Brains Washed

You tell us black is white
And night is day
And we believe you
Of course we do
You live in fear of the truth
And we live in fear of you

Your words are senseless
When your actions belie what you say
You have a hold on us
We have to depend on you today
But you have no love to give us now
We’re too much trouble, we just get in your way

You use a potent elixir
To forget about the things you do
You forget about us, too
But there’s no magic potion for us
The children who struggle
To look up to you

Yes, we want to look up to you
Admire, respect and honor you
Isn’t that what children are supposed to do?
But your passion is not for us and
Down here beneath your heel we know it’s true-
That’s why we look up at you with fear.
