Status Quo Ante Bellum

lyrics

You can't get into it

Heifers scream at tanner's blade
A lining fit for kings we've made
Belching black and trading states
At last, machines providing shade

So turn the key and make it last
Cranking over, speeding past
Far horizon's lure and trap
Always further, iron eyes cast

You can't get into it

So build it higher, stronger, wider
But only if your conscience finds her
Near your naked, burning tire
Smoking hot enough to blind her

But put your feet down on the ground
A trodden rhythm, easily found
And with your bones I bet you'll pound
The same as ancients would as now

And you can't get into it
