Slave screams he thinks he knows what he wants
Slave screams thinks he has something to say
Slave screams he hears but doesn't want to listen
Slave screams he's being beat into submission
Don't open your eyes you won't like what you see
The devils of truth steal the souls of the free
Don't open your eyes take it from me
I have found
You can find
Happiness is slavery
Slave screams he spends his life learning conformity
Slave screams he claims he has his own identity
Slave screams he's going to cause the system to fall
Slave screams but he's glad to be chained to that wall
Don't open your eyes you won't like what you see
The blind have been blessed with security
Don't open your eyes take it from me
I have found
You can find
Happiness is slavery
I don't know what i am i don't know where i've been
Just (just) hurt and so much skin
Stick my head through the cage of this endless routine
Just some flesh caught in this big broken machine

    It's all about human vice: a laziness. To live in ignorance. And think that you're always be happy in that zone of dumbing comfort. But that's not truth, it's an deception and illusion. But you already believed in that. Self-slavery... Self-destructing...
