees and honey
    Then take a picture for the cover of our album! Writer/s: CHARLES BRITTON III HUDSON, JEREMY FURSTENFELD, JUSTIN S FURSTENFELD, MATT NOVESKY, RYAN DELAHOUSSAYE
