paper gods (feat. mr hudson)
oh, the paper gods in the sky of grey
all the fools in town are ruling today today

bow to the paper gods in a world that is paper thin
fools in town are ruling now
bleeding from paper cuts, money for head shots
fools leading
who needs it?

hey, you're gonna want it all!
the talking man declares
go running to be first in line
for what? nobody cares
the next thing you must have
find piece with matching bag
it's nothing to be glad about, or sad
when you forget about it.
and while the race is on, the rats
will run the street
the slaver in a sweatshop putting
trainers on your feet
and walking through the rain
oblivious to pain
to shelter from the blame without a
reason to complain about it
oh oh oh, don't complain about it
oh oh oh, don't complain about it
oh oh oh, forget about it
oh oh oh oh

bow to the paper gods
in a world that is paper thin
the fools in town are ruling now
bleeding from paper cuts
money for head shots
fools leading
who needs it?

she's staring out in underwear from
your computer screen
it's all on sale for dirty cash
we can wash it clean
so hang it out online, confess
and you'll feel fine, and if you got the time
to spare we want to know…
whose name you're wearing
and when the final curtain finally
comes down
we'll all be in the party room
no wiser as to how the total human race
became a basket case
it's nothing to lose face about
it's really not our place to doubt it

bow to the paper gods
in a world that is paper thin
fools in town are ruling now
bleeding from paper cuts,
money for head shots
fools leading
who needs it?

paper walls falling down
paper house, paper town
the paper gods falling down
paper world is falling down
paper walls falling down
paper house, paper town
paper gods falling down
paper world is falling down
falling down, falling down, falling…

bow to the paper gods
in a world that is paper thin
fools in town are ruling now
bleeding from paper cuts
money for head shots
fools leading
who needs them?

all the paper gods
in a sky full of grey
all the fools in town
are ruling today
today

paper gods
