Ambient Temperature Tantrum

from The Return of Agency by Dan Connor



I'm sitting on and my hands and my thumbs, blood pouring out of all of my gums 'cause I bite off more than I can chew when I keep a heart that's true.
It's not easy to live sincere when there's so much pressure (so much pressure).
It's not possible to be at peace when there's so much power (power to the people).

One heart (I'm alone)
Two hearts (to combat apathy)
Four hearts (we can put it to a vote)
Eight hearts (we can call for backup)
Sixteen hearts (we can hold the line)

Wall Street ransom at point-blank range.
LAPD, baby, you can clear my name.
These are middle class, lower class, upper class problems.
Lock and load - together we can solve them.
I don't typically work with a loaded gun but the courts don't work so come get some.
Infiltrate the parties. Leak their dirty laundry.
We don't have to hack them, they just let us in.
With an insider's help they don't know where we've been.
I don't believe that the voters are corrupt, they're just dumb, stupid people who can't get a bit of luck.
People just do what they're told.
Let's make another way. Let's make another mould.
It's time for grit and balls and sweat.
It's time for grit and balls and sweat.
