I am an arms dealer
Fitting you with weapons in the form of words
And I don't really care which side wins
As long as the room keeps singing
That's just the business I'm in

This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
I'm not a shoulder to cry on, but I digress

I'm a leading man and the lies I weave are oh-so intricate, oh-so intricate
I'm a leading man and the lies I weave are oh-so intricate, oh-so intricate

I wrote the gospel on giving up (You look pretty sinking)
But the real bombshells have already sunk (Prima donnas of the gutter)
At night we're painting your trash gold while you sleep
Crashing not like hips or cars
No, more like parties

This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
Bandwagon's full, please catch another

I'm a leading man and the lies I weave are oh-so intricate, oh-so intricate
I'm a leading man and the lies I weave are oh-so intricate, oh-so intricate

All the boys who the dance floor didn't love
And all the girls whose lips couldn't move fast enough
Sing until your lungs give out

This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race (Now you)
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race (Wear out the groove)
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race (Sing out loud)
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race (Oh, oh)
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race

I'm a leading man and the lies I weave are oh-so intricate, oh-so intricate
I'm a leading man and the lies I weave are oh-so intricate, oh-so intricate
