Those who run this world, their power lies within my mind.
My own ignorance is what gives them charge of my life.
It's the religion, education, books filled with false information.
I've grown up in this system. I've come to the decision
That I have been spoon-fed some lies.
And now it's my determination to find mental liberation
And the freedom of my soul depends heavily on what I know.
So I won't swallow these spoon-fed lies.

So I won't tell if you won't tell about the lies they teach.
The truth be known we understand they lie.

Learn all that you can. Cause if not you're a slave to the man,
And we censor ourselves when the books we leave on the shelf.
It's the religion, education, books filled with false information.
I've grown up in this system. I've come to the decision
That I have been spoon-fed some lies.
And now it's my determination to find mental liberation
And the freedom of my soul depends heavily on what I know.
So I won't swallow these spoon-fed lies.

So I won't tell if you won't tell about the lies they teach.
The truth be known we understand they lie.

You're feeling me once, you're feeling twice,
You're feeling me three, you're feeling me thrice,
But now you will see that I will rise and be free.

You're feeling me once, you're feeling twice,
You're feeling me three, you're feeling me thrice,
But now you will see that I will rise and be free.

    General CommentThis song's relating to the classic novel Fahrenheit 451, which is about a society where "firemen" are people who burn books filled with things the government doesn't want the people to know. The song's basically about the life of the protagonist who was a fireman that became curious, reading some of the books that were to be burned and decides to break away from the society
