Bright Eyes – Clairaudients (Kill Or Be Killed) lyrics

Corporate or Colonial
The movement is unstoppable
Like the body of a centerfold it spreads
To the counter-culture copyright
Get your revolution at a lower price
Or make believe and throw the fight, play dead
It's exploding bags, aerosol cans
Southbound buses, Peter Pan
They left it up to us again
I thought you knew the drill
It's kill or be killed.

Future markets, Holy wars
Been tried ten thousand times before
If you think God is keeping score, Hooray!
For the freedom-fighting simulcast (victory! A defeat! Victory!)
The imminent and the aftermath
Draw another bloody bath and drain
Like the polar ice caps centrifuge (oh Allah! Oh Jesus Please!)
First snowman built at the end of June
He slicks his hair for the interview,
His fifteen-minute fame
Would you agree times have changed?
