The Hollowed Children

 
Due to the silent war we're winning †
The world continues in its spinning   †
The world continues in its spinning † †
The world continues in its spinning † †
† †  
Due to the silent war we're waging † †
the ends always justify the means † †  
Simple cogs engaging † †
†††† complex machines † †
is what you are † †
†† † In service to † †
your country † †
†† † Thanks you † †
for your heroic efforts † †
†† † We do † †
the dirty job † †
†† † No one wants † †  
to believe in what they don't want † †
to believe in † †
† †
You can leave when † †
your tour of duty is done † †
† †
Until then ... † †
† †
Son, †  
you've been drafted † †
in a war that can only be won † †
by a God gifted, Back-Halfted † †  
humming hollowed one † †  
such as yourself † †
† †  
so be a trooper and good boy † †
while we give you these shots- † †
† †  
tell us if you see the Dots † †
† †  
Hey! † †
† †  
Pay attention, † †
you little † †  
Shithead! † †
† †
