a bargain with the devil (the consent of the governed)

They told me here’s the way it is                 we tell you the rules

if you don’t like it                                        we’ll send you to school

they’ll teach you to fit                                 in to the system
you will have no choice                               but to call it freedom
this is your consent                                   your obedience
you’re domesticated                                    tamed, never frustrated
cause it’s what you want                            this is what you know
this is what you love                                    this is what you chose
you’re not disappointed                               you like this the most
you can’t live without it                                 you always stay close

don’t forget that there is nothing else
for someone like you, you know, someone like yourself
you can never change it’s just like you’re dead
hey you might as well just admit it- your heaven is hell
Santa’s watching close                         so you best be good              for goodness sake
Satan’s waiting too                               so don’t you be bad               or we’ll lock you up
Your wife is right next door                    all you have to do is sign       and then we’ll let you see her
Oh no we’d never lie                              we’ll even put that in writing   we promise to be honest with you
