  • Strip off the weight of morality, and check it at the door
    I'll show you the worst in me
    What I've become

    Blow out the candles I need not a wish
    For I am everything
    Now crawl to my boots and lick
    Kneel before me

    I'ma have my cake and fucking eat you too

    It's my party and i'll die when I want to, die when I want to, die when I want to
    The monster you've made is wearing the crown
    I'll be the king and you be clown
    I'll take the blame (and) parade it around
    You've made me the villain you can't live without

    Reciting violence like poetry
    No you can't sit with us
    Too fashionably plain
    Now say my name
    Forget everything you think you knew of who I used to be
    I look much better as as the enemy

    I'ma have my fucking cake and eat yours too

    I want you low
    I won't let you die
    (I'll) keep you alive
    Just to remind you of what you are not

    It's my party and I'll die when I want to
    You wanna see me fail, but I won't die for you Writer/s: Andrew Fulk, Christopher Cerulli, Herbert Wiener, John Gluck, Michael Kenney, Molly Salley-Ryan, Richard Olsen, Seymour Gottlieb, Wally Gold
