I will steal their time, I will steal their days,

I'll have them digging their very own graves.

I will steal their lives, and narrow the ways

in which they could ever try to escape.

_

Around, and around, and around again,

telling them it was the others' intent.

Brainwash the masses and kill all dissent,

around and around and around again.

-

I will keep them dumb, and keep them hungry,

the American Dream, just out of reach,

tell them they can have it all, if they bleed

if they bleed for me, if they bleed for me.

-

Around, and around, and around again,

telling them it was the others' intent.

Brainwash the masses and kill all dissent,

around and around and around again.

-

Value profit over humanity,

choose which professions live in poverty,

tax the poor so we can be more wealthy,

and promote hatred over unity.

-

Government run by paying companies,

A Supreme Court known for their biassing,

who will make room for only My beliefs;

No party is safe, all tried are guilty.

-

Around, and around, and around again,

telling them it was the others' intent,

Brainwash the masses and kill all dissent,

around and around and around again.
