lyrics

THE HYPOCRACY OF AUTHORITY

They demand that the people be disarmed
All the while surrounded by armed guards
They get rich from insider info
Do what they do and off to jail you go

They say gold is a barbarous relic
Don’t look now, but I think the dollar’s sick
They plan our lives to the smallest fraction
But forget about the force of human action

It’s a welfare-warfare state
With a populace sedate
But I have hope I have to say
‘Cause more awaken every day

So get off your boredom binge
And come join the lunatic fringe

The hypocrisy of authority
Such a sight to see, what futility!
The super successful societies
Have always been the ones with liberty

The hypocrisy of authority
Such a sight to see, what futility!
The super successful societies
Have always been the ones with liberty

They turn truths into conspiracies
I call them facts but they call them theories
Their plans may hurt or they may be so tame
Throughout it all you know the planners are the same

They want control, they want to watch our every move
Get out of line, you’ll have your innocence to prove
They get their votes through handouts and deceit
They’ll come undone through their own fatal conceit

The hypocrisy of authority
Such a sight to see, what futility!
The super successful societies
Have always been the ones with liberty

The hypocrisy of authority
Such a sight to see, what futility!
The super successful societies
Have always been the ones with liberty
