See the devil on the doorstep now
My, oh, my
Telling everybody, oh, just how to live their lives
Sliding down the information highway
Buying in just like a bunch of fools
Time is ticking and we can't go back
My, oh, my

What about the world today?
What about the place that we call home?
We’ve never been so many
And we've never been so alone

Keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking
But it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands
You come out clean
Fail to recognize the enemies within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are

One step forward making two steps back
My, oh, my
Riding piggy on the bad boys back for life
Lining up for the grand illusion
No answers for no questions asked
Lining up for the execution
Without knowing why

Keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking
But it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands
You come out clean
Fail to recognize the enemies within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are

It’s all about power
By taking control
Breakin' the will
And breakin' the soul
They suck us dry
'Til there’s nothing left
My oh my, my oh my

What about the world today?
What about the place that we call home?
We' ve never been so many
And we've never been so alone
So alone

Keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking
But it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands
You come out clean
Fail to recognize the enemies within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are

It’s all about power
By taking control
Breakin' the will
(Keep watchin' from your picket fence)
Breakin' the soul
They suck us dry
'Til there’s nothing left
My, oh, my
We are, we are
By taking control
But, we are, we are
It’s all about power
By taking control

    General Comment"They suck us dry (We are, we are)
    'Til there’s nothing left" -- guess this is the key, this is a protest song against a consumerist world, where we lose our precious time with stupid activities, without interaction, only looking for our own comfort ..
