We live in a world that believes in "equality"
Just not in the worlds of finance or the economy
Capitalism robs the poor and gives to the rich
Communism doesn't work and socialism's a bitch
You teach us the benefits of nationalist pride
Don't forget in the French revolution thousands died
The long-lasting results included the guillotine
They executed the common people, the king and queen
It was a bloodbath that demonstrated no discrimination
Is that your view of equal opportunity and unification?
We live in the lucky country, the 51st American state
We follower the follower of Dubya's blind hate
Nationalism is a weapon of mass destruction
Still you advocate its instruction
You teach us about the Crusades
Then condemn Osama
You teach us about the wonders of privatisation
But the markets are a drama
You teach us about God
That we must repent lest we burn in hell
But this world grows more hell-like
And humanity seems mentally unwell
What the fuck is with you and your screwed up self-view?
Your most Christian philosophy is do unto others before the do unto you

Fuck the system
Fuck the system
You're talking sir?
Well I ain't listenin'
Fuck the department
Fuck the minister
The prognosis is brainwashing
The consequence sinister
Fuck the principal
Fuck the teachers
Fuck the schools
Fuck the preachers
The staff are zombies
The students are crazy
Admin's on dope
The principal's lazy
Fuck the system
Fuck the shit about a "smart" nation
This isn't education
It's brainwashing
Indoctrination

We live in a society that believes in "conformity"
There's people everywhere preaching radical uniformity
We hide behind the truthless lies we've told
Afraid to differ from the homogenous mould
You teach the profitability of trust funds
And the wonderful results of wars won with guns
You say to remember those who died defending our land
They died massacring, murdering, weapons in hand
You say not to forget the freedoms we're given
But you allow us to forget the corporate trap we live in
Living is about money, capital gain and the happiness it brings
Success is measured by flashy cars, mansions and expensive things
Your mistress is money; your love is for the affluent
Your obsessions will be humanity's exeunt
You teach us about the legal system
Then wonder why we break the law
You teach us the importance of preserving peace
Then you start a war
You teach us about Buddhism
Then when we convert you call us heretics
When our dying world is mentally sick
Ruled by you fucking lunatics
What the fuck is with you and your fucked up illusions of grandeur?
You mortal body will die but the epidemic, your disease, will endure

Fuck the system
Fuck the system
You're talking sir?
Well I ain't listenin'
Fuck the department
Fuck the minister
The prognosis is brainwashing
The consequence sinister
Fuck the principal
Fuck the teachers
Fuck the schools
Fuck the preachers
The staff are zombies
The students are crazy
Admin's on dope
The principal's lazy
Fuck the system
Fuck the shit about a "smart" nation
This isn't education
It's a capitalist
Political
Indoctrination
This isn't education
It's a fucking indoctrination
