Channels - To The New Mandarins lyrics

It's tricky to relax when bracing for impact,
call it your patriot act.
The panic room's in back with victory on tap,
show them your patriot act.

New mandarins, your color-coded bulletins are doing my poor head in.
While you place bets on what I'm most dreading.
So well-informed,
I don't know where the truth begins.
I grew up on science fiction.
That doesn't mean I want to live in it.

O mandarins, new mandarins!

Pranking the homeland hotline.
Threat level: yellow sunshine.
Come on in, the fear is fine.
Mergers and acquisitions,
and murders and executions.
Your worst suspicion can be proven.

Asleep on pins between the spins and counter-spins.
The fix is in like it has never ever, ever been.
We pin merit badges on these Machiavellians.
Their future hell is History 101,
but no one is telling.

Pranking the homeland hotline.
Threat level: yellow sunshine.
Come on in, the fear is fine.
Mergers and acquisitions,
and murders and executions.
Hail the prophets of confusion.

It's tricky to relax when bracing for impact,
call it your patriot act.
The panic room's in back with victory on tap,
but just you watch your ass,
show them your patriot act.

Wrap yourself up in plastic and wait for the next disaster.
You've got to hand it to the bastards.
