I fail to see the lies they seek
I fail to hear their dying screams
I fail to waken from this sleep
I fail to lead my loyal sheep

Take away your voice
Take away your choice
We've come a long long way
We're here, and here to stay
Take away your sight
Take away your rights
We've got you in our net
We are your government

Give you basic needs
Give you hate and greed
We've come a long long way
We're here, and here to stay
Show you desperation
Show you a failing nation
We've got you in our net
We are your government

Sleep
Sleep
Sleep
Sleep

I fail to see the lies they seek
I fail to hear their dying screams
I fail to waken from this sleep
I fail to lead my loyal sheep

My mind awake
My body whole
I consciously break from this hold
I no longer will live this lie
I will fight back
The greys must die

    General CommentDespite the alien imagery, I think this song is really meaningfull in 2005 considering all the mindwashing our government is trying to do to us.
    It feels like the average person is not seeing the 'failing nation' for what it truly is.

    The 'lies' we don't know are lies. The 'dying screams' of Iraqi children we never hear.. I think this song is a very powerful message to wake up and do something NOW.
