Under His Eye

It’s like a mile taken from an inch

Tipped the shepherd who let you in

As Karma sings, “What goes around…”

Ashes, ashes…

Sympathize to victimize us

Wear disguises

Compromise our

Simple nature for your pleasure

“Integration,”

Clever, clever

Prophets, profits, sing your praises

Taint the Saints and curse the ages

Sleight of hand a swift distraction

Censor, censor all reaction

Wipe your prints from all the glasses

Make a plate to feed the masses

Headline reads “The Choice Was Ours”

Rob the Earth and run to Mars

It’s like a mile taken from an inch

Relocate but in the end

Don’t pretend it’s not an exit

You run from everything you’ve ever known

Reify to justify

Reify to justify

It’s like a mile taken from an inch
