lyrics

UNFAITHFUL ARMS

Faith, hope and larceny.
Bend down on one knee.
Not your wife, she’s compensation for an empty life.

Helpless seduction.
Sanction of the victim.
Wear a mask for long enough, forget who is underneath.

Carpet of gold or carpet bombs.
Embrace the most unfaithful arms.
All we need is a plausible face saying: “yours is no disgrace.”

Is it a Faustian bargain - growing your profit margin -
as cubicles make daily graves of thousands?

Small pranks for big banks.
Strange bedfellows always give thanks.
When think tanks think, think tanks think: “tanks.”

With her greasy palms and factory farms,
embrace the most unfaithful arms.
Even as blood runs down on that face,
we long for her embrace.
