lyrics

[PART I]
this modern world of state control
its faith in progress increases instability abroad
the brutality of this reality, hey, it's fine as long as i don't have to wait
in line much longer for my fix
mmm salt it does the trick
-
in addition to revenge, or in place of it
theories of motivation must include desire and power
survival of the fittest is overruled
will you please excuse me while i beat my little head against the wall
trying to make sense of it all...
-
but but i've got a duty and a loyalty to a greater good
regardless of these ventriloquist politics
that only cultivate my inner angst
and don't forget and don't forget and don't forget your words:
onwards and upwards
(take it all with a grain of salt)

[PART 2]
uh oh.
see, my once gleeful disposition has seemed to decrease
in inverse proportions to my aging, aching years
and it's largely because something f*cking smells
it's that conservative suit soaked in crude
so just let me enjoy my last cigarette
and spare me the ignorance in your attitude
see it's not what i desire
you're awfully close to my fire and if you get burned
why should i be held accountable
for a problem that was preventable?
and now it all seems unsurmountable
and all you gotta say is
take it with a grain of salt - taking my daily salt
it's not - no, it's not my fault- overdosing and self diagnosing all this salt
