They want you to live in a cage
No channel to broadcast on
A troglodyte
A derelict barn
Campaign
Button

They want you in the wilderness
No area to pick up the signal
A troglodyte
A derelict barn
Campaign
Button

The filthy rich
to the beggar's ditch
God damn
This genes
Receiver
You've been denied
Human
Contact

The king eats another
mouthful of soil
You need a full stomach
To go and drill for oil

They want you lost in your own fear
No compass find your way out
A troglodyte
A derelict barn
Campaign
Button

The filthy rich
to the beggar's ditch
God damn
This genes

Receiver
You've been denied
Human
Contact

The King uses a file to sharpen his teeth
and smiles as long they keep pouring concrete

    General CommentThis was actually the title track of his 2005 EP released on Anvil records in the UK. That was the year of G.W. Bush's inauguration for his second term after a rather heated campaign and election against John Kerry. Being the American that I am, I associate this song with that ellection and assume that's what it's about, as G.W. Bush was the one who sucked England into the war on Iraq and subsequently cost Tony Blair his job. So... yeah, that's my take on this.
