Paint It Black – Dead Precedents lyrics

Ignore history.
A charm school success story.
Top of the class in Slash & Burn Diplomacy.
Setting phasers to stun is no fun. So says the
Syllabus for Blitzkrieg 101.

So Johnny get your gun.
You singed your wings, flew too close to the
Sun. Too bad you never learned to turn tail
And run. That's where we'll come undone.

There's a thousand broken hearts on the home
Front, baby. That you're too nearsighted to
See. That's why you're falling off the charts
On the home front, baby. The mathematics of
Complicity.

We are falling apart.

That's as honest as I know how to be.
