Subterfuge and Sabotage

You tell yourself it happened when you weren’t lookin’
you were shopping or openin’ cans and callin’ it cookin’
you were just not payin’ attention
you didn’t have any intention
of seeing everyone hit the skids
from the old folks down to the kids

and you ask yourself just how can this be
that nothing not even the water is free
and since when does field and stream
mean nothing but a magazine

Tellya what’s comin’ whether you want to hear it or not :
watch out for the meanings of words cause that’s all you got
you’ve swallowed the fraud of democracy
of the real sense of peace and the freedom to be
Community, Friendship and Charity
were words before Eve even saw that tree

and you ask yourself just how can this be
that nothing not even the water is free
and since when does field and stream
mean nothing but a magazine

They’ve whittled you down to a sound bite of barely a minute
you stay glued to the show even tho’ you know nothing’s in it
history ? that’s just bunk, right?
and the library’s full of junk, right ?
well they’ll round you up just like cattle
you’ll have spared them the need for a battle

and you’ll ask yourself how did this come to be
that nothing not even the water is free
and when did Field & Stream
become nothing but a magazine
