Writing On The Wall – 3 verses


I’ve seen the writing on the wall, a message for the tribe.
Posted proud for all to see, hidden in plain sight.
I’ve seen the programmes on TV, subliminal blitz-vision,
sub-subconscious, mind-manipulating, hypnotism.

The inmates are running the asylum, take a good look at what they’ve done.
Bureaucrats and jobsworth clerks. All hail our oligarchs!

When education is dumbed-down, then the writing’s on the wall.
Playin’-in-the-playground’s not allowed, then the writing’s on the wall.
When schools indoctrinate kids, then the writing’s on the wall.
and their parents acquiesce, then the writing’s on the wall.

Muzzled mouths can’t speak the truth, laws forbid dissent.
You’ve got no time and no excuse: doing nothing is consent.
Every citizen is guilty of all the good they did not do!
Remember this, when the time comes and your God’s judging you.

The inmates are running the asylum, psychopathic every one:
Presidents, ministers and monarchs. All hail our oligarchs!

When religions maim and kill, then the writing’s on the wall.
Where free men have no free will, then the writing’s on the wall.
When Governments serve the rich, then the writing’s on the wall.
When the fourth estate endorse this, the writing’s on the wall.

Bound by religion’s links and chains, debt’s bonds signed for in blood.
Tethers and shackles of the State, wrapped around you “for your own good”.
24/7 “Entertainment”. Making sure you don’t “misbehave”.
Every soul who think’s they’re free is the best of slaves.

Destined to fail by design. They can’t control their Frankenstein.
Throw the riff-raff to the sharks. All hail our oligarchs!

When currencies are debased, then the writing’s on the wall.
When wars for peace are embraced, then the writing’s on the wall.
When politicians prevaricate, then the writing’s on the wall.
Well welcome to a fascist State ‘cos the writing’s on the wall!

When people are afraid to talk, then the writing’s on the wall.
When laws forbid protesting shouts, then the writing’s on the wall.
When religions kill and maim, then the writing’s on the wall.
When the innocent take the blame, then the writing’s on the wall.
There’s a law for and a law against then the writing’s on the wall.
When truth seekers are conspiracy theorists then the writing’s on the wall.
When dissenting voices are outlawed then the writing’s on the wall.
When hatecrime is critical thought then the writing’s on the wall.
When patriots are traitors then the writing’s on the wall.
When songs and literature are banned then the writing’s on the wall.

It’s too late to repent.
Portents of ill-intent, it’s too late to prevent.
Clues and signs in evil marks. Nothing matters but their bloodline.
Clues and signs in evil marks. Our leaders have no hearts.
Got their-best interests at heart. All hail our oligarchs!
Clues and signs and evil marks. All hail our oligarchs!
Clues and codes in evil signs. They can’t control their Frankenstein.
Bureaucrats and hierarchs. All hail our oligarchs!
