02. Mercenary

Anti-Meridian
by brave Saint Saturn



 

I was the future in 1995
I watched the flashbulbs burst whenever Iíd arrive
Iíd tape my knuckles up, cinched and tight for the ring
Just beneath the gloves, clenching white for the swing
I was a sellout before a sellout crowd
I threw the fight in my head, before the fat lady bowed
You want a tip-off, some good advice for the brawl?
Just wear a mouth-guard, to keep your teeth when you fall
And when you quit
Make sure that you can wash your hands of it

Chorus:
Armed to the teeth, score one for treachery
I am a mercenary
Thereís more lies here than we can all bury
I am a mercenary

Iíve seen the headlines swarming thick with flies
Iíve seen the Billboard charts, Iíve heard them spitting lies
Hereís to your lame award, your phony Nobel Prize
Hereís to the suckers lining up to see us compromise
Letís light a campfire, weíll have a singalong
Iíll burn some bridges, youíll bring the crappy songs
And when you quit
Make sure that you can wash your hands of it

Chorus

Bridge:
Thereís a part of me Iíve compromised
Buried somewhere under ghosts of lies
Make it quick, make it sick
Turn the crank and just play the greatest hits
Sigh
Thereís a part of me that I despise
Pull the curtain back and see what dies
Emerald spires of the near profound
Letís burn this lousy city down
