We can tell from the look on your face that the noise isn’t what was expected

It’s quite clear from your quivering voice

That when you signed up for the cause you were hoping to become infected

But the bone meal stayed intact

It’s a long way to the ground from up here we can see through the backs of your skulls.

We can be what you want us to be, as long as you pay for the lip-gloss

I can be frank or painfully vague

What you need is a servant, a slave, and a puppet to dribble your chocolate

We dribble nothing but phlegm

There’s no-one paving the way, let the fanfare drown out.

After all, what can these men expect? Let’s let the apes roam.

In a cruel twist of fate all the lights have gone out and all hope is extinguished

You’re left just clutching at thin air

We weren’t surprised to discover your plans for an instant replacement

You could see that one coming for miles

This won’t be instigated

Until our backs have healed

And blades are sheathed and treated.
