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

They're all strong bones, they hold no water
Got the whiplash smile, this gets harder
Time has wound down and now we've been cached
Because half measures are all half-assed

How did we ever end up this way?
And I don't know I'm in disarray
Cultivating my ignorance
Didn't we have some standards once?

I hate you and your cowboy boots
Though we wanted clever, we settled for stupid
Do it always so indiscreet
Like a bad boyfriend, he's a dirty little cheat

It's a shallow, vicious state of mind
Like an angry chump 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 it) Just keep on breathing
(Don't believe it) Cause pretty soon
(Don't believe it) That good King George will wake up screaming

Our soundtrack is a soulless thing
Some dull 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, cruel hearted fake?
Isn't this more than you can take?

(Don't believe it) Don't believe a word
(Don't believe it) Just walk on by
(Don't believe it) Cause this moment will pass
(Don't believe it) And then we all, can all get high, yeah

(Don't believe it) Don't believe it
(Keep on breathing) Just keep on breathing
(Don't believe it) Oh, pretty soon
(Don't believe it) That good King George will wake up screaming

Wake up screaming
Haha
Wake up screaming
Ohhh

Round up all the big lynch pins
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 corporate, sell-out, hillbilly nation
Scandalize now with such ease
America give me back my keys

Sand it blows, a soldier squeeze
Trigger on fake enemies
We're all abroad and all alone
'Til you come home, bring 'em home

(Don't believe it) Don't believe a word
(Don't believe it) Just keep on breathing
(Don't believe it) Cause pretty soon
(Don't believe it) That good 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
