lyrics

UPMANSHIP DOWN
------------------------

My ambition: lead a generation
Out into the dark
Walk them to the abyss and shove them in the back

There’s a coven at the game
Pass-the-parcel played back-to-front
The winner comes up empty-handed

Under the padre sunshine
Wet with the promise
Of ideas

The only way to go
Upmanship down
The only way that’s left
Upmanship down

I forgot about the powerlessness
I create around me
Glowing inert gases, pixelation

Zip-jacketed, a spirit skin
There’s wisdom sewn into its pockets
It costs more than you’ll make in four years

Under the padre sunshine
Wet with the promise
Of ideas

The only way to go
Upmanship down
The only way that’s left
Upmanship down

I’ve read the penal code, I’ve seen it
A guarantee of amnesty in
Twelve-oh-two-two
I know my rights

Renounce everything
Twelve-oh-two-two
