Western Addiction – A Poor Recipe For Civic Cohesion lyrics

If patience is virtuous
I got the temperament for temperance
Partitioning stems and seeds
Damn lifeless galleries
I'll implement the elements
You're soiling a sacrament
Slicing sharks and your porcelain pedestals
Somehow, it seems so pitiful

Of the highest order
Was likeness captured?
Feigned composure
A poor recipe for civic cohesion

We'll readily collaborate
Understand and participate
Pieces de resistance
Devastated crops of worth
Someone grant me social graces
Being that I'm socially graceless
Billowed soot have we met
Chromatic leaf, this is icy bayonet

I've been commissioned
To ignore companionship
Fashioning barricades
Amid flesh and wilderness

I'm wedlocked to these rivers and tides
These arrangements are my passionate wives
I'd pass you up for seductive seasons
A poor recipe for civic cohesion

Of the highest order
Was likeness captured?
Feigned composure
