The Shell Corporation – Bread & Circuses lyrics

The situation’s out of hand
Disinformation spreads across the land
Distracted clamoring masses
Demanding bread and circuses
And eating right out of their hands

Look out! Cause the coast is never clear.
And the air is thick with fear
And the end is drawing near when we get bread and circuses

Look out! Don’t believe everything you hear
Because the truth is never clear
And the consequences dear when we get
Bread and circuses

The situation’s round the bend
When who’s fucking who leads at ten
While we fight the culture wars
Our future is out the back door
We deserve everything we get

Torture wiretaps oil wars and dirty tricks
Our grandchildren’s future pawned off for another quick fix
And the brave new media is unafraid to sell the truth
About Britney, Lyndsay, Charlie, Idol, Jersey, Jessie Barnum and Bailey!
