I'm in love with you I know
And I know that you love me too
I'm in love with you I know
I'm in love with everyone too
We're all comrades now you know
We're all brothers under the skin
With a few adjustments now
Living in the perfect system

The adjustment's simple there is really no pain
You'll hardly notice anything has changed
Living in a programmed life never really has ups and downs
There's no need for fighting now
There's no reason to wear a frown

In a perfect system
There's no confrontation
Unnecessary friction
To impede our concentration
We've simply done away with
Unnecessary friction
I live in a system
I got an occupation
I get enough nutrition
By eating protein biscuits
Recommended by the system
It's routine regulation
I had an operation . . .

I'm in love with you I know
And I know that you love me too
I'm in love with you I know
I'm in love with everyone too

I can tell by the look in your blank dull eyes
That you agree, but I'm not a bit surprised

Living in a programmed life never really has ups and downs
There's no need for fighting now
There's no reason to wear a frown

I had an operation
With no adverse reaction
They tampered with my brain some
It helped me see the reason
For living in the system
It helped me see the reason

(We're all brothers in a perfect world)
In a perfect world there's uniformity
(We're all brothers in a perfect world)
In a perfect world there's conformity
(We're all brothers in a perfect world)

There's no need for spontaneity
Perfect system we're all brothers to the end
Brothers to the end
Brothers to the end
I know and I know that you love me too
(Brothers to the end) I know I'm in love with everyone too
(Brothers to the end) I know we're all comrades under the skin
(Brothers to the end) I know living in a perfect system
BROTHERS TO THE END
