Eyes closed, Minds closed
Oh say can't you see?
You've been bought - You've been taught...
Just follow the lead!

When work becomes, a four letter word
You're punished when you succeed
Evil is the man who's
Done more than he needs

Oh says can't you see?
What it takes to be free?
Not the rules - by fools
That need you to be
Helpless and small
Divided and fall
To sit up, beg and "please"
Oh say can't you see?

They may say they're here to help you
Oh say can't you see?
There was a time when being a good man
Was all we cared to be

Now they're the promise to everything
Some people don't even try
The only dream that the taker needs
Is for the ink to dry

Oh says can't you see?
What it takes to be free?
Not the rules - by fools
That need you to be
Helpless and small
Divided and fall
Get up off your knees!
Oh say can't you see?
