Don’t look into the light
Forget everything that they told you
We are being watched by them
Run as fast as you can

Searching his old, sacred eyes
Black waxing opals with a rim of blue
I felt ghosts a-gathering
Sudden, shiverous, freezing cold

He said he spent the night erasing tapes
His mangled mouth screamed, “they’re on to us!!”
We smiled and assimilated
But now that’s all oblivious

I ran and I ran and I ran and I ran
Into a rainbow
If this is reality, I must be dead
That’s how the story goes
Erase a Person
Erase a Person
Erase a Person

Behavior, is it a matter of choice?
Which is more dispensable, freedom or health?
Some say wars, they are a scapegoat
Distract the people from the real enemy

The Fourth Need is not a disease
Doings based upon the baring of one’s head
Addiction is to the mind more than chemistry
Separate the Church and State
Get the fuck out of our head

And he was locked away for 25 years
They say he chose to harm his sweet self
Underneath lies the governments’ secret River of Tears
Rushing innocent souls to hell

I ran and I ran and I ran and I ran
Into a rainbow
If this is reality, I must be dead
That’s how the story goes
Erase a Person
Erase a Person
Erase a Person

    General Commentthis song imbues a sense of extreme paranoia - fears of complete control by the government, succuming of the individual to Big Brother
