The Tyranny of Broken Toys

The Tyranny of Broken Toys
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

It comes down to territory
Walking wounded through the purgatory
Lines crossed too late
Lines drawn too soon
Boots on the razor’s edge
Casualties of the dunes

They’ll overthrow everything
Invade all they want
Advancing to take it
And take it
No matter what’s lost
The jungle of static
The river of noise
Behind the marchland there lies
The tyranny of broken toys

Armor clad stipulations
Trumpeting accusations
Crimes of the trenches
Crimes of the years
Wallflower legions
Kaleidoscope fears

They’ll overthrow everything
Invade all they want
Advancing to take it
And take it
Never counting the cost
The jungle of static
The river of noise
Behind the marchland there lies
The tyranny of broken toys

Martyred tacticians
Waging wars of attrition
Games of the marionettes
Games of pack
Anonymous ciphers
Clandestine attacks

Oh, and once you engage them
You’ll never cut free
The strings and the blindfolds
Of their liberty

They’ll overthrow everything
Invade all they want
Advancing to take it
And take it
Never counting the cost
The jungle of static
The river of noise
Over the marchland there comes
The tyranny of broken toys
