I started watchin´ them all down the line
Keep steppin´ and rejectin´ all of the time
They try to pull me in
Can't let that happen again
They try to do it again all on me


Sedation throughout the nation
We're screaming. we're screaming,
We're screaming black and blue
Intoxication of a generation
We're screaming. we're screaming,
We're screaming black and blue
The blind leading the blind
They told me I was dumb
They said their security system was too big to outrun
Well I broke away and I'm never goin´ back
For all the souls they broke
Mine never cracked


Sedation throughout the nation
We're screaming. we're screaming, we're screaming
Black and blue
Intoxication of a generation
We're screaming. we're screaming,
We're screaming black and blue
Yeah what you gonna do ahhhh What you gonna do


Sedation throughout the nation
We're screaming. we're screaming,
We're screaming black and blue
Intoxication of a generation
We're screaming. we're screaming,
We're screaming black and blue
Sedation throughout the nation
We're screaming. we're screaming,
We're screaming black and blue
Intoxication of a generation
We're screaming. we're screaming,
We're screaming black and blue

    General CommentThis song always pops into my head whenever I wind up at some self-important, stupid party on a lost Friday night. "Sedation throughout the nation...intoxication of a generation." Nobody really gives a shit about anything and so they go out and get blasted and waste their time looking pretty and drinking. I always feel glad that I never fell into that world and still use my brain...but that's just what the song means to me.

    Also, who sings this? Freeman?
