Tearing Down The Old School

the sun is rising in the west
ships sailing off a flat earth
the moon the size of jupiter for what it's worth 
all the worse becoming all the best
everybody is subject to the test


the king becomes the jester
the jester becomes the king
that fat lady can no longer sing
and the jury has been sequestered 
there judging you by your ancestors 


they’ll come back with a decision
while the accused await their fate
you stand there with nothing else to contemplate 
except to spend your life in prison
or to have surgery to correct your vision 


you wish you could return to times before 
when everything was a little more formal 
you wanna return to a state of normal 
but normal isn’t normal anymore 
it got thrown out of the back door


the sage has suddenly become the fool
out with the old and in with the new 
doesn’t seem like there’s much you can do 
chaos has suddenly become the rule
their tearing down the old school
