Original video
I get violent when I'm fucked up
I get silent when I'm drugged up
I want excitement, if I don't get none, I go wild

I don't know what the fuck to do about it
If you play the game, you get nothing out of it
So find out for yourself, tryin' to be good

You better cheat cheat
No reason to play fair
Cheat cheat, you can't get anywhere
Cheat cheat if you can't win

Nobody knows what the fuck they're doin'
It's beyond their control, Friday night's a ruin
If you wanna survive, you better learn how to lie

You better cheat cheat
No reason to play fair
Cheat cheat, you can't get anywhere
Cheat cheat if you can't win

Don't you use the rules
They're not for you, they're for the fools
And you're a fool if you don't know that
So use the rules, you fuckin' fool
