and so you say to yourself, it is a life 
all the same only less those optional 
accessories considered as free, that 
is if you’d paid the joining fee 

but it is an occasion - at this moment 
countenance is asleep, you can play 
aims V ideas without acrimony frying  
ideology; yeah Mate - it’s your shout!  

get orf me back you’ll say, I’m not th’ 
bastard guilty of selling our scheme 
down the creek - hard as it seems I 
agree with being a lesser evil; read 

the script, we’re supposed t’ be free 
agents representing the same thing - 
th’ small print’s keeping our lawyers 
engaged defending that ‘freedom’
