"MK Ultra" as written by and Black Rebel Motorcycle....
I spit my faith on the city pavement
To keep a smile
I bought my legs from the US Government
To keep me in line

We are the ones that keep you high
We are the ones that warm the sky
And you're burning bright


I filled my head with another replacement
To keep me high
I shot my soul when they wanted to take it
Your worst ain't mine

We are the ones that keep you down
We are the ones that warm the ground
While our arms surround

She's my river of sunshine, she's my girl
She can save the US, save the world
Yeah she's alright, I'll be fine
There's no US, save your mind
Save your mind

I'll give you nothin if you're just gonna waste it
But that's alright
I'll give you love if your wanting the taste that
leaves you behind

We are the ones that keep you high
We are the ones that burn your pride
And you're burning bright

Your Gonna Make It, Your Gonna Suffer
Your Gonna Make It, Your Gonna Suffer
We're Gonna Make It, Your Gonna Suffer
Your Gonna Make It, We're Gonna Suffer

I've been waitin for the sun to come, lead me through the gates of Rome
Your gonna know they were never, never yours to kill

I've been waitin for the sun to come, show you all what's being done
You're gonna know they were never, never yours to kill

    Song Meaningi think this song is about exactly what it says it's about. mk ultra. no hidden meaning here, except the fact that mk ultra IS a real thing that messes with people's minds and lives. please look it up and make yourself aware. mind control is real and it happens every day. look around. open your eyes. i honestly think that's all this song is attempting to do - open our eyes. one of my favorites by them.
