Verse 1:
When the skin you've been born in
All them cards you've been playing
They're always handing everything your way
You learn to work all the angles
And get your conscience entangled
In a web of lies that you're self-made

Verse 2:
Ain’t got no time for confession
Always working hard at covering up your messes
Gotta keep on guarding that spotless name
Climb on the back of your neighbor
Act like don’t need a savior
As if you could ever pay your way

One day the privilege well's gonna run dry
One day you’re gonna need someone on your side
One day the system's gonna spit you out
And you'll find that love's the only treasure you've found

Verse 3:
Keep building higher and higher
There's always more to acquire
Soon everybody's gonna speak your tongue
You feel so tall in your tower
But just a small taste of power
Might leave you babbling on your own, when


We're building castles on our graves
But all the while we're still afraid
Cause this only ends one way
