Breaking the waves, freeing the slaves
Killing the government, still in their cage
The governor's son, with daddy's new gun
“Come out and play let's have some fun”

Break all the rules, ruin the schools
How will they know which ones are the fools?
Just swallow the pill, with every new fill
You feel an urge they can't fulfil

This time around I'm staying for the show
I'm tired of the fact that you don't want to know …

So how does it feel to have your own seal?
All those sad stories you have to conceal
You wouldn't believe what we could achieve
If you weren't blind and so naive

Just open your eyes, and say your goodbyes
Nobody wants you and your goddamn lies!
Just swallow the pill, with every new fill
You feel an urge they can't fulfil

This time around I'm staying for the show
I'm tired of the fact that you don't want to know
But get used to the fact that I'm not gonna go
This time around I'm staying for the show …

Hide it in your cheek and smile at the guards, wait, then spit it out
Hide it in your cheek and smile at the guards, wait, then spit it out
Hide it in your cheek and smile at the guards, wait, then spit it out
Hide it in your cheek and smile at the guards, please, please

Listen to the sound of silence in your mind
Please listen to the sound of silence in your mind
