Standard Bearer

from by Lyle Christine



Holy hell without rest, all the dashing white guests
Dressing up to the nines, heady heights that we climb
Careful with the petard, hoisted over the guard
To this myth you devote, it was murder she wrote
Oh the daily bread, it’s a burden, how the upper crust treats the vermin
How to live your life as a human, trying to survive in the union
Clasping finger control, change of heart when you’re old
Led astray by your will, broken contract fulfilled
Pleasantries are exchanged, alibis are explained
Raided during the night, broadcast in black and white

The methods of those fools, dialectical rules
As the horror unfolds, breaking out of the mould
Tonight was a success, all the folks were impressed
With your balancing act, with your panic attack


from The Landed Gentry, released April 20, 2015
