Confident that the arm of the law can’t reach you

Crack the whip, snap the backs of the ones who elect you



The hope of the people?

What about all the promises?

So now what do we get?

But in the public eye

You’re so beautiful, you’re so perfect

You’re dead inside, I just know it



Your skin it cuts like mine

Grab the knife let’s look inside

A heart that’s stitched in plastic

Now the world can see you are a fraud

The world can see you are empty



Empty

    General CommentThere is a speech recording at the end of this song. It is a speech by Mario Savio called "Bodies upon the gears" and it goes as followed:

    "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious–makes you so sick at heart–that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all."
