Thought Police

from A Test of Patience by Tyrants by Night



We’re headed toward a frightful time, where personal thought will no longer abide
You must believe in what is right can’t feel dissent, and no sense of pride
Our freedom of speech will no longer exist, “do as we say” the only chance to live
Obey the master, conform to our beliefs, what’s good for all, is for all to be weak

Thought police,
cleanse your mind, hide the truth, preserve the lies
cleanse your mind, nowhere to run, the all seeing eye
cleanse your mind, track your moves, and words your write
cleanse your mind, dare to offend, and we’ll end your life

Mind control the eventual goal, to remove all thought from our wretched souls
Identical minds the ultimate trend, can’t open your mouth or you’ll likely offend
Shape our words to control our thoughts, history and truth are no longer taught
Salves to the state, ministry of truth, the power to defeat and completely subdue

And there shall be a time where we erase all their minds
We’ll make them all weak and beg for their lives
To completely suppress and control all their thoughts
We’ll eliminate their souls and watch them all rot

Corporate fascists that program our minds, attacking from all angles all of the time
Silently plan what we believe, be afraid to think in the “land of the free”
Time to unplug, from what we’re told, the chance to RISE UP and reclaim our souls
Cant remain to waste away or the oppressing masters will have us as fucking slaves
