Orwell was right

Welcome to this debauchery Welcome to modern life's misery Welcome to your 80 hour work week, getting used to getting no sleep Welcome to complete surveillance, treason equals a life sentence Welcome to this brave new world One shepherd leading his heard

Our world has been commercialised, 2525 has arrived
And you actually believe you are free?
You're just as free as they want you to be
With every advert that you see, a Lobby determines your consumption Infiltrates your mind Capitalisms soldier, subconsciously

Human rights? You have none! Immigrate? Good Bye, Son! Vote that counts? Go buy one! Equal rights? Nice try, Hun!

Please do untie this gag, As i'm trying to speak! It's bloody hard to move freely with this rope around my feet! Seems every time I raise my voice, there's no one there to listen! So much for free speech under your jurisdiction!

Verse 3:
GCHQ or NSA? Their watchful eye on us today?
When your life's become an online fingerprint,
eternalised with tainted ink
Young minds are being moulded by the transcendental hand of state A grave new world we do live in It's 1984, and we're too late.
