lyrics

Exempt

i was waiting for the hammer
each of us seemed like a nail
still i felt it couldn’t catch me
how could this privilege fail

nothing bad could ever happen
to the scions of the lords
we would just debate the issues
not for us those waterboards

like a fool who loves illusion
spinning in some fantasy
all the dangers i’m aware of
no way they would impact me

every day i read the latest
seems like we might all go down
but surely god will keep his eye out
i would never burn or drown

it’s a kind of expectation
somehow i will always float
it’s a kind of psychic castle
still protected by what moat

chorus

now i see the darkness coming
i still feel like i’m exempt
but you should never doubt the demons
or the gods of future tempt

like a fool who loves illusion
spinning in some fantasy
all the dangers i’m aware of
no way they would impact me
