World War 3 is on, no one knows it
first one who says so — that’s the one who blows it
satellite view on, nobody close it
eleven o’clock news, someone re-told it

World War 3 is on—pretend you don’t know it
secure your smart phone, don’t even show it
you got a real name? time to get an alias
sorry, too late, you just experienced digital failure

Microwave towers regularly miss me
check back in an hour, that’s not my history
I got a life but it’s off the grid
now, no one knows, who I am, what I did

World War Three is on
whose pretending they don’t know it!
persistent image of what was said
gloss lightly over the uninterred dead
take a moment and shake just one hand
that’s all you need to understand
