  • East mode, everybody striking a pose
    Everybody's taxing my soul
    They say it's all the rage, to never act your age
    So what you're gonna hit me with next?
    Darwin or a Crucifix?
    So why you wanna do me like this?
    It's always so extreme, but what's it really mean?

    When you're begging for a brick
    Just to throw it back and forth
    And you call eachother sick
    Yeah you're coming back for more
    Back for more of what you love
    Back for more of what you hate
    You can't stop (stop, stop!)
    'Cause you're already too late

    So you kill your conscience, cry yourself to sleep
    Kill your conscience, better you than me
    You're all plugged in, ready and rehearsed
    Do your best, do your worst, show me where it hurts
    Kill your conscience
    Kill your conscience
    Yeah you're all plugged in, ready and rehearsed
    Do your best, do your worst, show me where it hurts

    Good luck (good luck)
    Everybody's passing the buck (the buck)
    Praying that they're making the cut (the cut)
    They'll sell you by the pound and keep you underground

    While you're scratching at the gates
    Screaming "come on, let me in!"
    Like a fully-loaded zombie throwing caution to the wind
    Back for more of what you love
    Back for more of what you hate
    You can't stop (stop, stop!)
    'Cause you're already too late

    So you kill your conscience, cry yourself to sleep
    Kill your conscience, better you than me
    You're all plugged in, ready and rehearsed
    Do your best, do your worst, show me where it hurts
    Kill your conscience
    Kill your conscience
    Yeah you're all plugged in, ready and rehearsed
    Do your best, do your worst, show me where it hurts

    Kill your conscience, cry yourself to sleep
    Kill your conscience, better you than me
    You're all plugged in, ready and rehearsed
    Do your best, do your worst, show me where it hurts
    Kill your conscience
    Kill your conscience
    Yeah you're all plugged in, ready and rehearsed
    Do your best, do your worst, show me where it hurts

    Kill your conscience
    Kill your conscience
    Kill your conscience
    Kill your conscience
