  • Mood:
Held like water in your shaking hands
Are all the defeats the day demands
10 to 6 or 9 to 5
Trying dying to survive
Never knowing what survival means

Leave the apartment to buy alcohol
An art diploma's on the bathroom wall
Pick at the plaster chipped away
Survey some stunning tooth decay
And list the cat in the
Impending
Class
War

Stay a bad day down here dear
Make believe we're strong
I wrote some protest song
But maybe we shall overcome someday
Overcome the stupid things we say

Say i needed more than this
Say i needed one more kiss
You left that light on
Way
To
Long
Now

Let's plant a bomb at city hall
Let's kill an MLA
Talk the night away
You'll call in sick
I'll quit the word games that i play
Swear i weigh more than half
Believe it
When
I
Say

Somewhere love and justice shine
Cynicsm falls asleep
Tyrrany talks to itself
Sappy slogans all come true
We forget to feed our fear
