Set to fail and so derailed, cognitive capacity questioned
as the mob flounder, clutching at straws for hope

Ironically the mob are the straws, straws are weak
You question that or pay the price, better the devil you know?

Segregation, separated, annihilation,
Behold the junkie denial of consumption
To think that living is fighting against others
The words are said but spoke with fork tongue
Spoke with fork tongue

See the numbers rise to please
As quick as the germ of doubt

A superficial gang bang of liberalist economy
We’ll ride the ship then sink it down
Ride the ship then sink it down
Ride the ship and sink!

As the mob flounder, clutching at straws for hope
Ironically the mob are the straws, straws are weak
You question that or pay the price
Better the devil you know

You’re not for me, I’m here for me
Ride the ship, sink it down…
Ride the ship and sink it down!
