    *Mental Slavery*

    Slipping and sliding
    Back into the past
    Foolishly buying
    All the foolishness they've said

    Stacking me against you
    Pitting you against me
    Does it hurt to stretch the truth
    If the lie is so easy

    Keeping us under lock and key
    Mental Slavery

    Under their thumbs
    We're being kept
    Simple pawns
    In their game of chess

    We take them at their word
    This herd of talking heads
    As we rely on every line
    That we're being fed

    Keeping us under lock and key
    Mental Slavery

    With the slightest of resistance
    We feel we should fight back
    But at our own insistence
    It's ambition that we lack

    So we follow along the path
    Eyes closed to reality
    Turning us against each other
    Makes it hard to see

    Keeping us under lock and key
    Mental Slavery
