Lyrics
"No, Sir"
Why "No, Sir"? Why do you think you would not do it again?
Because they'd send me back to this place, Sir.
"Because they would send me back to this place, Sir."
A conditioned response indicating fear of reprisal.
There's no moral sense at work here at all.
.the least sign of inner change or development.
"Vulpes pilum mutat, non mores", as they say.
The leopard never changes his spots.
- Wolf, Sir.
- Did you speak, boy?
Sorry, Sir, but vulpes means wolf, Sir.
"Vulpes pilum mutat, non mores" means, literally...
...the wolf changes its fur but not its nature, Sir.

In 1605 he recoiled against the state. Packed explosives underground. Companions play out their roles like some game of chess, make diplomacy unsound.
The grails man desires he destroys through the greed in his head. The protestant King may go down, Trouble Maker was bred.

Friends, trouble may rise and trouble may ebb. Of makers and weavers of lies, carefully tread.
Trouble may rise, and trouble may ebb. Step back and envisage the whole game.

The shipwrecked East End economic underclass knew of his modus operandi.
His thrusting and cutting weapons put scars on faces
so they'd stand out in a crowd.
w____s talked too much for him.
Trades in desire he wanted dead.
This horse needs a cage not a stall,
Trouble Maker was bred.

Friends, trouble may rise and trouble may ebb. Amongst makers and weavers of lies we tread.
Trouble may rise, and trouble may ebb. Step back, envisage the whole game.

There's ways out. We've seen them. We've heard those whispers spoken (of) corners inside this maze where Trouble Makers wills lay broken

Friends, trouble may rise and trouble may ebb. Of makers and weavers of lies, carefully tread.
Trouble may rise, and trouble may ebb. Step back, envisage the whole game.
