Apathy, Anxiety, Hostility

There’s a poppy in Afghanistan
Feeding opium to the true believer
There’s an amputee in Vietnam
Saying ‘ Mine, Mine, Mine, Mine, Mine’
There’s a baby in Jerusalem
With a Star of David tattooed on her head
There’s a cashed up Kashmir rebel
Saying “leave us alone, leave us alone”

And I’m watching it on the TV
And it makes me wonder why
Must be something in the water
Or maybe just a way of life

Apathy, Anxiety, Hostility
Apathy, Anxiety, Hostility

See the clowns in a big White House
With the smell of oil oozing from his skin
See a robot in a tank in a desert
Calling ‘Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire’
See a family in a home made shelter
Watching the sky, fear in their eyes
And a broadcast news corporation
Turning it all into entertainment

It’s blazing on the TV
But I’m neither low nor high
I just keep drinking that water
And I keep wondering why

Apathy, Anxiety, Hostility
Apathy, Anxiety, Hostility

Everywhere you go

Track Name: Deceit and Lies
Deceit and Lies

Your best laid plans are floating in the ocean
Your hopes and dreams a’ waiting to be heard
You sit around and sense a lack of meaning

Your next door neighbour got that promotion
Your little brother can’t find his way
You sit around and sense a lack of meaning

You want a chemical to get you out of here
You want to drive away your anger and your fear
You want a role to play that fits you down to size
But all they offer you is more deceit and lies

You’ve got your memories, a happy childhood
But now it seems so long ago
You sit around and sense a lack of meaning

You want a chemical to get you out of here
You want to drive away your anger and your fear
You want a role to play that fits you down to size
But all they offer you is more
Deceit and lies

Lie ie ie ie ie ie ies
Lie ie ie ie ies,
Lie ie ie ies

So take your chemical to get you out of here
And maybe drive away your anger and your fear
Then find a role to play that fits you down to size
But don’t you let them give you more
Deceit and lies
Deceit and lies
Deceit and lies
Deceit and lie ie ie ie ie ie ie ies

Lie ie ie ie ie ie ies,
Lie ie ie ie ie ie ies
Lie ie ie ie ie ie ies
Lie ie ie ie ies
Lies
