We Were the First

Written by Judah Nagler

i wanted out, so i escaped / you cannot build until you learn to break / when time will tell / what will it say / 'i am not money' / or maybe, 'wait' / you were the first, like the one before you / you got it worse / well, i don't got it, it due / you lost the thirst and drank, but i grew / 'i break the curse' / you say, but i do / i want the pills and the bottle and the excess / i want the bill and the model that collects it / i want the thrill and the throttle and the lexus / i want it all / pay none of the taxes / all of the greats are bested one day / they sigh, 'auf wiedersehen' / sometimes i feel i'm better off doin' the same / until the day we pull back that veil / at least pull back on the reins / i've seen the film and i fall asleep at the end / the end / we will not bend / we will not sway / until you say, / 'i'm at your mercy'
