lyrics

Thought "Better the devil"
Forever a settler
ever regretting not betting for better.
Forever indebted
and shuffling tethered
and shovelling shit, trying to get it together.

But whatever.
Never did want to be
one of the herd, you heard me.
Whatever.
Never did want to be one of the herd.
The worm will turn

Stripped of the passion,
the pattern got cyclical.
Trapped by the rational,
slapped with a typical
schtick and a carrot,
with cash as the catalyst,
sat in the saddle and
cracking the cattle whip.

Whatever.
Never did want to be
one of the herd, you heard me.
Whatever .
never did want to be
one of the herd.
The worm will turn.

And the bland are leading the bland,
all heeding to safety
and all reaching their hands out for you.
Caught up in the chain gang
and bound by throat,
you're damned if you do now,
and damned if you don't.
A chip off the block at the top of the field,
the cock of the walk is a cog in the wheel.

Oh what have you done?
It’s becoming so cumbersome
dumbing it down just to
drum up the numbers.
Sucking the fun,
but you're getting number,
just rum-pa-pa-pa-pummeling run after run
and you're bored of the walls,
and you're bored of the floor,
and you're bored of the wolf always clawing your door.
Bored of the formula, bored of conformity ,
good Lord, I'm bored of applauding the ordinary.
