Perfect World

from Govern Yourself Accordingly by Johan Ess



fascist men living in a perfect world
you cannot taste the sarcasm
it's a good time to pretend

living life aimlessly
give me a reason to get up
we will travel across the sea to the island of japan

i am trapped in a world inside a world i'll never see
you are trapped in a world inside a world you'll never see

i am more than just a little bit excited
can you not see my face melting?
turning into something else?

set the date, stand in line
make your protest, tap the line
and if it doesnt work for you
burning the building works just fine

basking in your holy glow
always probing your deepest thoughts
when is the last time we went out?
i dont know what i'm talking about

would you like to hear a synthetic pretty sound?

I am dead
Now I'm dead
