head is pounding
must keep on driving
smell of diesel, earn a living
ulcerated, medicated
daily shopping
pushing paper
school for children, busy work training
plate of meat, then switch on the TV
vacant landscape
word of crackdown
leave the root and clip the branches
numb is good, numb is no problem

    General Commentthis song is terrifying, a great marriage of form and content. it's a pretty dismally one-sided view of modern culture, sure, but it's not entirely lacking for accuracy, either, even into the twenty-first century. "leave the root and clip the branches" is a great line: that and the opening sample (as well as the line "school for children, busywork training") put you in mind of "david after the dentist," the viral video of a child reeling in the backseat of his father's car after his first anesthetic experience at the dentist's office.
