Woman unconscious alongside drugs and drink --- Image by © 145/Andrew Bret Wallis/Ocean/Corbis

So now the thrill is gone
Doped up, drugged up with death on the horizon; destination the twilight zone
Piss poor, broke, and hopeless
So in love with misery;
Unscrupulous acts is what she commits
Pacifying tactics while telling her people to relax
Naive to her monumental collapse
Her children running amok remaining destitute
Exhausted, overused, and exploited like an old prostitute
Covert affairs with her neighbors and all
Bearing false witnesses and specializes in the downfall
Of them while they look in dismay
Imperialism is on the rise; who is the next to fall prey?
Conform or die can be a daunting task
Layers and layers are being removed to reveal who is behind the mask
