All Hail The Kings Of Trash
Written by Matthew Ryan

Ahhh you must be proud
Cause you got so loud
As you were walking in
And I was walking out

Tonight we're in the hum
Of the blank and dumb
I hate to talk in spades
I hoped we might escape

The whole scene's been took
By parasites and crooks
Souled out and hungry ids
That's where the whole thing slid

And that's the awful truth
And it's a crime on youth
Cause that's the way it went
The wholesale death of innocents

All hail the kings of trash
All hail the kings of trash
All hail the kings of trash
All hail the kings of trash

Don't need to know your name
Because you're all the same
That shiny plastic grin
More heart in mannequins

A manufactured past
Now you're talking trash
Too stupid to rebel
We got Straight To Hell

And that's the awful truth
And it's a crime on youth
Cause that's the way it went
The wholesale death of innocents

All hail the kings of trash
All hail the kings of trash
All hail the kings of trash
All hail the kings of trash
