Bloodless

Album: My Finest Work Yet (2019)
  • They're profiting from your worry
    They're selling blanks down at the DMZ
    They're banking on the sound and fury
    Makes you wonder what it all's got to do with me

    Bloodless for now

    I'm keeping mine with the altruists
    I'm putting my weight behind the dancer
    I know it's hard to be an optimist
    When you trust least the ones who claim to have the answers

    It's an uncivil war
    It's an uncivil war
    It's an uncivil war

    Bloodless for now

    And the poets they explode like bombs
    (Bloodless for now)
    The gentry is drinking Moet Chandon
    (Bloodless for now)

    Turn around and quote a well known psalm
    Don't you worry 'bout the wicked
    Don't you envy those who do wrong
    And your innocence will be like the dawn
    While the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun

    Well, the best lack all conviction
    And the worst keep sharpening their claws
    They're peddling in their dark fictions
    While what's left of us
    Well, we just hem and we haw

    And it feels like 1936
    In Catalonia
    In Catalonia

    Bloodless for now
    Bloodless for now

    And the poets they explode like bombs
    (Bloodless for now)
    Drinking Moet Chandon
    (Bloodless for now)

    Turn around and quote a well known psalm
    Don't you worry 'bout the wicked
    Don't you envy those who do wrong
    And your innocence will be like the dawn
    While the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sunWriter/s: Andrew Wegman Bird
