Otep - Smash The Control Machine

rate me

<BR>

(With the perfect hair<br>

And the perfect wife<br>

And the perfect kids<br>

And the perfect life<br>

I will finally be somebody...)<br>

<br>

(Let's play born-again American, resistance is the game!)<br>

<br>

Two pigs wearing suits<br>

Brought the news<br>

That I'm wanted by the bank<br>

<br>

They say the rent is due<br>

Caesar's onto you<br>

So you better remember your place<br>

<br>

Then they outsourced my job<br>

And gave a raise to my boss<br>

<br>

Bailed out the banks<br>

But billed me for the loss<br>

<br>

They say we must submit<br>

And be one with the Machine<br>

<br>

Because the Kingdom of Fear<br>

Needs compliance to succeed<br>

<br>

So waterboard the kids for fun<br>

It's all the rage<br>

<br>

And play born-again American<br>

Resistance is the game<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

Work, buy, consume, die<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

Happy little slaves for minimum wage<br>

<br>

(The revolution will be monetized<br>

And streamed live via renegade WiFi)<br>

<br>

The clinic said I'm sick<br>

Toxic..... and impure<br>

<br>

But there isn't any cure<br>

For the poor or uninsured<br>

<br>

So we live our digital lives<br>

On multiple screens<br>

<br>

And we forget that<br>

The blood of the workers<br>

Grease the machines<br>

<br>

In the Psalm of the Fiends<br>

Love ...... discriminates<br>

<br>

While the fat cats feed the rats<br>

Their daily dose of cake<br>

<br>

So waterboard the kids for fun<br>

It's all the rage<br>

<br>

And play born-again American<br>

Resistance is the game<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

Work, buy, consume, die<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

Happy little slaves for minimum wage<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

Work, buy, consume, die<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

Haters, betrayers, liars, and thieves<br>

<br>

(America)<br>

<br>

She sold her soul<br>

For designer clothes<br>

<br>

For the perfect lips<br>

And the perfect nose<br>

<br>

The winner in the end<br>

Always owns the most<br>

<br>

Reality tv told her so!<br>

<br>

(Mammonites)<br>

<br>

Money changer!<br>

Greedy bankers!<br>

<br>

This is the Peoples House!<br>

<br>

My minister has a sinister plan<br>

To save my soul with a credit card scam<br>

<br>

Exploitation is contagious<br>

For the selfish & self-inflated<br>

<br>

Start a war, use the poor,<br>

Watch our profits soar & soar<br>

<br>

We've become a nation of wolves<br>

Ruled by sheep<br>

<br>

Owned by swine<br>

Overfed & put to sleep<br>

<br>

And while the media's elite<br>

Decrees what to think<br>

<br>

I am wide awake<br>

On the edge<br>

And on the brink<br>

<br>

So when Atlas shrugs<br>

And The Fountainhead bleeds<br>

And when Walstreet Apostles<br>

Preach a gospel of greed<br>

<br>

I'll renounce the fame of this gluttonous age<br>

And be a Born-again American<br>

Resistance is to blame!<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

Work, buy, consume, die<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

Haters, betrayers, liars, and theives<br>

<br>

SMASH THE CONTROL MACHINE<br>

A nation of wolves - ruled by sheep!<br>

<br>

Exploitation is contagious<br>

Exploitation is contagious<br>

Exploitation is contagious<br>

Exploitation............<br>

<BR><BR>
