about

I wrote these lyrics months ago, and wondered when i would get a chance to test the song out. i thought it may be a bit overhanded, but it turned out alright. and the audience seemed to dig it.

lyrics

This is the age of forgetting
where parts and plans don't match
and your stars to stripes are lax
and falling down.

time slips to stagnant
and we forgive our haze with pills.
you maintain yr Armies with yr babies
and the people are ghosts

the slippin'
so urban, so fiction
as your science keep churning
to learn how to cope without heart.

so,
your city's not burning
and your populace not warring
but your justice is unseemly

and your leaders are greedy
and the game is building
so we are disappearing
and our comfort is slipping
as our worldview is shrinking

so,
the pimp is the profit
and your master is elated
to see these angels
dyin'
dyin'
