Don't Believe A Word

Album: Ursa Major (2009)
  • Cigarette fingers ember stain
    Incriminating notes on a paper chain
    Did you ever get the feeling that you've been cheated'
    I wanna bust out I've not been defeated
    You're all strong bones they hold no water
    Got the big fake smile, you just get sadder
    Time wound down and you've been cached
    Because half measured shows are all half ass
    How did we ever end up this way'
    And I fall numb in disarray
    I'm cultivating my ignorance
    Didn't we have some standards once'
    I hate you and your cowboy boots oh
    You wanted clever, and you settled for stupid
    You threw it all away so indiscreet
    Like a bad boy ready so dirty little cheat

    It's a shallow vicious state of mind
    Like an angry joke, getting dumped online
    Give me back my photos will you'
    You fucking whore I'll kill you

    (Don't believe it) Don't believe a word
    (Don't believe) Just keep on breathing
    (Don't believe it) Cause pretty soon
    (Don't believe) That dead King George will wake up screaming

    Our soundtrack is the slowest thing
    Some will ache, replace the sting
    Rap stars brag about shooting each other'
    Whatever happened to brother brother
    We like thugs when they attack
    And we like crime when it's black on black
    And isn't this you you cold hearted fake'
    Isn't this more than you can take'

    (Don't believe it) Don't believe a word
    (Don't believe) Just walk on by
    (Don't believe it) This mobile gas
    (Don't believe) And then we all can all get high

    (Don't believe it) Don't believe a word
    (Don't believe) Just keep on breathing
    (Don't believe it) Cause pretty soon
    (Don't believe) That dead King George will wake up screaming

    Wake up screaming (ha ha ha)
    Wake up screaming (Oh)

    Yeah! (yeah!)
    Yeah! (yeah!)
    Yeah! (yeah!)
    Yeah! (yeah!)

    Round up on the big lynch pins
    I hope we don't get fooled again
    All sensation makes no sense
    You got some insane confidence
    I can't find myself I can't change the station
    In this cold damp cellar in this pity nation
    Scandalize now with such ease
    America, give me back my keys
    Say hello to soldiers squeeze
    The trigger on fake enemies
    We're all aboard, and all alone
    Till you come home
    Bring us home

    (Don't believe it) Don't believe a word
    (Don't believe) Just keep on breathing
    (Don't believe it) Cause pretty soon
    (Don't believe) That dead King George will wake up screaming

    (Don't believe it) Don't believe a word
    (Keep on breathing) Don't believe a word
    (Don't believe it) Don't believe a word
    (Don't believe it) Don't believe a word Writer/s: Stephan Jenkins, Tony Fredianelli
