Backpfeifengesicht Couldn’t we have guessed it would end this way history is always writ by the rich and acolytes court the apocalypse Jefferson to Marx, turning in their graves pro wrestling, realpolitik narcissist, you paint the world with your shit Alpha male primate dominance display dog-whistles and the art of the dis spray tan backpfeifengesicht Crisis is the price to play the game Beholden to a god without a name Ideology? Brand identity! feel the feels, get revenge in your dreams the best words trickle down in a stream There is only me, sea to shining sea it’s all “truthful hyperbole” what the fuck’s “truthful hyperbole?” Crisis is the price to play the game Beholden to a god without a name All eyes, all eyes on me So my success succeeds Divide, deride, be free All lies, no why, believe That life is only wins and losses Apprentices and bastard bosses You see the grift, but you can’t see the mark

Airstrip One 03:47
Airstrip One Let’s talk about the good old days Not the future we’re afraid to face Because the past is such a peaceful place Remember when you ruled the waves Who were the masters, who were the slaves Who was holding all the gold in that golden age Calling Airstrip One Hey! Hey! Citizen! Do you know what you’ve done Hey! Hey! What’s done is done The finest hour for no one It’s such a simple choice, stay or go true identity, common enemy Where’s the power who’s in control slogans on the side, how we simplify Nameless anger never changed the way the wind blows Who told you you could take yourself away see the swarm, the tide, how they jeopardize The power players with their nameless game in a little time, could be you You only get the choice they let you make Calling Airstrip One Hey! Hey! Citizen! Do you know what you’ve done Hey! Hey! What’s done is done The finest hour for no one Were you fighting for the right side Did you throw away your lifeline Did you wake up on the wrong side of a burning bed Were you fighting for the right side Did you throw away your lifeline Fuck the future for the right lie Calling Airstrip One Hey! Hey! Citizen! Do you know what you’ve done Hey! Hey! What’s done is done The finest hour for no one Were you fighting for the right side Did you throw away your lifeline Did you wake up on the wrong side of a burning bed Were you fighting for the right side Did you throw away your lifeline Fuck the future for the right lie
