Behind Enemy Lines – Behind Enemy Lines lyrics

Not interested in politics or don't want to fucking face it
But if we don't stand against oppression we might as well embrace it
When we act as if it doesn't affect us we do nothing but pretend
Because there's not a single place on earth that doesn't belong to them
Governed by the policies of an ignorant bigoted few
Targeted by the tactics they so willingly abuse
They manipulate our means of survival, discourage our desire to react
And insure our lack of involvement by keeping our apathy intact

Fuck what you think you know-don't want to deal with politics?
Fuck what you think you know-but there's no escape
Fuck what you think you know-where do you think you're going to hide?
Fuck what you think you know-we're behind enemy lines

Lines are all they feed us when politicians speak of freedom
Masquerading as democracy's guardians to make it seem as if we need them
They're out to save us from ourselves and contradict our common sense
As bureaucracy batters self-reliance at everyone's expense

Fuck what you think you know-don't want to deal with politics?
Fuck what you think you know-but there's no escape
Fuck what you think you know-where do you think you're going to hide?
Fuck what you think you know-we're behind enemy lines

What can we hope to accomplish when fighting in a war
Where those who we are fighting against are also the ones we're working for
People reach their breaking point when they've got nothing left to lose
So they sedate us with tiny victories that keep us all defused
Diverting our attention away from their power that they defend
Fearing what we're capable of if we didn't depend on them

Fuck what you think you know-don't want to deal with politics?
Fuck what you think you know-but there's no escape
Fuck what you think you know-where do you think you're going to hide?
Fuck what you think you know-we're behind enemy lines
