    Lyrics

    Shh quiet, you might piss somebody off
    Like me motherfucker, you've been at it for too long
    While you feed off others insecurities
    You stand in front of me and bite the hand that feeds

    (Self-righteousness is wearing thin)
    Lies inside your head your best friend
    (Heart bleeds but not for fellow man)
    Broken glass, your fake reflection

    Telling them it's all for something real
    Don't respect the words you're speaking
    Gone too far, acclaim!!

    So how does it feel to know that someones kid in the heart of America
    Has blood on their hands, fighting to defend your rights
    So you can maintain the lifestyle that insults his family's existence
    Well, where I'm from we have a special salute we aim high in the air
    Towards all those pompous assholes who spend their days pointing fingers

    Fuck you

    Shh quiet, you might piss somebody off
    Like the heartbeat of this country when antagonized too long
    I'll be damned if you count me in as part of your generous hypocrisy
    Collecting enemies

    (Tabloid gossip queen, worthless man)
    There's no need for us to bury you
    (Selfish agenda, once again)
    Right this way, you've dug your own grave

    Telling them it's all for something real
    Don't respect the words you're speaking
    Gone too far, acclaim!

    All the way from the east to the west
    We've got this high society looking down on this very foundation
    Constantly reminding us that
    our actions are the cause of all their problems
    Pointing the fingers in every direction
    Blaming their own nation for who wins elections
    They've never contributed a fucking thing
    to the country they love to criticize

    Excuse the obscene, ignore the untrue
    Depictions we see, try and get through
    Admitting mistakes can't hurt
    I'm not the last but I sure ain't the first

    Shh quiet, you might piss somebody off

    (Self-righteousness is wearing thin)
    Lies inside your head your best friend
    (Heart bleeds but not for fellow man)
    Broken glass, your fake reflection

    Telling them it's all for something real
    Don't respect these words you speaking
    Gone too far, acclaim.
