    and so the next day will deliver
    as if your victory was forgotten
    and so the next day will deliver
    the same issues you had fought on

    because superficial victory
    is hollow and meaningless
    because superficial victory
    was Aristotle's nemesis

    that Sun Tzu taught us well
    a classic through and through
    Sun Tzu had taught us well
    as to what we all should do

    but did we learn it all
    was there something that we missed
    but did we learn at all
    when we failed to fully invest

    just skimming the pages of time
    never taking history's doses
    just skimming the pages of crime
    in a superficial hypnosis

    seeing only what we care to see
    too busy winning victories
    seeing only what we care to be
    too busy making enemies


    just bumper-sticker, T-shirt logic
    and corporate, sound bite consumption
    just bumper-sticker, T-shirt logic
    the winds of social disfunction

    rigid ideology and
    partisan insulation
    bear children to a conflict age
    cram children in the conflict nation

    old and young and child alike
    lost forever to the human condition
    and old and young and children alike
    bent on revenge and superstition

    you've won your little victory
    had your say and all that matters
    you've won your little victory
    that's why the crowds all scattered

    you think we've lost the fight
    but fail to see that we're not fighting
    you think we've lost the fight
    and fail to see our minds uniting

    there's no right and wrong
    only dead and alive
    there's no right and wrong
    only war and peace

    and there's plenty in between
    your black and white
    there's plenty in between
    the arguments you fight

    because logic is a friend and a tool
    and more than a club and kind of a school
    and logic is a friend and a tool
    of the close-minded fool, who loses his cool

    and superficial victory
    reveals what you can't confess
    because superficial victory
    is hollow and meaningless

    meaningless to most
    while the technicians won't disagree
    still meaningless to most
    because logic can't hide reality


    and one day we'll do the work
    we'll study the ancient tomes
    one day we'll do the work
    and learn it in our own homes

    we'll invite the possibility
    and open our minds and see what we see
    we'll invite the possibility
    **** Sun Tzu, and finally see free

    :p
