Right now the world feels like it’s coming to an end
The market just crashed and sometimes I have to rob my friends
Because I can’t get a job so I have to pretend
I’m a good person and that I’m an honest man

This is my plan, first give a service
Have my chin up and don’t look nervous
But I’m a farmer; they’ll think I’m worthless
Oh well, act like you’re the purest

Now that I have their trust it’s time to break it
Because I’m doing it for me, how else am I supposed to make it
Kill them, take their money then leave them naked
Because I need clothes too so just straight up take it

Times like these only the strong survive
I can’t be nice because if I am ill die
I keep telling myself all these lies
Like people need me and I’m a good person inside
