Measured Etiquette

Lay me down before a misguided master race
Scratch my skin with the grit of your churlish face
Medicate and simplify my mind inside
Complications cut, curtailed and justified

Break a blister
Break my blister
Tell my sister nothing
But that I’ll miss her
Break a blister
Break my blister
Tell my sister nothing
But that I’ll miss her

Hold me prostrate
Whilst your lady leader lactates
In the mouths of
Your unelected candidates
Coerced into your
Unrehearsed mandate
Measured etiquette
Measured etiquette

Medication
Medication
Fast their break
Feed your unruly nation
Medication
Medication
Fast their break
Feed your unruly nation

Mind aligned with your nadir reason
Citizens with their flesh cleansed of treasons
Sterile sparks maligned by lust crushing capsules
Double dosed their ardour belying thrills

Their hands belie
But their hands belie
Their cries inside
Their hands belie
Their hands belie
Their cries inside

Whilst your lady leader lactates
Hold me prostrate
Unelected candidates
In the mouths of your
Unrehearsed mandate
Coerced into your
Measured etiquette
Measured etiquette

Medication
Medication
Feed your unruly nation
Fast their break
Medication
Medication
Unruly nation
Fast their break
