LYRICS
Vexation (Directed Toward Both the Aristocracy and the Kindred)

Cut the cable loose.  Sever ties.
I haven't felt this fucked since the last time I died
Day in and day out, just useless propaganda
Consider these words as the last memoranda

This world of tobacco, bureaucracy and sin
It's staining my mind and the state that I'm in
And I'm finished, I'm finished -- you're worth nothing to me
I need to feel something worth something to me

I hear you trying to talk sensibly
I'm not listening; believe me when I say:

Baby, whatever happens, don't ever tell me "we will be ok"
Baby, don't ever tell me "whatever happens, we will be ok"

Smiling upon the stump, reeking of negligence
The substance is lost beneath piles of statements
And push comes to shove, forcing my hand
These rat bastards think they've got bulletproof plans

Well, I've got a plan for myself
And I'm ready to go anytime, anywhere
I really don't care for your branches: judicial, executive
Legislate this -- I'll see you in hell

I hear you trying to talk sense to me
I'm not listening; believe me when I say:

Baby, whatever happens, don't ever tell me "we will be ok"
Baby, don't ever tell me "whatever happens, we will be ok"
