unbolt me

on the good ship meritocracy
it is agreed
the fashion is shark skin suits
the rest is mere commodity
it is decreed
“fish and gut ‘em, down the shute”

wanna compete and be somebody?
i do agree
i want me a shark skin suit
don’t wanna be a nobody
i do decree
fished and gutted, stripped of fluke

gotta get me legs and make plans
hooked on cash and false kisses
anything but an anchor of conscience
tossed overboard to sleep with the fishes

on the good ship meritocracy
we all agree
gotta wear us some shark skin suits
everything’s a commodity
and market decrees
fished and gutted, eat clam soup

gotta get me legs for my plans
hooked on cash and false kisses
anything but an anchor of conscience
tossed overboard to sleep with the fishes

the whale is dead
long live the whale!
see how he vomits me…
