  • I pull the switch, all systems down
    And all that's left is the sound
    Of a know-it-all who's left in doubt
    Reaching for stars
    You know you can't get far
    If you don't know who you are
    Fame can leave a scar

    And now I bite the hand
    That's feeding me
    'Cause that hand is so deceiving
    Is there a law against
    Believing in yourself

    They say I'm going nowhere
    And you know that I don't care
    How I'm getting there
    Some things never change
    In this endless game
    They say I'm going nowhere
    And you know that I don't care
    How I'm getting there
    I packed my bags, I wish you well
    I found myself a brand new hell

    You, in your suit and tie
    Try and dictate my life
    With all of your lies
    No respect, no loyalty
    Nobody rides for free
    Especially with me

    And now I bite the hand
    That's feeding me
    'Cause that hand is so deceiving
    Is there a law against
    Believing in yourself

    They say I'm going nowhere
    And you know that I don't care
    How I'm getting there
    Some things never change
    In this endless game
    They say I'm going nowhere
    And you know that I don't care
    How I'm getting there
    I packed my bags, I wish you well
    I found myself a brand new hell

    And now I bite the hand
    That's feeding me
    'Cause that hand is so deceiving
    Is there a law against
    Believing in yourself
    In yourself

    They say I'm going nowhere
    And you know that I don't care
    How I'm getting there
    Some things never change
    In this endless game
    They say I'm going nowhere
    And you know that I don't care
    How I'm getting there
    I packed my bags, I wish you well
    I found myself a brand new hell Writer/s: JOSEPH POOLE, NATHAN JORDISON
