Re-Gaining Unconsciousness

First they put away the dealers, keep our kids safe and off the street
Then they put away the prostitutes, keep married men cloistered at home
Then they shooed away the bums, then they beat and bashed the queers
Turned away asylum seekers, fed us suspicions and fears
We didn’t raise our voice, we didn’t make a fuss
It’s funny there was no one left to notice when they came for us

Looks like witches are in season, you better fly your flag and be aware
Of anyone who might fit the description, diversity is now our biggest fear
Now with our conversations tapped and our differences exposed
How ya supposed to love your neighbor, without minds and curtains closed
We used to worry about big brother, now we got a big father and an even bigger mother
And you still believe, this aristocracy gives a fuck about you
They put the mock, in demockracy and you swallowed every hook
The sad truth is you would rather follow the school into the net
Cuz swimming alone at sea is not the kind of freedom you actually want
So go back to your crib and suck on a tit and go bask in the warmth of your diaper
You’re sitting in shit and piss while sucking a huge pacifier a country of adult infants
A legion of mental midgets a country of adult infants a country of adult infants
All re-gaining their unconsciousness.
