An Idea Whose Time Is Done

Maybe it’s for certain, this attempt at honesty  
The latest case scenario is retrospectively amusing   
I don’t understand you, but I believe you   
til I hear it again,. and again  and again…. 

Line after line is lie after lie,
Lie until the facts say otherwise   
Disguised behind a Sunday smile 

and all the while orchestrated ignorance   
does the dance doomed to dust.. 

I pledge a grievance to the bad    
Don’t turn your back on what you might have had 

Strangled stories we’ve all been told    
twisted pasts have started to unroll 

and now we know it’s all controlled glory..
an idea whose time is done 

There were times in my life where i couldn’t tell the truth   
From the stories flying round with very little proof 

They speak of things great for us all    
Who ever us is     
get ready for a fall 

Different ways of saying the same thing   
that we're willing victims of circumstance. 

it’s the stank and vile words from the rank and file absurds   
Hold on    Get ready for the fall 

I pledge a grievance to the bad  
Don’t turn your back on what you might have had 

Strangled stories we’ve all been told    
twisted pasts have started to unroll 
and now we know it’s all controlled glory   
an idea whose time is done 

Strangled stories, twisted paths..   
Redefine glory, never hold it back   
Re find glory, never going back 

Fear leading action…     
Money from nothing…         
Fighting in the name of god…                        

Permitted free speech zones
Quantitative appeasing  
shock and awe    
Illicit complicity 
Accept it for what it is...     
Except that 

The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy..
So don't befriend me with that shit you're trying to feed me   
Selling the tale to lift up the heads of the needy  
But the cream rises up to the mouth of the greedy 

I pledge a grievance to the bad    
Don’t turn your back on what you might have had 
Strangled stories we’ve all been told     
twisted pasts have started to unroll 
and now we know it’s all controlled glory  
an idea whose time is done
