Track Name: I'm So in Love with the Surveillance State
your paranoia is a gift
stare down the camera in the lift
and your neighbours looking shifty
as you adjust the blinds
the microphones recording
every single whispered word
and the van with the blacked out windows
that parks outside at night, might know you heard

I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state

I saw the photos that you took
I heard your album, read your electronic book
every day I’m fascinated, got to take a look
within the treadmills of your mind
HMRC recording
every keystroke every click
and we’re closer than we’ve ever been now
the thought of life without it makes me sick

I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state

Your status is a calculated lie
people are vulnerable people are sly
if they work out how to incontrovertibly verify
you could be in a legal bind
stenotypist is recording
every statement you construct
now you’re looking at a long time inside
the data do not lie and you’re as guilty as fuck

I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state
Track Name: Rainbow Conniption
holy sopisism
carrier of the elder prism
kommandant in chief of the bizarre

terrific lenses
ignite the present tenses
languishing beneath the setting star

perennial memories
banished from ephemery
you thought that they were buried now you are

synaptic cascade
endocrine cavalcade
down-regulate these impulses too far

the concrete chasm
reenacting iconoclasm
relegates relinquished repertoire

holistic rental
pathologically sentimental
separate the artist from the tar
