lyrics

I've got my new haircut and my cigarettes; don't want no strings attached; I'm not your marionette. If only I had the strength to be celibate, I'd let the medicine take my head. Call for the nurse, I've been shaking for days; my life is an instrument of fate; the ensemble isn't fully arranged but the overture paints the blue on my veins. I'M NOT THE KING OF ANYTHING; I'M A ROGUE, I'M A THIEF, I'M ALRIGHT ON MY OWN. I'M NOT THE KING OF ANYTHING BUT ATLEAST I CAN SAY I FUCKED THE PROM QUEEN. I'm a masochistic self-preservationist. You won't break these bones the way you ate my soul. I'm a long-shot statistic. Yeah, another pessimistic reality for you and your sick, phalic fantasies. God damn it, am I insane? Another generation of melted brains procreating in a fucked up world; medicated, we'll suffocate together. It's never safe to stay here for long. I'M NOT THE KING OF ANYTHING; I'M A ROGUE, I'M A THIEF, I'M ALRIGHT ON MY OWN. I'M NOT THE KING OF ANYTHING BUT ATLEAST I CAN SAY I FUCKED THE PROM QUEEN. I don't want to be the tragedy if I could be invincible.
