Hush, it's not safe to talk
That terminal could be switched on
The IBMs can monitor and flag the things we say
Make sure you keep your cover up
And cover up your TV when you call me
And you make sure you watch your TV every day

Take nothing for granted
It's a war, always remember
It's like holding back the ocean
Trying to hold onto your mind
Don't forget the reason why you started in the first place
It's a struggle like no other for the fate of humankind

(Repeat from start)

(Political rant)

(Repeat from take nothing for granted)

The fate of humankind [4x]

    General CommentThis song reminds me of 1984. There are two people who are resisting an omniscient totalitarian government. They need to keep their cover up, and cover up their TVs (so the two-way telescreens can't monitor them!), and they need to watch their TV every day (to prevent suspicion).

    The "IBMs" that monitor conversations remind me of the FBI's Carnivore system.
