Lyrics[edit]

    Haters call me bitch
    Call me faggot call me whitey
    But I am something that you'll never be
    (Hey)
    
    I won't look prettier if I smile for the picture
    Motherfuckers never liked me then and they
    Sure won't like me now
    Don't try to drag me down with your cliché
    Your fake grin fits your faker face
    But I find all my pleasure in your misery
    Yeah
    
    I will step on you on my way up
    And I will step on you on my way down
    I will step on you on my way up
    And I will step on you on my way down
    Haters call me bitch
    Call me faggot call me whitey
    But I am something that you'll never be
    (Hey)
    Haters call me bitch
    Call me faggot call me whitey
    But I am something that you'll never be
    (Hey)
    I'll be your scapegoat, I'll be your saviour
    I'm the better of two evils
    I'm the better of two evils (yeah yeah yeah)
    
    I want to hang all you cattle
    With your VELVET ROPE,
    Motherfuckers step up and get into
    An orderly line.
    I'll show you how to make a muscle.
    It takes less strength to grin than
    It does to spit on all you
    Paparazzinazis
    Yeah
    
    I will step on you on my way up
    I'll fucking step on you on my way down
    Haters call me bitch
    Call me faggot call me whitey
    But I am something that you'll never be
    (Hey)
    Haters call me bitch
    Call me faggot call me whitey
    But I am something that you'll never be
    (Hey)
    I'll be your scapegoat, I'll be your saviour
    I'm the better of two evils
    I'm the better of two evils (yeah yeah yeah)
    
    Don't try to lead me to temptation
    Don't try to lead me to temptation
    Don't try to lead me to temptation
    Don't try to lead me to temptation
    I've been delivered and I already know the way
    
    Haters call me bitch
    Call me faggot call me whitey
    But I am something that you'll never be
    (Hey)
    Haters call me bitch
    Call me faggot call me whitey
    But I am something that you'll never be
    (Hey)
    I'll be your scapegoat, I'll be your saviour
    I'm the better of two evils
    I'm the better of two evils (yeah yeah yeah)
