Brainwashed

Brainwashed: Sober, faithful, honest liarsAddicted, careful, corporate buyers
Insurance salesman selling promised mornings
Ambitious teachers telling stories
Give me liberty in exchange for death
Give me freedom in exchange for theft
He is not your willing captive
She is not your ready slave
What you bought you can't take with you
And all you've rescued you cannot save.
You think that you're the only one
Man everyone has problems too
So don't try to sell me on the weather,
Stories of facing deepest, darkest fears
Plans of your world domination
Fall right past my deaf ears

Brainwashed

Sober, faithful, honest liars
Addicted, careful, corporate buyers
Insurance salesman selling promised mornings
Ambitious teachers telling stories
Give me liberty in exchange for death
Give me freedom in exchange for theft
He is not your willing captive
She is not your ready slave
What you bought you can’t take with you
And all you’ve rescued you cannot save.
You think that you’re the only one
Man everyone has problems too
So don’t try to sell me on the weather,
Stories of facing deepest, darkest fears
Plans of your world domination
Fall right past my deaf ears
