Lord knows life’s a long road and you can’t go in revoize
It’s high time you walked a straight line cuz you just might find you don’t get a choize
But you’re never one to heed a word to the wise
Confronted with the truth you proffer the lies
Oh no, well then there you go
Layin’ it all down on a sucker bet
It’s hard not to believe you got nothin’ up your sleeve
When you’re runnin’ through the rain without gettin’ wet

I can’t say if your fate’s shaped by how youze raised or how you born
But some day when your luck fades don’t you say you ain’t been warned
A wise man knows that he reaps just what he’s sown
Even a fool knows to leave well enough alone
But not you, that’s not what ya do
You push and pull and work on every nerve
Don’t say it’s a shame cuz you got no one else to blame
When in the end you get just what you deserve

Whoa no it’s long past time you go
You can’t see that you’re welcome is wearin’ thin
Your Rapscallion’s Rhapsody, out of time and way off key
Your bullshit symphony caused the mess we’re in

And now that it’s all come crashin down
Where you gonna run? Where you gonna hide?
Your Rapscallion’s Rhapsody has sealed your destiny
And now you’ll pay for all the time that you lied
And we’re gonna see that justice won’t be denied
And we ain’t gonna stop until we’re satisfied
