Cry Crisis! - Hogeye Bill

A shrill cry of crisis keeps the people cowered down
Dissent is trampled down, uniformity abounds
March them through the grinder, meat measured by the pound
Cry "crisis" and their minds will turn to stone
Rob them blind and they won't even moan
Turn them into murderers for psychopathic power plays
Scared subjects tend to do what you demand
Their cringing scruples buried in the sand.

Money crisis drug crisis terrorists abound
Climate crisis labor crisis crisis all around
Internet sex stalkers behind every virtual tree
Hitlers plotting 'gainst the world with WMDs
Immigration crisis, and a crisis of the mind
Crisis in Moldavia, crisis all the time
Witches in the day care centers buggering your kid
Crises that your former rulers did
The current crisis blowing off the lid.
Whip them to a frenzy, make them paranoid and freaked
Make them fear the shadows, make the future black and bleak
If terrorists don't get you then you'll die from global heat
Apocalyptic bunkum reel and rhyme
Is enough to dupe dumb masses every time
Wind them up to kill the foreign monkeys in the way
They fight for freedom from their fear inside
They kill to numb the coward that they hide.

Mortgage crisis oil crisis terrorists abound
Moral crisis debt crisis crisis all around
Spic gangsters, coke-crazed niggers, bullys in the park
Muslem beards with poison gas, rapists in the dark
Education crisis, and a crisis of the mind
Crisis in the Middle East, crisis all the time
The preacher in your local church is buggering your kid
Crises that your former rulers did
The current crisis blowing off the lid.
And rulers ride to rescue us, they're here to save the day
The price is life and liberty - serfdom's bond to pay
While rulers pick their teeth with bones of those whose flesh they ate
Spit dripping on the slave that holds his bread
Scared shitless of the spooks inside his head
His brother cooked by ruler-gods he can't adore enough
They live on all the fear that they create
That's the fundamental nature of the State.
