I can see that you can't see
the blind lead's the blind
one voice one mind
guess you bought the facade
so give up your soul to the TV god now
no struggle no fight
when you're told what is wrong and told what is right
not a thought not a peep
cause you have no say in the land of the sheep
learn in the land of the sheep
wide awake or fast asleep
can't think for yourself
lie down get beat
by the media's primary function
brainwash the masses death and destruction
burn my eyes till my sight is blurred
herd the flock where the flock cant be heard
land of the sheep home of the slave
one foot in the grave no we can't be saved


They blind my eyes for fear of my mind...

Resist the system light up let it burn!
They blind my eyes for fear of my mind
won't submit to my suicide...


Ignorance breeds ignorance
amidst all the pain
anger, guilt, and shame
violence seem's the American dream
its playing 24/7 on the silver screen
target our children (BOW!)
product to sell
when they turn 18 lock em' up in a cell
no rehabilition
crime vacation
land of the sheep lost generation
Think for yourself!

They blind my eyes for fear of my mind...
Resist the system light up let it burn
They blind my eyes for fear of my mind...
wont submit to my suicide...
wont submit to my suicide...
wont submit to my suicide...


(You can't bring me down... can't bring me down...) x2
You can reject me
Take away my pride
You say you hate me
How can you hate me?
You helped create me
And now i stand
You nightmare has been given life
Never die... Never dieeeee


They blind my eyes for fear of my mind...
Resist the system light up let it burn!
They blind my eyes for fear of my mind...
(and think for yourself)
They blind my eyes for fear of my mind...
(and think for yourself)
(and think for yourself)

RESIST! RESIST!
(and think for yourself)
They blind my eyes for fear of my mind...
(and think for yourself)
(and think for yourself)
RESIST! RESIST! RESIST! RESIST!


Don't surrender... you have got to think... think for yourself!

    General CommentI think it's more so about Anti-Conformity.
    It makes total sense.
    Another "Blind Sheep" Born to live and Die for his Country.
    Screw that is all I have to say.
    "violence seem's the American dream "
    Seems like something George Bush would say...

    General Comment"I can see that you can't see
    the blind lead's the blind
    one voice one mind
    guess you bought the facade
    so give up your soul to the TV god now"

    This is talking about one man (the president) controlling an entire country which no one man should ever have that power, and he gets there through media with his broken promises (lies).

    "no struggle no fight
    when you're told what is wrong and told what is right
    not a thought not a peep
    cause you have no say in the land of the sheep"

    You have two options basically in America (one more than a dictatorship) Republican or Democrat, and they really aren't that different from each other nowadays, it's just an illusion to think you have some kind of choice (Coke and Pepsi).

    "Learn in the land of the sheep
    wide awake or fast asleep
    can't think for yourself
    lie down get beat"

    Amongst this absurd ideology of one mind for the masses, you must sift through the generic thinking and come up with your own opinion (on anything) or just give up and be part the mainstream.

    "by the media's primary function
    brainwash the masses death and destruction
    burn my eyes till my sight is blurred
    herd the flock where the flock cant be heard
    land of the sheep home of the slave
    one foot in the grave no we can't be saved"

    All of the mainstream media (especially the news) is biased, and are serving political parties. They pump you full of fear and mess with your logic and you see it so much that it distorts your thinking into what they want you to believe. It seems like whenever a mass movement of revolt pops up it gets shut down eventually once it becomes a legitimate threat, we're slaves in every aspect of life as everything it seems is regulated by government and controls every aspect of your life....You're not free at all.

    "They blind my eyes for fear of my mind...
    Resist the system light up let it burn!
    They blind my eyes for fear of my mind
    won't submit to my suicide..."

    The people in control of the world don't want you to think for yourself, that affects their agenda. Everything is a designed system formed by the powerful wealthy people of every country. Don't give in, do something....don't just be a victim of the system. Fight the system, any way you can.

    "Ignorance breeds ignorance
    amidst all the pain
    anger, guilt, and shame
    violence seems the American dream
    its playing 24/7 on the silver screen
    target our children (BOW!)
    product to sell
    when they turn 18 lock em' up in a cell
    no rehabilitation
    crime vacation
    land of the sheep lost generation
    Think for yourself!"

    War is portrayed as being patriotic, when really it's designed for ignorant people to fight under false beliefs as the people who orchestrated the war are getting rich off of weapons sales and stolen natural resources for the most part. Even locking people up in your own country is big business, it's a system in itself and every player needs each other from the offender, to the jail to the court system to the politics behind it all.

    General CommentI hope you all get the right lyrics now :) lol I heard this song quite a few times to get it just right.

    As far as the song goes, I like the message he's conveying. When he say's, "Learn in the land of the sheep/wide awake or fast asleep/can't think for yourself
    lie down get beat/by the media's primary function/brainwash the masses death and destruction"... I think he means (this is completely metaphorical don' take it lieteral :P) that society is like the cast of a movie/play and the "media" is the director. If the media say's the color red is bad then the majority of people will not where red... anyone get me? lol Also on this line "Violence seem's the American dream/its playing 24/7 on the silver screen/target our children (BOW!)/product to sell/when they turn 18 lock em' up in a cell"... that can add to my previous statement about media controlling soceity. If, let's say a child, see's violence he might think it's ok or something fun. Obviously it's up to the parent to teach their kid what's rigth and wrong, not music/movies/etc.. Anyway, the media aim's violence or what not at kid's b/c they know most kid's like it even though the companies saying they don't condone the violence are the same one's supplying/aiming it at kid's. Oh well that's my 1st little rant and lyric post on here. Please reply and give your opinions :)

    General CommentThis song seems to coincide PERFECTLY with the Kurt Vonnegut story "Harrisson Burgeron"; In it, a society is completely controlled by the government and media, and some people are quite literally blinded to make them equal to a "lowest common denominator"

    Harrisson was basically a "superman"; He was very strong and very smart. If you read the story (fairly short) and then listen to the song it makes perfect sense.

    General Commenti think the singer again depends on peoples lives to make himself happy . the more i read these lyrics , the more i find this guy dumb . nobody forces you to do anything or feel anything , you do that to yourself . expressing your pain is one thing but saying that how others being conformed is ''destroying'' you makes me think you need a hobby ...

    also , its easy to buy into this kind of crap . it plays on your emotions and makes you think ''someone understand'' .. bleh , this is garbage .sorry , no good .
