We are all controlled by reinforcement or rules
Passed by those who are merely the tools of a system
Where achievement is based on deceit of the masses
By someone in whom they believe
We are all controlled by the straight-line thinking of straight-line thinkers
Who gave up drinking and smoking to avoid being lower
Than their aspirations would allow them to go
We are all controlled by fear of the unknown
Because we re not told all that there is to know
About things we consider as normal existence
So we accept exploitation and show no resistance
We are all controlled in our thoughts and our actions
By things we were told by past generations
Of parents who used to rebel just the same as we do now so who gets the blame?
We are the rebels like the rebels before us
Pre-destined to scream in an out of tune

Chorus of voices repeating the words of the past
That diffuse in the process of aging too fast
Deep in the soul if there is one it tells you to do
As you feel not as someone outside you dictates through their own misguided conception
Of what part you must play in this game of deception
