lyrics

Clowns in fine suits, neither shrewd nor astute, expressing faux dissatisfaction
They don’t shoot blanks, they shoot flags that say bang; it’s all trickery - no actual action

Drawn to the spotlight like bears to a beehive
They’ll gladly be stung for some of the honey inside

In the blink of an eye, the ink is all dry
And the history’s now undeniable
A suit and a tie are no armour from ire
Still human, still fickle, still fallible
These modern day gods, they’ll smile and they’ll nod
But the cogs will rarely be turning
A roll of the dice deciding a life
But it’s fine, ‘cause it’s not there house burning down

The wordplay betrays a slapstick display where panic replaces the pratfall
Somebody’s puppets are our puppeteers, it’s been that way since time immemorial

Drawn to the spotlight like bears to a beehive
They’ll gladly be stung for that, mmm, sweet, sweet honey inside

Down it goes
Your hopes and your home up in smoke
As they laugh and they jape, ‘cause they can’t see the flames from their thrones
