Given a chip, track your every move Fight the technology The new info law, who could disapprove? Fight the technology The phones, television, what's the master plan? Fight the technology Can't be fooled by a video overscan They tried to put it past you more than once before Standing on the doorstep of a third world war Feel the time slipping, want to freeze the day But take a look around you, you don't have a say Power in your veins can you feel the connection? Fight the technology Guarantee against a real insurrection Fight the technology Gone are the days of individual cause Fight the technology Embrace it but don't blame it on fidelity loss Fight the technology Life of convenience through the days with ease Fight the technology Slave to the screen of the quantum degree Fight the technology Masters of the lab, on your shoulders they stand Fight the technology Feel your brain dance to the circuit's command They tried to put it past you more than once before Looking through a doorway to a third world war Feel the time slipping, want to freeze the day But take a look around you, you don't have a say

I didn’t know it then but I can see it now I was waiting for a sound Searching for something that would fill my heart with joy No use for pop stars that abound And then it struck me, the words had reached my ears Never heard anyone that sounded so sincere I still remember The way they sang that song, oh we could sing along I still remember Oh play it fast and loud, say the voices in the crowd Those words were coming from another place and time Heartfelt with passion all the way Voice of a generation drilled into my brain Long for the sound of yesterday And then it struck me, the words had reached my ears Never heard anyone that sounded so sincere I still remember The way they sang that song, oh we could sing along I still remember Oh play it fast and loud, say the voices in the crowd I still remember The way they sang that song, oh we could sing along I still remember Oh play it fast and loud, for the kids out in the crowd And when I listen to those songs again today Can’t wipe the smile from my face I wouldn’t trade those times for anything at all Memories like that can’t be replaced I know this is the way my life is supposed to be I’ve got the music and the music has me

There’s no more room in hell It’s time to take a look around The world’s gone cold and grey When evil rears its ugly head The living are its prey They stalk around your cities And they stagger in the streets They’re scratching at your windows And they leave you no retreat And when the night has fallen your life is on the line And do you have the will to fight this rotten crime And when their vicious claws come tearing at your throat You’d best prepare, it’s time to go They’re filling up the avenues And starving in the streets They’re looking for a mind alone To make a meal complete A rotten smell pervades the land There’s fire in their eyes You’ve got to run to stand a chance The living they despise So load up your guns Because you’re really going to need them And let slip the dogs of war And watch your step Or you’re really going to join them Become one of them

They’re making millions off of songs they didn’t write Daylight fades for the honest band Who will be the next pop star forgotten overnight How did they get the upper hand? The music is in an awful state Can’t contain my radio hate So what now, it’s much too late I’ve got an appetite that you can’t sate Can’t contain my radio hate It’s everywhere I can’t escape Tell them to stuff their guile and just give them a sneer 'Cause it’s the truth they can’t conceal Look to yourself, ignite a passion so sincere Get out there and make something real

Unknown, who pulls the strings Your wonder why the world turned out this way Follow a scripted life of pain Eyes straight ahead and you’d best watch what you say Keep your head low, they’ll never suspect Just have another drink and a Victory Cigarette Bow down before the grim machine What can you do? He longs for a life he’s never seen Lie detected, and rejected Is it real or is it a dream? He doesn’t need an explanation He doesn’t want to know what’s true And when he finds that life’s frustration The killer thought he can’t undo Despise the way they look at you They’re in your head and they’re watching all the time Comply and you’ll make it through You know you’re right or is it just thought crime? Keep your mind running, never forget Just have another drink and a Victory Cigarette Ingrained since your early days What can you do? He longs for a life he’s never seen Lie detected, and rejected Just tell me who’s it going to be? Deny the vile killers’ plan This mockery of reason just can’t last Extol the hidden truth of man Listen for the bells of ages past Hold your head high, truth to protect Time is running out and closer come the rats Break down and they have you now What can you do? He longs for a life he’s never seen Lie detected, and rejected Speak up now; who’s it going to be? Not me They always shoot you in the back of the neck I don’t care down with big brother

Defy, deny Stand tall while you’re wading through the lies And proudly marching to your fate Unknown, alone But now all reticence is gone You’ll never die if you create I don’t care what the others might say I know how I feel when I get up and play Anything less is just a mockery I hope that you will see the day What we got isn’t here to stay Now’s the time to live it while you can Replaced, disgraced Open mind, find the freedom to embrace So just shrug off your misery Don’t waste your time A single second hated is a crime So make a moment to remember

They make you question what is really wrong and right They force you to believe by threatening your life I won’t concede to mystic superstition There’s no reprieve from questions in my mind And I won’t waste another second of my time Every day they do destroy my prized reality So many lives are lost to the name of what they’ll never see The truth is true no matter what your wishes Can’t dodge the real, know it in your mind And I won’t waste another second of my time I’ll never give up, I’ll never give in This is my life; I’m in it to win I’ll never atone for righteous ideals My life is my own, I mean it for real They make you question what is really wrong and right They force you to believe by threatening your life This causeless fear, gone on for generations I can’t relent until logic is enshrined And I won’t waste another second of my time And I will never surrender my mind I’ll never give up, I’ll never give in This is my life; I’m in it to win I’ll never atone for righteous ideals My life is my own, I mean it for real I’ll never give up, I won’t let it be This is my life; I’m in it for me

Wallow in squalor all your days Best love thy neighbor the wise man says Now left with empty mind and gut No hope of future, locked into this rut So when the world takes over and tries to pull you down And all you want to scream is – Dead, dead, better off dead But when those demons haunt you, it’s time to put it right Stand tall and shout This is my one chance at good life and happiness Won’t settle, because I want more Done wasting my time and won’t tell myself another lie Won’t leave this world without a fight But still that choice is yours to make Your very being, your life is at stake You’re terrified to know the truth You’ve got to find the joy lost in youth
