lyrics

the piece in the paper caused a panic
the sheiks and the mages automatic
action to heat consists of static
here comes the sun to scorch our envious sons

the sheiks and the mages caused a panic
by bleeding the public interest
seize the moment when they say
that you need to believe the heaviness of the seas

so we sail
with a minx and a sheet towards the whale
but the sticks in the butter and the cannons in the ground
raids on the admirals are never to be found

the sheiks and the mages caused a panic
by bleeding the public interest
seize the moment when they say
that you need to believe the heaviness of the seas

and we bleed
for the many people and their needs
i don’t blame the indispensability we found
how can it be wrong to desire all the sounds
its how

the sheiks and the mages caused a panic
by bleeding the public interest
seize the moment when they say
that you need to believe the heaviness of the trees

so we wronged
we were wronged by the rights all along
i don’t blame the leaning or the cynical alarms
if you are empowered you have the right to harm
it’s on

but it’s all the same all the same
through the history and pages
all the same all the same
it’s inevitably in vain
it’s the change there’s no change
flip through systematic wages
but it’s insane it’s so insane
to be living anyway

write a letter with a b
and we’ll end it with an l or an e
and you see the letter with the same old song
what’s the only reason to swim along

well i don’t know and the people haven’t known and the president has shown that annihilation goes where nobody knows
but it’s all the same it’s all the same
through the history and pages
all the same all the same
it’s inevitably in vain
it’s the change there’s no change
flip through the mauls and the wages
but it’s insane it’s so insane
to be living anyway
