  • Anything we should know about your change? -- How many of them can you string along
    How many of them can you bring to us

    How many of them can you string along
    How long before they all wisen up

    How many of them can you string along
    How many of them can you bring to us

    Turn it up Ringmaster your final lullaby
    Let's see how your genius is fully realised
    The Emperors standing naked, how much longer, can he fake it
    All night, repeat it ten times we've, we've got it

    I know what is expected here, i'm not a child and, i won't be blindsided
    I know what is expected here

    You're the one detached from daily existence
    And i don't like your foolish suits folk hero shtick
    Micro-manage take the sky from touch the people feed the ego(?)
    But look me in the eyes to spout your bullshit

    Darling of every muse or, fair weather friend
    Prance around amphitheaters in your swelled head
    Smoke clears and mirrors shatter, a bargain Broadway, mock Mad Hatter
    Pack it in, please pack it in now, i've got this

    I know what is expected here, i'm not a child and, i won't be blindsided
    I know what is expected here

    You're the one detached from daily existence
    And i don't like your foolish suits folk hero shtick
    Micro-manage take the sky from touch the people feed the ego(?)
    But look me in the eyes to spout your bullshit

    How many of them can you string along
    How many of them can you bring to us
    Would it kill you to lose attention

    How many of them can you string along
    How long before they all wisen up
    Would it kill you to lose attention

    How many of them can you string along
    How many of them can you bring to us
    Would it kill you to lose attention Writer/s: Anand Mathew Wilder, Christopher E Keating
