lyrics

Torn structure observes the chromium in view. It covets the obscure reflections around it. Years of mending. Assets generate. Objects begin to oxidize. Dust gathers. Reflection becomes opaque. Collateralized wealth obligations. Privatized gain, socialized loss. Greed will self regulate. Objectivist Greenspan utopia. Experimental idealism gripped by power. Destructive moralism. Bankrupt, repressed, self alienated with guilt. Nobody rings the bell at the bottom. Reckless, unbalanced, fascinating man. Objectivism, slavery unleashed. Unlimited power, energy, wealth. Feedback cycle of it's own addiction. More is never enough. Recast oppression self serving triumph
