about

Just having fun with words.

lyrics

You wanna be judge, jury and executioner but
when killing the jury is institutional
where do you stand?
With your neck in your own noose, with the trapdoor lever in your hand.

In a dog-eat-dog world you wanna be the alpha male.
Top dog's all gotta fight tooth or nail in a cirlce.
Ouroboros and closing holes,
the next top dog's already tagged your toes.

Four billion years of evolution lead to you,
you look at where we're going
we've got four billion years left to go.

Pocket full of conmen with tricks up their sleeves
never ending handkerchiefs just in case they sneeze
fool me once,
fool me twice, fool me for the rest of my life.

Sift through the broken bottles in your yard
warming up the lonely cockles of your heart by the nickel.
The stranglehold on what's been sold doesn't turn your glitter into gold.

Four billion years of evolution lead to you,
you look at where we're going
we've got four billion years left to go.
