Lines and rows, rows and lines
Boundaries you don’t dare go outside
Take your beating with a smile
Everything is now for sale

What’s the price of a stolen life?
What’s the salary to line up like a soldier?
Then march into the sea?

Seen and heard about their new advances
King convenience got a new crown
I’d rather be left behind
Then be a well trained failure

So let’s take a commercial break
Pause this masterpiece
The only words from our sponsors are
“you can’t have anything”

There’s a window I’ve been trying to look out
There’s some scenery I’ve never seen before
But a few say this cannot be allowed
Keep your heads and hands inside
Keep your single file lines
Keep it to yourself

Voices said to me
You don’t need a fucking cubicle to be free
I’ll sit all alone and play guitar for hours
In this crumbling room I call home now
Who’s to say that dreams are not allowed
Can you understand me now?
I’m screaming it loud

I step back and take a look in from the outside
I see neon signs and traffic lights and lost time

    General CommentGotta love this song. Each verse deals with someting different, but still related. Including... politics, useless wars, technology, brainwashing, freedom and individuality etc.
