lyrics

time was interrupted and detained at random
the signs lie transparent in a senseless pattern
like a memory long suppressed
or a con who won’t confess
to compassion

they speak though every word has soon corroded
retreat into a certainty kept locked and loaded
finish raking through the muck
find the truth’s been sewn shut
or misquoted

under quarantine
where the future’s been
under quarantine
where the future’s been

control never was an exact pseudoscience
patrol the perimeter with ruthless guidance
make a fool of either choice
til the last receptive voice
has fallen silent

no possibility
but face eternity

under quarantine
where the future’s been
under quarantine
where the future’s been
