lyrics

stare down the barrel of discussion.
deadly weapon, do you have the right to kill me at any time?
this obsession leaves me trembling
your law is easily summarized

seek and release the enemy
seek and seek and seek and seek and seek and release, you said.
"may they rest in peace."
back to the secret police for questioning.
   
seek and release the enemy
seek and seek and seek and seek and we have met him, and we are he.
too late to speak.
back to the scene of the justice that you bring.

meet me in your secret compartment where you dismiss
sanity as merely alarmist and try to feather your
nest with long-discredited arguments, take a breath to
analyze what you say, now does it really hold water in the latter day?
 
maybe you should try thinking of it in another kind of way

"a well regulated militia" stands
while more continue to fall
population bomb defused: happy day!
no reason to be appalled.

this all makes sense to someone whose head's densely diluted.
this all makes sense to someone whose world intruded on mine.

meet me in your secret compartment where you dismiss
sanity as merely alarmist and try to feather your
nest with long-discredited arguments, take a breath to
analyze what you say, now does it really hold water in the latter day?

maybe you should try thinking of it in another kind of way
