2.1052 : 3/20/08 : Status Quo (Seventyseven: 57 of 81)

Uphold this empire by the status quo
but you’ll need something special to win this war
but the world just needs to be left alone
I know what’s within, I know what it’s for
keep it all upright covered in laws
and we just all become poorer
We keep ourselves armed right up to the teeth
the confusion grows ever more
So many the brightest and the best
Pretty soon it all gets strange
the finer, more grand this edifice of law
the more you’ve got robbers and thieves on the range
transformation proceeds when I hole up tight
You all get into your regular groove
I stay aloof and you all get rich
sweet simplicity: I’m sure you’ll all approve
