lyrics

The situation of your home ain’t quite accurate
The flames of war crawl over your land
You've got to understand it’s about a pile of money
That’s why I built my house on a pile of bodies

That cynical game was not my idea
But I can’t deny my profits
If you cannot vault the pit with the pikes
The way to fortune is locked for you


Bad luck this time for your ride
To the ivory tower
The graves of those who drowned tonight
Won’t see any flower
Well I don’t know where I can swim
At the coast of Italy
There’re countless corpses miles away
That the sea devours


Those of you who made the crossing
Are crowded in a rotten hole
See our friendship is quite one-sided
We couldn’t give you much more

All of our wealth is more important than you
The place in the sun is rare
Even if you could vault the pit with the pikes
The place of fortune is locked for you


Bad luck this time for your ride
To the ivory tower
The graves of those who drowned tonight
Won’t see any flower
Well I don’t know where I can swim
At the coast of Italy
There’re countless corpses miles away
That the sea devours


Better luck next time for you ride
To the ivory tower
The graves of those who drowned tonight
Won’t see any flower
Well I don’t know where I can swim
At the coast of Italy
There’re countless corpses miles away
That the sea devours
That the sea devours
That the sea devours
