Open the gate.. welcome to this dimension..
What's the reason?
for doing it?
for doing anything?
Out of pleasure?
Do you then find?..
yourself tied up in knots,
Entwined in your own ego?
bad, bad boy,
don't you understand that you must...
on the alter,
of Christs legend...
you'll never measure up...
so just give up...
Out of duty?
Have you found, or felt?
Knots in your stomach,
in the knowledge of the dishonour...
of the perpetually fraudulent propaganda?
Can't bring yourself to 'buy-in'?
to a 500 hundred year old legend...
of the goodness of the British Empire's upper class?
Who exploited all available people,
in creating their 'wealth'.
Through bloody-minded profit motives,
corrupted all cultures touched,
and excused it as 'civilising influences'.
But this is your 'duty'!
There's the rallying cry...
Ready? to step up to that 'idealist plate'?..
or do you try to 'Do' in...
In a non-violent principled stand?
And when you are spat in the face?
when you are confronted with...
Obscenity, do you digress, or protest?
Or, find yourself standing...
in the 'jack-booted' ranks...
of your consumerist society,
polluting the planet, and killing...
any 'pest' who steps in your path...
Still committed to a non-violent path?
Still measure up?
To your own principles?
Truth is the hardest of task-masters.
She calls you on your instincts,
and you might shy away...
He calls on your passion,
and you may lay dead in your emotion...
They call on your integrity,
and you may find you have none...
