  • Take
    Take what you can
    You're entitled to the prize
    Fill you up with
    All that you can take
    Take what you can
    You're the princess and the prince
    Fill you up with
    All that you can take

    I heard that you were the last to leave
    The party you just had to see
    Where everybody had to be
    The best in town
    Heard they tried to kick you out
    'Cause you were foaming at the mouth
    Holding ground you had to play
    'Cause who knows what you'll win today

    You've got to figure out how high you'll get by doing nothing
    Opportunity presents itself at every turn
    Stick around you never know whose ego you can stroke
    Which mask to wear a rung to climb to suck up
    Stick around you never know whose ego you can stroke
    A rung to climb a pill a line a mask to hide your face

    I'm breaking out
    Don't keep me down
    I'm missing out
    Don't keep me
    Hey I'm freaking out
    Don't turn me down

    You're getting there
    For sure
    Real close
    All over the bathroom floor
    Who's getting it
    You sure
    We need more
    Never mind the night's

    Run
    Out

    Eyes are spinning
    Look at me
    You're winning
    Can't you see
    Lights colliding
    You're spun out
    You're climbing straight to the top

    Your fortune still waiting
    You keep climbing
    Straight to the top
    Your fortune still waiting
    Yeah on your hands and knees so you can take

    All that you can
    All that you can
    All that you can
    All that you can take

    It's getting so close that you can taste it
    It's getting so close that you can taste it

    Whoa!

    It's getting so close
    You're getting it
    For sure
    Your clothes all over the bedroom floor

    Who's getting it?
    Are you sure?
    Need more
    Never mind just get
