The Lyrics

Oh-oh-oh, yeah

Don't pretend you're sorry, I know you're not
You think you'll steal my power and be the king, yeah, right
I saw through your deception, now you will pay
But first, let's not be idle, let's lose some weight
Can't have you standin' by just like a putz
I want you lower before I string you up

So get down on your knees, lower your head
Might just put off your death
Maybe, can't confirm it
Still want you bowin' in the dust
I don't want our eye-lines to match up
See what the crowd has done?
On top, I deserve it
Want you bowin' in the dust

Maybe I will kill ya, oh, maybe not
Let's see how you prostrate, see, there's technique you might not have got
But don't think I'll let you find time to learn to kneel
'Cause that won't satisfy me, oh-oh, here's the deal:
If you, on your first try, get a "Well done!"
Your head won't be severed, might only lock you up (forever lock you up, yeah-eah)

Are you ignorin' me? I am your king
Wait, that whole "traitor" thing
Never mind, get to it
I want you bowin' in the dust
Do I have to slice your tendons up?
Must write that down, sounds fun
Don't waste time, best use it
To start bowin' in the dust

This can't just be a blunder
I've seen how you scheme, yeah
Can't try out the crown now
You could not resist
Yet you can't parse "on your knees"?

Don't play dumb with me, I will force it (you can't play dumb with me, yeah)
I can't look like a twit
I will nail your feet in (gonna nail your feet in)
So you'll stay bowin' in the dust
Anyone who tries to rise above
Their station will be stuck
On the floor, believe it
They'll be bowin' in the dust

Better get used to it
You'll stay bowin' in the dust (always bowin')
Oh-oh-oh (always bowin')
Keep on bowin' in the dust
Come on, fool, get to it (get to it)
Get to it (start the bowin'), no, no

Where'd this knife in me come from? Oh shit (yeah, I'm screwed)
Guess I waffled again (heh, oh-oh)
Way more talk than action (rambled on, no action)
And now I'm drownin' in my blood (damn)
Clever plan to rile me up, well done (hate non-bowin')
Now you will reign, have fun (fun)
My last thought, I'm wond'rin'
Will the bowin' now be none?
