"You, I trusted your intentions,
The trust you took advantage of.
Now you are sitting in the hole
That you dug around yourself."

"You've lied so much you think it's true.
Do you know what the truth is?
How does someone get to be like you,
The king of all excuses?"

"Is she your partner in deception
Or caught inside the web you've spun?
Did you forget that you were family,
The damage you have done?"

Do you know what the truth is?

-BRIDGE 2X-
"This time, you're gonna get it,
All the things you've done coming back to you.
This time, you're gonna feel it,
Your conscience slowly suffocating you.
In time, you will regret it.
Say goodbye to all the things you've gotten used to.
Life will find a way to bring this karma to you.
Life will find a way to bring this karma to you."
-CHORUS 2X-
"You've lied so much you think it's true.
Do you know what the truth is?
How does someone get to be like you,
The king of all excuses?
Everything must come full circle.
It kills me that I feel this hurtful.
I wonder what your children think of you,
The king of all excuses."
