“Don’t be a criminal in this police state,
you’d better shop, and eat, and procreate.
You’ve got vacation days, then you might escape,
to a condo on the coast.
I set my watch to the atomic clock,
I hear the crowd count down until the bomb gets dropped,
I always figured there’d be time enough,
I never let it get me down.
But, I can’t help it now,
looking for faces in the clouds,
I’ve got some friends I barely see.
But, we’re all planning to meet,
we’ll lay in bags as dead as leaves,
all together for eternity.”
