lyrics

The way the scales are sliding, I'm not getting fixed this year.
So I hold on to my spat upon views, and look around for some truth to appear.

Leave the father figures way behind - daddy figurines doused in wine -
to go running with the cranes of Jersey
late for morning assembly

to greet their queen
in long, lead lines
Lady Liberty sieging Heil

Babylon gets in my eyes

Beat me up against a scaffolding, hit me up when you're done remorsing.

When you do I'll hear you calling me on Radio Codependency

for roleplay beneath Venetian blinds
ID? So long, big dreams of mine... Babylon gets in my eyes!

Who, baby who is your president?
