#QuemPensa é Spiralist: “Cog in the Wheel”

#QuemPensa é Spiralist: “Cog in the Wheel”

Lost the plot, jumped the shark, too late to repent


I’m a cog in the wheel

Greasing up the instruments of rape

Ask me nicely and I’ll kneel

We can get your massive load on tape

 

I’m a happy camper

It’s a blessing I make enough to get by

I’ll go out with a whimper

Let’s us have a casual detachable goodbye

 

I’m a rock-n’-rolla

Providing on-demand entertainment

Be my ayatollah

Fill me up with the blankest of statements

 

I’m a great provider

a stand-up citizen with wife and children

I’ll inspire neither

They’ll learn to surrender and let it kill them

 

I’m a willing victim

I spend my nights wondering what could have been

A terminal symptom

Drink up, there’s the beer gut, next a ruptured spleen

 

I’m a worn-out moron

Expectant for a cancer-fueled retirement

Followed every sermon

Lost the plot, jumped the shark, too late to repent

 

Maybe a nuclear war will blow

Maybe a miraculous godsend

          What a way to go
          What a way to end.
