lyrics

When I woke up today
The strings of fate they were pulling away
To the outskirts of town, palm reader wise seer
'Cause I've got no fear or nothing to lose

Could things have ended up otherwise?
A green California sun in my eyes, no
But you took me by my red left hand
Cut your feathered lines your master plan

Understand
I didn't want to hurt no one

This color my color this color means plunder
Manifest destiny lightening and thunder, our hunger
My colors say, knuckle under
Or else render your heart to be torn asunder

Look back how the story goes
The founding magnificos
Their talents bold and bright, their talons were open wide
XY the birth of the nation
XX guilty by association

I didn't want to hurt no one
I didn't want to hurt anyone
I didn't, I didn't

This is a star-crossed place (star-crossed place)
I'm in a madness state (madness state)
I saw someone I knew (someone I knew)
Was it me, was it you (me or you)

I am black I am blue
Made of lies and truth
I saw someone I knew
Was it me was it you?

Before you go reaching into another dark pool
You fool you fool you fool
The siren's song sinks the sailor as a rule
You fool you fool you fool

You're a fool, a fool, you're a fool
The bed that you made is the one that you're laying in
You're a fool, a fool, you're a fool
The bed that you made is the one that you're laying in

The bed that you made is the one that you're laying in
The bed that you made is the one that you're laying in
Yeah, yeah

Tianxia, Ghengis Khan
The empires wax and wane
Pax Romana, Americana, call it what you may
Fortune teller, tell me please, what's the antidote?
For dominance
For prominence
Oh Providence!

This is a star-crossed place (star-crossed place)
Try to fill an empty space (empty space)
I saw someone I knew (someone I knew)
Was it me, was it you (me or you)

We are red we are blue
Made of lies and truth
I saw someone I knew
Was it me was it you?

Before you go reaching into another dark pool
You fool you fool you fool
The siren's song sinks the sailor as a rule
You fool you fool you fool

You're a fool, a fool, you're a fool
The bed that you made is the one that you're laying in
Don't be cruel, oh cruel, don't be cruel
The bed that you made is the one that you're laying in

I didn't want to hurt no one
I didn't want to hurt anyone
I didn't hurt anyone
I didn't hurt anyone....
