Ignoring chances of sorrow

To get back at tomorrow

Expected so can't afford

To get bored

The anticipation

It blinds us wander from station

Nomadic blind eye worn

'Til we're born

...

Confusion can stay there

Target outside the crosshair

Public fall down

Are you sorry now?

Subtly baited social networks

Catch the paranoids and introverts

Cast your nets

To the castanets

...

Are we free now?

Chained and paroled

Are we free yet?

Contained and controlled

Are we free here?

Benefit tax widow

Are we free at all?

I don't think so

...

Corrupted attempts at control

Tear piece by piece at the soul

Through the rotting hide

See you're dead inside

Try to censor the six-string

Strip the talent to mainstream

'Til all is sinew and bone

Can't stand alone

...

Believing to dictate the powers

Even within the final hours

Stacked up pride then it fell

It quelled.

Armies marched out from their trenches

All-seeing eye rolls and it flinches

Predicts the light and turns away

Missing the dawn of a new day

...

Are we free now?

Chained and paroled

Are we free yet?

Contained and controlled

Are we free here?

Benefit tax widow

Are we free at all?

I don't think so
