lyrics

somewhere a line is drawn that says we're not the same my brother
look and see if you agree with how it's stratified
they teach of demarcation and stroke my aptitude now honey
gentle distribution how our numbers multiply…

you won't have consent from me
you can pull your offer right off the table
trust you implicitly ?
tell me who will be holding the bag for your crimes against all ?

behind your agency
all is traded commodity
your agenda's never free
it's time to declare a planet-wide state of emergency so we'll have…

a little transparency
is all we need to see through the smoke and mirrors

you won't have consent from me
till you choke on the truth from the blood in the streets

… and the world keeps on turning
the lips keep on moving tonight
from every channel we're sending you smiles and beguiling…
cruise missiles flying (cruise missiles flying)
consensus we're trying to buy - No No No
from a far I can hear that they're calling your number
they're calling.. they're calling.. you're falling tonight

and puppets of policy
wake to find the tides are turning… turning

I won't follow ! I won't follow !
I won't swallow ! I won't swallow !
and I hear the curtains- a-calling

for masters of slavery
we're another number on a grid that's failing

it's no conspiracy
all the names of the ones who have spoken through history
they silenced… silenced

I won't follow ! I won't follow !
I won't swallow ! I won't swallow !
and I hear the curtains-a-calling

I won't follow ! I won't follow !
I won't swallow ! I won't swallow !
time to pull the plug on this big three-ring side-show
