I Abstain Lyrics

I abstain!

Summon my pride? What pride lies behind blinkered eyes?
Your vigilance is shit!
"The lads together" - you'll fall!
Smug complacency, notions of reserving the right to think with your fists.
I abstain from this mundane apathy.

Committed to "all for red, white and blue" in effect you're fighting
for what's really fighting you.
"Grit those teeth, push out those chests" tears only for the flag.
Always the brave patriot as you slip to second class.

But you stand steadyfast?

People are not subjects, why should the few get more respect?
Open your eyes!

Imperialism feeds off you, not patrons but patronized.
Open your eyes!

They're shaping you - you're trapped with "pomp and circumstance"
Lose your discretion.
Soon, you'll not fall from grace endorse their rhetoric you fade,
they prosper.
They're shaping you - you're trapped with "pomp and circumstance"
Lose your discretion.
Soon, you'll not fall from grace endorse their rhetoric you fade,
they prosper.

I abstain!
Don't be a colonial slave.
Don't substantiate the act.
