Song Lyrics

A hierarchy

Spread out on the nightstand

The spirit of team

Salvation is another chance

A sore loser

Yelling with my mouth shut

A cracking portrait

The fondling of trophies

The null of losing

Can you afford that luxury?

A sore winner

But I`ll just keep my mouth shut

It shouldn`t bother me

But it does

The small victories

The cankers and medallions

<<<The little nothings>>>

They keep me thinking

That someday

I might beat you

But I`ll just keep my mouth shut

It shouldn`t bother me

But it does



You still won`t hear

You still won`t hear

You still won`t hear

You still won`t hear

You still won`t hear

You still won`t hear
