good God haven't I been here before?
it looks so familiar
past styles reverberate in new forms and
old echoes in new voices
vast and mysterious
but trite and predictable
we're nowhere near some cosmic end-game
though some of us wish we were
the new tyrant sounds no different
than the old style one
the reformer mirrors the tyrant's style
and still thinks it's for a greater purpose
good God the new liberation still enslaves
I've been here before watching the same bread and circus games
