lyrics

Plastic blankets is all they get
at least there’s no smallpox in it
Plastic blankets is all they get
at least there’s no smallpox in it

Or is it? Something even worse, triple digit heat to the brain exchanged for frigid
temperatures and there’s tempers for sure that are flarin Maclaren fast unaware then that speed kills and heat kills in equal proportions to seek ill treatment to meek millions in a birth of a nation to hold us back they reap then what they sow to those they perceive as weak then
Depending on which head of the serpent speak then
When crimson tides hit the blue deacon
I’m black steely Dan in the hour of chaos off the deep end
I leap in universe bound as I creep in
Though it has taken a long time
The rise and decline in a waveform sine
Canceling each other now that’s the paradigm
Shift into next gear and feel the seat recline
In inertia the burst of acceleration hurts the back of the neck like whiplash in reverse the
Stars will streak like warp speed the fleet
Jump into hyperspace force to feel like a g
Conceived by a madman to the highest degree
Hogwash at the highest levels, trickles down to you and me

Plastic blankets is all they get
at least there’s no smallpox in it
Plastic blankets is all they get
at least there’s no smallpox in it

Concrete cell floor chain link fence
Uniformed masked men sent by the president
Divide up the families call them dirty immigrants
Concocted calamity borderline belligerence
Actual aggression as they process them to settle in might as well gasoline bathe them, there’s precedence
Set before it, that’s definitely horrid
E deploribus enormitus instead of what’s at the core of this
E Pluribus Unum in this novus ordo seclorums just oxymoronic with a real moron atop of this strawberry shitcake on a hamburger hill
Ground up so they round up the “others” to kill
Or to function as a cog in a system meant to rob so they got you doing jobs just to slip you the bill


Plastic blankets is all they get
at least there’s no smallpox in it
Plastic blankets is all they get
at least there’s no smallpox in it
