Backdropped

Stuck in compliance cycle
Washing their hands of responsibility
Each of us rinsed and spun dry
Hung out in the safe breeze of economics
Our bodies secure we endure only to wait for the real danger
The real danger

We are backdropped
We are backdropped

An abuse more eternal than falling down your stairs
Worse than any injury you can imagine

It falls like night
Its invasion is slight
It renders you mute
It silences your thoughts
And holds us in equal utility

We are backdropped
We are backdropped

Dropped.

One day we will be dirty
And we will not be cleaned
We will not keep in line
Your places not kept
It will be your time to wash
Time to join us

We will not be backdropped
We will not be backdropped.
