From the age of the thought police- greetings
From the age of big brother- greetings
From the age of newspeak- greetings
Welcome to the age of continuous warfare
We are the free; we are the peaceful
They're the aggressors and they are the hateful
Who are they?
We're defending democracy; we're protecting our borders
They resent freedom and they utilize terror
Who are they?
They lurk in the shadows
Endlessly plotting to destroy our very way of life
If you do what we say then everything will be fine
We will protect you as we live in the age of
Faceless
Nameless
Endless
War
Who controls the past controls the future
Who controls the present controls the past
We have that control
You submit to authority when you're residing in fear
So don't ever question and don't you dare criticize
Don't believe what you see, just accept what you hear
It's in your best interest that your knowledge is purged
It's a beautiful thing the destruction of words
War is peace
Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength
It's a beautiful thing the destruction of words
Once we control what's spoken we'll see no more dissension
Just politicized images to skew your perception
You can't trust your own judgment; you can't trust yourselves
So we will protect you from yourselves
We will protect you; we will protect you
You are a threat to yourselves
So we will protect you
You are a threat to yourselves
So we will protect you
It doesn't matter if victory is possible
This war is not meant to be won
It is meant to be continuous
And that's only possible on the basis of ignorance
The most practical way to keep our power structure intact
Is to keep society on the brink of starvation
So we, as the ruling class, will maintain our power
By waging war against our own population
We will break you'' we will break you
Keep your dissent to yourselves
Or we will break you
Keep your dissent to yourselves
Or we will break you
Here comes a candle to light you to bed
Here comes a chopper to chop off your head
From the age of the thought police- beware
From the age of big brother- beware
From the age of newspeak- beware
Beware of the motive in continuous warfare
You may thing we are free' you may think we are peaceful
But we're the aggressors and we are the hateful
Who are we?
We dismantle democracy; we invade others' borders
We repress freedom and we utilize terror
Who are we?
We'll drive you into the shadows
Forever destroying your very way of life
If you're not on our side then you'll be in our sights
There's no neutrality in our "war on terror"
We are the enemy; we are the enemy
Take a good look at ourselves
Because we are the enemy
Take a good look at ourselves
Because we are the enemy
