They are human beings, but they are not humane
Illusion is the solution in this magicians' game
I show them only shadows to make it appear
that the truth is so simple, benign and sincere
To pacify
To occupy
To gentrify
To solidify

This is all we've ever meant you to be
Just look in amazement at the flickering screens
The commands are listed here for all to see
Camera's eye everywhere, still you think you are free

In status and in state
To anyone, to any fate
In status and in state
To anyone, to any fate

Stay right in line, don't you ever step aside
Never think for yourselves, for I will abide
You are not alone, you'll never be alone
For I am here beside, watching the minds decline

We'll keep your attracted to all our distractions
Erasing any doubts and crushing all factions
So become a heathen within our new heaven
No need to ever think as to what it all may mean
