lyrics

INSTILLED

YOU CLOSE MY EYES
TO ANY IDEAS BUT YOUR OWN
YOU KEEP ME DEAF
TO THE SOUND OF REVOLUTION
TIE MY HANDS
FROM ACHIEVING FREEDOM
YOU WANT MY BRAIN
TO ONLY THINK YOUR THOUGHTS

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO BREAK THE CYCLE
TALKING DRUNK AND INHALING THEIR LIES
OR ARE YOU ABSTAINING AND STAYING STUPID
EITHER WAY WE’RE STILL LEFT BEHIND

SO TELL ME HOW THEY CAN BE YOUR ACTIONS
WHEN IT’S THEIR IDEALS THAT FILL YOUR HEAD
THESE THOUGHTS ARE INSTILLED UPON US
AND WE’RE TOLD FREEDOM IS BEING LEAD

WHEN IN REALITY FREEDOM WILL ONLY COME
WHEN WE REALIZE WHO THE FUCK IS IN CONTROL
WITHOUT THEIR COOPERATION
THEIR SYSTEM WILL FALL
IT THRIVES OFF THE MISCONCEPTION
WE CAN’T SURVIVE WITHOUT THEM

WHEN WE ARE ALL INDIVIDUALS CAPABLE OF THINKING
YET WE’VE BEEN INSTILLED WITH DEPENDENCIES
AND THE MYTH THAT WE CAN’T SURVIVE WITHOUT LEADERS

HOW CAN THEY BE YOUR ACTIONS
WHEN IT’S THEIR IDEAS THAT FILL YOUR HEAD
