about

On a daily basis we are being bombarded by advertising from all directions. The media is filled with marketing doing its best to sell us stuff we don’t need. They take beautiful, meaningful things like love, compassion, family, contentment and happiness and they use those feelings to convince us to buy their products. They ‘fake every dance of every dream the real can see,’ and it is NOT ok with me.

lyrics

You expected me to agree
I see you thought I’d comply
‘Cos you’ve compiled your facts
Through years of careful research
The facts should always comply
They never lie

You fake every dance
Of every dream the real can see
You rearrange, ‘til the suit fits but not me

You will take
You will take
Everything
Everything

There’s nothing here to say
Except I don’t see things your way
‘Cos what you say’s got no sense
There’s nothing like a heart I can feel beating in this
Nothing like a heart at all…it’s a mechanical jaw
It’s eating up everything I see
There’s nothing left here but the thought of me

You will take
You will take
Everything
Everything

Don’t try
Don’t you even try
Don’t try
I’m right here
