lyrics

I can’t remember last time I thanked you,
For letting me lecture you on loyalty
Too close for comfort just ain’t close enough
For this smug white fuck and his musical comfort food

Cause music is comfort food in this industry

And I love you tender, but we must walk away,
These mountains of cheques won’t cash themselves
And if it were different - did you know it ain’t?
Well you don't have a choice, either way

:: You call me loyal, though you know it’s rude to call me names
:: I know you’re loyal, but only when it’s for sports games
:: Call me loyal, injecting loyal in our veins
:: And we are loyal, to keep them happy

Keep it that way, girl

Out in the battle, flung far and used.
And purchased for all New Zealand to shop to
Sometimes when all of your hopes, and all of your dreams,
Are sold off as cheap souvenirs, like your country

And all of us anxious, but why hurry love?
Feelings can be bought and sold
Oh and why are you waiting - waiting for what?, The
propaganda machine is here

:: You call me loyal, you’re the loyal gears and I'm the lube
:: I know you’re loyal, you’re feeding loyal down our tubes
:: Call me loyal, even if it isn’t true
:: And we are loyal, to keep them happy

:: You call me loyal, you call me loyal to the hive
:: I know you’re loyal, you’re dishing out the loyal bribes
:: Call me loyal, like the Crown was to the tribes
:: And we are loyal, cause they keep us that way.

:: You call me loyal, though I’m not proud to be ashamed
:: I know you’re loyal, like how the Nazis shifted blame
:: Call me loyal, you call me loyal like a dog
:: And we are loyal, cause they keep us, that way.

Keep us that way,
Keep us that way in election year.
