[Robot voice]: We are intent only on our own gain.

Tune in and avert your eyes to the blank telescreen.
GO!
They're watching you sleep.
Telling you to eat, for it could be Soylent Green.

Now, now, now, look away and go back to bed.
They will get what they need.
Will we sleep, work, and play?
When we consume and obey.

Cuz we are all born into a control mindset.
God/money makes a death threat on ethics.
Governed by greed and a stale routine.
Can we just justify the means if we're plugged in
We all to wake up cuz we've been detached for too long.
We need to deprogram from
Shifting with the public eye.
We have a right to question why.
See through the lies.
Re-sensitize. And look closer.

Kids, school. Get married and beyond.
Start a family. Hurry, move along.
You might start to think with a different mood.
These are only mine that you've never used anyway.

Walk on the white line.
Brainwashed!
Walk on the same side.
Play dead!
It's secure and safe like. You need it all...

To be plugged in
We all to wake up cuz we've been detached for too long.
We need to deprogram from shifting with the public eye.
We have a right to question why.
See through the lies.
Re-sensitize. And look closer.
And look closer in!

NIGHTMARE! Wide awake, fully aware.
WE SLEEP! On a quest to find out where.
NIGHTMARE! The dream turned into a scare.
WE SLEEP! A fascinating new nightmare.
NIGHTMARE! And wide awake, fully aware.
WE SLEEP! On a quest to find out where.
NIGHTMARE! The dreamed turned into a scare.
WE SLEEP! A fascinating new nightmare.
NIGHTMARES!

Walk on the white line.
Brainwashed!
And walk on the same side.
Play dead!
It's secure and safe like. You need it all.

They want benign complacency.

THIS IS WHERE WE'VE GOT TO LOOK CLOSER!

Plugged in, tuned out. Wake up!
Plugged in, tuned out. Wake up!
Plugged in, tuned out.
We all to wake up cuz we've been detached for too long.
Need to deprogram from
Shifting with the public eye.
We have a right to question why.
See through the lies.
Re-sensitize. And look closer.
Now, now, look closer.
