1. No misery like happiness –
Hated for love.
Envy abounds at the love we’ve found;
Hawks preying on doves.

We build high our fences
To keep the enemy from breaking in;
From breaching our barbed defences,
Keeping unclean out and chosen in.

What’s mine is yours, is ours.
What’s yours, is mine, it’s ours.

2. No misery like happiness
Got the best, fear the worst.
But to live inside a bubble and hide
Is to fear it will burst.

There’s no respect for piety,
No respect for righteousness.
In a loveless society
What is cursed is what is blessed.

What’s mine is yours, is ours.
What’s yours, is mine, it’s ours:
Keep away.

But you can’t trust the jealous
To fight fair in love or war,
To forge alliances to quell us
Organic shrapnel, upright whores.

What’s mine is yours, is ours
Keep away.

No misery like happiness
No hatred quite like love.
As we look askance ,across our vulnerable flanks
Who’re the hawks and who the doves?
