Citizen Fish – Out Of Control lyrics

I used to smile at the camera
But now it's on every corner
And everyone is staring
Ignorant or tired or caring
Or just completely used to feeling
Watched all the time
Or holding back a sense of freedom
That comes out late at night

It's out of control

Orwell's future science fiction
Ended up a near prediction
Smug the rebel's lonely chorus
'We saw it before it saw us'
Flick the page to a few years later
The novelty is out of date -- a
Problem redefined has gone
Now we're told it's what we wanted

It's out of control
It's out of control
It's out of control

Now everyone's on camera
And everyone's an actor
Here's a random factor
Someone took away the screen
E-motion pictures in 3-D
Beyond control the human being
Is freer than the one projected

Being watched to keep control
Of 'crime' -- A buzzword has it's hold
Another such is 'you' -- it makes us
Follow where the message takes us
Either down the path to silence
Where no-one says more than they're told
Or to the realisation
Our containment needs permission

Our acceptance paves the way
That makes it worse when we get old
Grandad had so much to say
But all his anger had gone cold

Tried & tested, failed suppressed
Then new technology invested
Here's the future human being
Silent, nervous, dead or screaming

No! It's out of control!
No! No! It's out of control!
No! No! It's out of control!

No! No! It's out of control!
No! No! It's out of control!
No! No! It's out of control!
No! No! It's out of control!
No! No! It's out of control!
