Drinking From The Trough of a Tyrant's Piss

lyrics

you were scrolling through facts on a friday night
one hand pointed as you prophesied
another victory comes with another drink
stroke me again i’ll tell you what to think

you’re an ignorant fuck and your back is bending
crossing another one out i count another lemming
i’ve read books on power and the art of war
i give looks that cower you on my floor

the greatest pain is to be in your presence
i cannot plug my ears i suffer another vengeance
scorn on everyone you see
scorn on everyone you see

so fucked full of lies remember this
while drinking from the trough of a tyrant’s piss
i was right before you were wrong
get on your knees where you belong

now i have you at my feet
reciting everything i say
your tongue sounding so sweet
i’m coming to the news from today

you were out of my sight when i screamed your name
reciting everything i say
practice cleaning my feet with dying hair
rocking me gently in my chair

repeat

i have stockpiled for the flood
and I’ll swallow every last drop

now i have you at my feet
reciting everything i say
your tongue sounding so sweet
i’m coming to the news from today

hear my words, abandon fist
drinking from the trough of a tyrant’s piss
hear my words, abandon fist
drinking from the trough of a tyrant’s piss
