Investigate the meaning of your sentence What is it telling you? Where does it begin and where does it end? Question the nature of your orders Question the nature of your orders Question the nature of your orders What do they want from you? A rendezvous upon the sound The cars rev up the word goes round The words are weapons of their will Their words can hurt Their words can kill A burning phrase can burn a town A syllable can bring you down Their languages are coded Your image is eroded Listen to the sound you heard Learn to fight against their word Vocabularies of death Destruction in their breath They use the lie They use the myth Seek only to confuse And liberty abuse The lies they tell are pretty And blow up another city They steal away your freedom And your love Their sentimental calling signs Are calculatingly designed To rob you of your mind and time And still you listen to The lulling drone of reassuring voices Tunes to take away your choices Make you slaves to fancy words and phrases Until you're pushing up the daisies They steal away your freedom And your love
