lyrics

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
