lyrics

Hypnotized me
And used me
And drained me

Sacrificed me - I was a corporate offering
Liberated - I’m not a fucking victim

So you’re on the dole
They gave you the boot
Murder is wrong
Unless they’re wearing a suit
Corporate lifestyle’s not for you
That meager wage just won’t do

I am the superior I own this place
Draining the peasant - I have the say
I’m the laborer and I got the fucking bomb
And explosions are my favorite song

15 years been building this shit for you
The sadness, the debt, the hunger
We raised your thrones
We gave our lives to you
The hunger, the rent, the hate

Let us eat bills, rubbish, and dirt
Trickle down’s another scam
Somewhere there’s utopia waiting
Or I’ll be damned

Falling asleep with implanted dreams
I’m myself, you don’t own me
Liberated - I don’t listen no more
To my master's voice

Under the spell of profit seduction
We gave up our means of production
Cubicle slave for the company
Or a sweating drone in a factory

One sewered link tears the whole chain down
The unshackled rowers make the captain drown
Do not submit to your captor's demands
They’re making money off of your hands
