"The Clone" as written by Mathew Paul Baumbach, Brendon Cohen, Michael Thomas Fleischmann, Michael Kennedy and Tim Williams....
I read the books that they told me I should read
I spoke the words that hey told me I should speak
I was the person, the person that they told me to be

I went to places they told me I should go
I learned the rules that they told me I should know
I was a model, a model for the status quo

And with all that they programmed into my mind
There's something I'm missing but nothing to find
One after the other the cycle parades
Tomorrow one more clone is made

(Chorus)
Listen and put you ear to the ground
You can't stop the engine if you can't hear the sound
Look up and throw you hands in the air
You can't stop the engine going round

I got the haircut they told me I should get
I can't remember what they said to forget
I'm just a number, another to the government

I went to church where they told me I should pray
I paid the taxes they told me I should pay
I got the family the house and bills and Chevrolet

With all that they programmed into my mind
There's something I'm missing but nothing to find
One after the other the cycle parades
Tomorrow one more clone is made

(Chorus)

They look like you and me
And now we're all the same you see
I go to work each day
And wish my life away

With all that they programmed into my mind
There's something I'm missing but nothing to find
One after the other the cycle parades
Tomorrow one more clone is made

(Chorus)
