Mike Lacey

Poor little rich boys on the news
Once had it all, now singin' the blues
Thinks cookin' books don't make a crime
If it ruins lives you're doin' time

Awful hard to pity you, we got our own lives to do

Chorus 1
Yer saying it's so bad
Wasted every break you had
If you think your world's a wreck
Cash your reality check

Right down the street's a family man
Whose double life takes secret plans
When his deception is exposed
He'd better hide as rumors grow

Ain't the man that we thought we knew, rehab's comin' next for you

Chorus 2
Fake tears, as if you care
Seek redemption through a prayer
Can't fix the lives you wrecked
Write your reality check

Attorneys sue like it's a sport
Love spreading misery in court
Justice was blind before your lies
Hardly a shock that you're despised

Lost a conscience long ago, now you're reapin' what you sow

Chorus 3
I doubt you have a soul
Power's your only goal
You'll never get respect
Just a big reality checks

Repeat Chorus 2

Repeat Chorus 1
