lyrics

Don’t say much, I’m willing to let the past talk
I’m a big fish in a glass box
Everything vivid, with the mask off
I’m flipping switches, I’m ready to blast off

The past talks but we don’t ever listen
Always too distracted just to pay attention
But I notice patterns, observe the rings of Saturn
All your dreams shattered, beaten, torn and tattered
You need to marinate, while I serenade
Blow the horns, crack the walls, bring down the barricade
Squeeze the stand like some lemonade
Repave the promenade, feed us aspartame, it’s Diet Cocaine
Then came the ready rock, changed the whole game
Panthers got the cane, wiped them off the stage
Turned the Hippies into druggies, countercultures came
And went

Don’t say much, I’m willing to let the past talk
I’m a big fish in a glass box
Everything vivid, with the mask off
I’m flipping switches, I’m ready to blast off…

We think we have freedom when we don’t have shit
Throw us in the prisons, shareholders profit
A legal slave trade, capitalistic system
A free work force bows to every bidding
Here’s a bushel and a sack, yeah my rent’s due
With a little interest cause I’m late, too
Funny what you do when you have the power
Running for the fence come the eleventh hour
Burn the fields down watch their money turn to ashes
No resources, stock market crashes
Pirates on the scene, take the booty and the cream
Take the booties, make them scream
Take the village and their dreams

Don’t say much, I’m willing to let the past talk
I’m a big fish in a glass box
Everything vivid, with the mask off
I’m flipping switches, I’m ready to blast off...
