Crush the spirit with officious gimmicks
Pray to your leaders for blessing and merit
Contact broken is dull placation

Neuter all bonding capacity
Banned in favour of efficiency

Vocal castration brings atmosphere death
Dissent subdued, a purge on outlets
Digression’s refuge, internalised fight
Distance and obstacles sanitised

Spark disconnected at your behest
Divide and conquer your proud epithet
Caging all lions, resigned to the circus
Friendship does not sell, hence it is surplus


Control. Control. Control. Control.
A prisoner speaks out of line – no parole
Control. Control. Control. Control.
Remote ignorance to stifle our souls, yeah.

These blue boards, a metaphor
Absence of life, dying inside
