4. We’re All Suckers for Publicity

We are a masochistic bunch
For placing all our faith in just one side of the case
Maybe you didn’t notice
How funny this has molded our fate.
Our purpose became feeding
An endless pride-fueled war machine
Didn’t we forget it takes two to tango
In a misunderstood dispute between a father and his son
Only when this son became an exile
We also found in him a scapegoat for our crimes
And if all of these are mankind’s invention
Then we’ve just made the greatest puppet civilization.
We are a gullible bunch
For placing all our faith in just one side of the case
Maybe you didn’t notice
It’s all gritty showbiz.

Go. Moan. Scream. Tell me if you like it. Make some noise.
