  • Judging simply by the looks and sounds,
    Life’s still been shovn’ you round n’ round.
    Jesters relentlessly planning their attacks,
    Jokers laughn’ each time you attempt to act.
    Spades and Hearts, well they never speak,
    All-star playing cards the mass are duped to seek.
    Two pairs have long ago lost their relevant use,
    As gangs of suits fatally rule the roost.

    Watch us open their eyes
    To a new world.

    Propaganda utters boldly, “Climb that ladder!”
    Must go to college or you’ll be so much sadder.
    Build that resume quick and beat all other jobless,
    As only one position’s open, others stay homeless!
    Privileged idiots find well paying jobs selling debt,
    “American Dream Mortgage” is now FedEx sent.
    Have babies, start wars, cause in god we trust,
    While celebrities preach, “Austerity’s a must.”

    Watch us open their eyes
    To a new world.

    Captain Morgan befriends Johnny Walker Red,
    Controlling the brains of the billion living dead.
    Jaeger Meister bombs and whiskey shooters,
    Killing minds who worship fake massive hooters.
    “Just Do It” never is held quite responsible.
    You still believe in saying “Nothing’s Impossible!”?
    No more attention paid to million dollar players,
    Cause Virgin Mary’s birthing MadMen slayers.

    Watch us open their eyes
    To a new world.

    Childish fighting prospers among the left and right,
    As corporate bribes both, capturing all the might.
    Puppets in office, main stream citizens believe,
    Have their interest at heart, no tricks up their sleeves.
    “Vote and promote your politician,” the adman’s tool,
    “Your vote makes a difference!” Are you really a fool?
    There’s only toxic democracy and it’s ruled by the banks.
    Revolution’s upon us, let the oppressed finally give thanks.

    Watch us open their eyes
    To a new world.
