Midst Of The Mayhem

 
It was real time in multiple layers
soothsayers, dragon slayers
working in teams to rip your dreams at the seams
but it seems you done come out clean
into the world that you had been declining
now you're shining as you're re-defining your place
in the midst of the mayhem
you don't believe in games, you just play 'em

It was half time, between the right and the righteous
you know the mighteous, the out-of-sighteous
working your way through the chinks in the armor
of the farmer, you're a real snake charmer
'cause your words, they float like birds not like turds
over herds of the sheep still asleep standing deep
in the midst of the mayhem
you don't believe in words, you just say 'em

Where? In the midst of the mayhem

Double time in a triple situation
frustration, no communication
between the parties doing battle
you know their prattle could be heard up in Seattle
'cause they're loud and proud to draw a crowd
it's unreal but that's the way they feel as they kneel
in the midst of the mayhem
they don't believe in prayers, they just pray 'em

Where? In the midst of the mayhem
