Flogging a Dead Horse

Have, have you read the writing
on the boardroom wall?

You can forget about
flogging that dead horse
no, we're propping it up
pooling together
sharing the load
offering billions
make it rise from the dead

Like Christ on the third day
conveniently come back to aid with your purchase

Arm the angry young men
with machine guns
fill out that shopping list
give the have-nots a just cause
push the market rate up
make it ascend to the heavens

Like Christ after forty nights
make-believe just tastes so much sweeter

And let's do it all again
repeat from the start

Let's do it all again
repeat from the start


from What Comes After, released September 16, 2016
Written by Mathias Hatleskog Tjønn. Arranged by Mathias H. Tjønn and Hanne Hukkelberg, additional arr. by Martin Langlie
