At The Mercy Of Imbeciles

Lyrics | Track Details

What you do is what you are / And wishing upon distant stars
/ Won't improve the hole you're in / Won't absolve your
deepest sin

But action is no gift from some covert and lofty god / It's
dependant and weighty all the same / And it is oh so easy just
to keep to yourself / But then you're at the mercy of imbeciles

Now I didn't make up the rules / But clearly we are led by fools
/ It is wise to know their ways / So you know how not
to behave

But sometimes we find ourselves in desperate need / and we
look to those with privilege and power / It's then we learn
compassion sits inert on their shelves / We're at the mercy of imbeciles

NO Action is no gift from some masked spirit in the sky / It's
reducible to flesh, mind, and bone / And it is oh so easy just to
keep to yourself

But then you're at the mercy of imbeciles

Imbeciles / Imbeciles / IMBECILES
