Dear Panic

The screen says obey.

Stay Inside

Five o' clock curfew

News broadcast from the cage.

Alarms ring

Sing songs of Mayhem

Raise Hell

escape Jail

The warden lost the key

Pirate the airwaves

Slaves to wristwatch

Gold plated shackes

Diamond encrusted

Handcuffs

and chains

Secret police arrive at dawn

pawns on the chessboard

Secure the perimeters

All backup - respond.

Arms high

Hands in plain sight

jack boots

stomp the playground

Salute the new reich.
