I've been brainwashed
I've been brainwashed
I woke up one morning and I took a look around
found myself sleeping in the city dog pound
told myself this just can't be
in the home of the brave and the land of the free
I finally found my voice and I began to shout
I got to got to tell you what it's all about
I've been brainwashed

Now it pours from my papers from my radio
telling me what to do and which way to go
white knight charging down at me with a lance
giants in the valley I don't stand me a chance
stamp out over population take a walk in outer space
I got to got to tell you what we all got to face
We've been brainwashed

Down with the hangman
rather fight than switch
public insulation don't know which is which
we won ourselves a victory the casualties were light
judging by the news machine it ain't much of a fight
60 million people reading all about Viet Nam
85 percent of them don't give a damn
They've been brainwashed
They've been brainwashed
