lyrics

I wake up in the mooring with my eyes half close
Bake up in the morning with jay half smoked
I kiss the Kalashnikov goodbye then I go
I step out side to a sky full of drones

The sun is beating down from behind the black haze
The air is getting warm and the sky is flat grey
I maneuver through the ruins where the rats race
Slip a mask on my face on the back of the train
I’m as high as the poison that the pigeons fly through
I wonder whats the difference in a pigeons eye view
See they don’t make decisions like you and I do
I see the pigeon take a shit on a suicide booth

Oh do your job and remember
to smile for the camera
You hit the nail on the hammer
smile for the camera
You have to choose what to do
What do you have to lose
Mind Your P’s, watch your grammar
Smile for the camera

Broken back tenements
Sky scrape skeletons
that’s the devil’s residence
That’s where the devil lives
Broken bottle symphony
Gas rag poporri
Try to keep the focus please
Pandoras opening
Murder birds flock in the sky without a sound
They lock it and they load it then they drop it on the ground
but the nails about to move before the hammer hits
Look up and the sky and smile for the camera big
Smile for the Camera big

Oh do your job and remember
to smile for the camera
You hit the nail on the hammer
smile for the camera
You have to choose what to do
What do you have to lose
Mind Your P’s, watch your grammar
Smile for the camera

Smile for the camera
Smile for the camera
