    Mother, at my first breath
    Every paragraph was set
    As I inhaled the scent of debt
    Mother, that first stolen air
    Taken as a legal sign
    On papers saying I'm not mine

    "We crown you, the King of Loss...
    Better get on your feet
    Best be one of us
    Better get yourself on the list
    For success
    Dress up as a State investment
    Charm the press
    A breed from the seed of only
    One short breath"

    Mother, hence we cry:
    Some of us are free to stand
    Most of us are bound to lie
    In those bloodstained beds
    No one can afford to pay
    The prices on their babies' heads

    I am the King of Loss!
    For every dear smile I feel I'm not one of us
    "An ivory coin for every plus on your stone"

    "One more governmental blade
    Now drawn from its sheath
    Quite a bargain I'd say since either way
    You will live by the show of our teeth!"

    Mother, I wish that we could talk
    You see
    I'm not fit to play this game
    Bound by its rules just the same
    My talents turned to talons
    Every monetary pile
    Will buy me a precious smile...

    So smile for the King of Loss
    Feed from the juices
    Bleeding from this cross
    Then tell me our lives mean more
    Than this vain thirst!

    "A governmental blade
    Drawn from its private sheath
    Quite a bargain I'd say, since either way
    You'll be living by the show of our..."

    I hold up my head
    This was my life
    Now I'm with the dead
    So I lay my bare neck
    This is your call
    Dub a king or a wreck

    (Mother, listen to me mother)

    This was my life
    This is your call

    Is this all I am? Is this all I'll be?
    This is not enough!

    We're all crying for respect and attention
    We're all dying for a painless redemption!
    This is not what I wanted
    But for every drop of blood I lost myself
    I, too, lay bleeding on the sidewalk...

    Long live the dying king

    "A governmental blade
    Now drawn from its private sheath
    Quite a bargain I'd say, since either way
    I will live by the show of your teeth..."
