Yeah. Yeah.
My eyes are driftin’ open. I feel the rope burn. Seven days and I’m still hopin’.
In this prison, vision’s swimmin’. Gotta try to focus.
Roll my body and my mind down lines ‘til I find an open window inside.
Fire in the hold, in my world; gotta zero in and quick-fast get my ass to the life-boat.

You can twist the riddle all the time. I wonder:
Why … would you ever want to be so?
Why … would you ever get to be so
Scared of life?

You won’t save me. Promises of mercy dissipate.
You can’t break me, when there’s nothing left inside but hate.
I pray that I'll make the dawn of a new day.
I pray that we'll meet again…

Yeah. Yeah.
Doorways blocked in order. What goes out’s re-dealt and sticks back on ya.
Action’s reaction’s enactment’s satisfaction for ya.
Roll my body and my mind ‘til I find there’s no escapin’ a crime on the militant right.
Beat down, burned out, don’t bother with shouting now ya mouth’s been neutralized.

Shift the borders and enslave the tribes. I wonder:
Why … do the psychos want to be the …
Why … do the psychos get to be the

Eyes set blind by avarice.
Cities enslaved by night by a concealed nemesis.
From the highest station, look down through the clouds at the shroud of a global lockdown.
Top… (top…) down…
Lock… (lock…) down…
