    Lyrics

    Some people got more kicks than halfpence
    Crying for attention, like cracks in the pavement
    All of this pointed, like perfect TV
    When you're sowing the wind, you reap the whirlwind

    Your flexible nature, serving no purpose
    Like a terrible artist, your using no shadow
    The king of this castle, is pulling new shades
    Gilding the lilies, and all of them fakes

    Who gets the mansions? We get the ruins
    Same old story
    Who gets the mansions? We get the ruins
    Same old story, same old story

    Typical tragic, small house and small street
    Narrow the outlook, small minded complete
    The emperor's new clothes, get clearer and clearer
    Dictate to the fingers, that tighten the trigger

    Who gets the mansions? We get the ruins
    Same old story
    Who gets the mansions? We get the ruins
    Same old story, same old story, same old story

    And the king of this castle is pulling new shapes
    Life is a poison, it begins at home
    Pride is a trinket, security blanket
    Tangle the spiders on the webs that we weave

    Who gets the mansions?
    Same old story
    We get the ruins

    Who gets the mansions? We get the ruins
    Same old story
    Who gets the mansions? We get the ruins
    Same old story
