    Take off your shoes
    Open the gin
    Too late to sleep
    Too early to sin
    The 20th floor makes the curtains Grin
    And the city folk revere us as kings

    The shimmering lights
    have been humbled below
    Tangled in steel
    With an ethereal glow
    The merchants downstairs don't seem to know
    Of the fortunes that their suffering brings

    And We'll lie and we'll cheat
    And we'll steal and we'll love it
    And in time you'll learn that there's no one to trust
    No heroes, no angels, no saints, no justice
    The universe is ours
    God don't have a thing on us

    Look at your face
    There's Blood in your eye
    Go rest your head
    and all your worries will Die
    Give me the keys to the castle and I
    Will surely hold your legend in place

    The dawn is so close
    It's creeping within
    And all of the lights
    Have been dimmed by the gin
    Your flame has gone out at the drop of a pin
    The cause of which will never be traced

    And We'll lie and we'll cheat
    And we'll steal and we'll love it
    And in time you'll learn that there's no one to trust
    No heroes, no angels, no saints, no justice
    The universe is ours
    God don't have a thing on us

    It's a beautiful and untouchable
    kind of world we live
    We're capable of the unthinkable
    And the power that it gives
    We're that indelible force
    That nature resists
    And it's just a matter of time
    Before another one enlists

    And We'll lie and we'll cheat
    And we'll steal and we'll love it
    And in time you'll learn that there's no one to trust
    No heroes, no angels, no saints, no justice
    The universe is ours
    God don't have a thing on us
