    [Verse 1]
    I'ma be that nail in your coffin/Sayin' that I softened?
    I was duckin' down to reload
    So you can save your petty explanations/I don't have the patience
    Before you even say it I know
    You let your pride or your ego/Talk slick to me
    Know/That is not the way I get down
    And look at how you lose your composure
    Now let me show ya/Exactly how the breaking point sounds

    [Chorus]
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    [Verse 2]
    What is it you want me to tell ya?/I am not the failure
    I would rather live and let be
    But you came with the right kinda threat to
    Push me to let you/Know you can't intimidate me
    Disrespect me so clearly/Now you better hear me
    That is not the way it goes down
    You did it to yourself and it's over
    Now let me show ya/Exactly how the breaking point sounds

    [Chorus] x2
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    [Bridge]
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!

    [Chorus]
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    It's greed, not pride.

    why do you think, that the song isn't good? I think it's an fantastic one (much better than the half of a thousand suns... ->my opinion)

    I fucking love this song, and Mike's absolutely badass. I quite clearly recall everyone losing their shit on the shoutbox when Mike came in, after we were first WTF? at the videogame intro.

    I know it's a minor nit-pick, but I think the line "You let your pride or your ego/Talk slick to me No/That is not the way I get down" is really "You let your pride or your ego/Talk slick to me
    Know/That is not the way I get down" It makes a lot more sense.

    So with Hybrid's corrections:

    [Verse 1]
    I'ma be that nail in your coffin/Sayin' that I softened?
    I was duckin' down to reload
    So you can save your petty explanations/I don't have the patience
    Before you even say it I know
    You let your pride or your ego/Talk slick to me
    Know/That is not the way I get down
    And look at how you lose your composure
    Now let me show ya/Exactly how the breaking point sounds

    [Chorus]
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    [Verse 2]
    What is it you want me to tell ya?/I am not the failure
    I would rather live and let be
    But you can't make the right kinda threat to
    Push me to let you/No you can't intimidate me
    Disrespect me so clearly/Now you better hear me
    That is not the way it goes down
    You did it to yourself and it's over
    Now let me show ya/Exactly how the breaking point sounds

    [Chorus] x2
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    [Bridge]
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!

    [Chorus]
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    Chester sounds so victorious in the chorus, it's amazing. I love the lyrics, expecially the verses.

    In the second verse I hear:

    "But you came with the right kinda threat to
    Push me to let you/Know you can't intimidate me"
