Dystopia – They Live lyrics

Leaders of the land playing god
Control our senses pavlous dogs
Kept sedated brainwashed to submit
A life of torturous hell is what our leaders give
(see you don't know this but...)
There's many things that we do wrong
Were worthless unemployed
And theyd rather have us gone
Were fucking up the city
And were taking up their space
So they're importing dopefor us
With hopes well someday die
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 were to dumb to rise above
And if that doesnt't do it
And were still in th 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 the drugs to fill your head
Educations limited
By governments control
They only teach you what they think
You really ought to know
Televisions just a reinforcer of control
Readjusting thoughts
Robs you of your soul
Desensitize the public
To violence, s**, and greed
Watch us kill eachother
For 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 just sell us the guns
Don't count on the system
To by easy on you
Cause the rich can buy their freedom
And the poor will be their tools
In you follow instruction
And do as your 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....
