Wax will melt

He said: “Unless the center holds
the levees will be broken
bile will rise from guilty pasts
and nothing will be token”

Compos mentis noone would have thought
you could rely
on the biggest lie and
never get caught,
never get caught

Born slippery, you can close the cracks
by truthing the lies and lying the truth
and calling the rest fake news

I’m troubled by the birds
because they saw Holodomor
I’m troubled by the birds
because they sang in Sobibor

Some men were taught to hate
by men who were hated
that’s why they do the hurtings
the hurtings

Power, real power, makes a fool look tall
debonair is back on air, but it will slow to crawl
Wax will melt, feathers will fall
And when the engines stop,
your monkey will drop

Some men were taught to hate
by men who were hated
that’s why they do the hurtings
the hurtings

Solo

That guy I met by the IJ
the night the going got tough
taught me to see
taught me to heal
taught me to love

You water down the truth,
sell us its derivatives,
then sell us water too.
And when we get too poor to pay
you make us go away.

Wax will melt, feathers will fall
And when the engines stop,
your monkey will drop.
