lived in a castle on high

But now they're dressing down

slither into suits and their ties

The song remains the same

They just keep changing the name

Monopolize. Make your world their prize.

Well it's about time you paid more mind

to noticing the signs that honor only YOUR majesty

'Cause that's the one thing

The way to slay a king. Never let 'em in.

Their purpose is to put you away -- and keep you that way
