Generation Annihilation

I don’t think you understand
Your reason lost in bullshitland
The answers, the truth
Beyond your grasp
Your solutions just illusions
From the throne of control
Will be your last gasp

The Machine Tomorrow Today
This is the way we pray
Improvements, efficiencies
Flush out the impurities
Quick, jail the heresy
Rules and fiction theory
Magician’s ingenuity
Trademark perpetuity
Keep it running, running
Incessantly
Indefinitely

When the motor sputters
The tip curses the base,
Damn its unbearable weight
Goading, sewing seeds of hate
Go to work, don’t be late
The fodder pushed harder
With a sucker-punched face
Challenge not rule’s desire
A heavenly space

Blame is the game
And they call you out by name
Sinners, Losers
Spooks and Gooks
The poor, the powerless
We always hold the shame
A bait and switch
A gaslight glow
A pharaoh’s triangle
The lie we sew

Your gods live in Neverland
Your equations, folly
Your leaders, power jolly
Your systems, tragic melancholy
No, I don’t think you grok the jeopardy
The truth is ruthless
Its storm merciless
And its winds blow westerly

Destruction has many faces
Beware its gifts and graces
