I'm flesh and blood stretched over a steel frame
I'm a simple program, broken record, bound and trained
two eyes stare straight but cannot see
kept alive but forbid to breathe
a warning label, product harmful if ingested
herbicides, yellow fives, insecticides kill me from inside
created in laboratories, processed to death in factories
this is where we split in two
you'll grow fat and I'll stay hungry
you'll pay attention too when the cross hair's lining up on you
I renounce number and rank
tore them out
withdrew from the race, rewired
pulled it apart with these pliers
the insides came unglued
the eyes began to focus
the lungs expanded with the truth
these gifts you've given me too delicate to hold
never priced, scanned, bought or sold
from the rooftops we can watch the fires burn
when will they ever learn?
when will they ever learn?

    Love this one
    "this is where we split in two" : You´re a dumb ass and i focus and read between the lines to know the truth, you just follow the system
    "when will they ever know..."
