Did you hear that? The subtle whispers of the insignificant minds
That control your thought, as well as your behavior.
Drink this, buy that, tell her she’s your soul mate
Then figure out which of the two of you
Will visit the cat on the weekends.
We conform to the society they build for us
Then mock those that do not conform
That that which
We were told to conform to.
Did you see that? They pulled the wool over your eyes
To pull out a puppet
That speaks the words, they tell you
You want to hear.
Because you certainly don’t have the intelligence
To think for yourself.
Books they allow you to read
Talking all about the conquest
How grand your country is
Because they killed people
To make money
Then tell you
It was for your freedom.
When you want to smoke marijuana
Get a little too drunk in a bar
Tell a cop where he can go
Collect rain water
Fix a broken system
Investigate a government official
Not pay taxes
Stop the discrimination of immigrants
Voice an unpopular opinion
Where your freedoms are.
