Over There

watching over there
in the comfort of our illusions
taking sides in our protest and delusion
about our perceptions about life
watching over there
and making our arguments
a bunch of noise
to disguise our misguidance
do as we say
not as we do
say as we say
don’t say the truth
watching over there
while it builds here
when it comes apart at the seems
when it comes out
bringing us to our knees
over there
was here
over there
was already here
and in our noise
and distracted comfort
and protest and delusion
all the things we fought
were just an illusion
when the real gets real
and gives the brand new deal
an offer not to refuse
do as we say
not as we do
say as we say
but don’t tell the truth
