Assembly line, humans pumped with lies
Line them up, load them tight
Packed like cigarettes
A new committee to breed lukewarm souls

Get off my back (please)
Swallow your pride and gag
Harriet Tubman, will you set the captives free for the underground?

Take long drags on yourself
With cracker-jack posses and smiles
Another snubbed beneath your toe

Get off my back (please)
Swallow your pride and gag
Harriet Tubman, will you set the captives free for the underground?

    General CommentI think this song is about conformity to superficial social norms, like the song that comes before it, "Confessions."
