They Live

Leaders of the land
Playing God
Control our senses
Pavlous dogs

Kept sedated
Brainwashed to submit
Life of tortutous hell
Is what our leaders give

(See you don’t know this but…)
There’s many things that we do wrong
We’re worthless, unemployed
And they’d rather have us gone

We’re fucking up the city
And we’re taking up their space
So they’re importing dope for us
With hopes we’ll die someday

Our lives are being sucked dry
Just to be sacrificed
For a fascist, sexist, lie

They keep it all illegal
So they can always lock us up
But they still want us to dope
So we’re dumb to rise above

And if that doesn’t do it
And we’re still in the way
They’ve created a disease for us
With no cure (or so they say)

Work away a lifetime
Just to end up dead
Conveniently provided
With drugs to fill your head

Education’s limited
By government control
They only teach you what they think
You really ought to know

Television’s just a reinforcer of control
Re-adjusting thoughts, robs you of your soul
Desensitize the public, to violence, sex, and greed
Watch us kill each other for all our wants and needs

All the sins are here for us, indulge and have some fun
They tell us not to murder but they’ll still sell us the guns
Don’t count on the system to be easy on you
Cause the rich can buy their freedom and the poor will be their tools

If you follow instructions and do as you are told
Life will be much easier they’ll fit you in the mold
They’re working for a better world, harmonious and new
Peace, love, and unity except for you and you and you…
