Telephone

An Ode to Control and Order

History is just a game of telephone, you see

Deep pockets with armies at the head seat

Tell you what to remember and what to believe

What to forget and how you should perceive

History is just a game of telephone, you see

Who will rise to write the next scene?

Will they bring more of the same or much needed relief?

Will those who pray for justice finally receive?

History is a game of telephone, you see

Those who orchestrate it I do not envy

For each problem they solve, they create three

Because history is a game of telephone, you see?
