Martin Luther… told a king of kings to go to hell

ML King Junior… took a dream to a jail cell
Hero worship… shows you’re a loyal rebel
When we tell you how to believe you should be
A shell
on the outside protects the interior                      Hiding the secrets of the sensitive material
Don’t cry, Don’t shake, Don’t shout with rage     We train you what emotions to shut down in a cage
We are the priesthood of cultural presumptions           We teach in your classrooms and program your media
We manage our human resources through influence   of perception and action and we know what we’re doing
But you don’t, cause you won’t tolerate the truth                    You are so easily disturbed to react with ridicule
toward anything frightening to your pretentious loyalty     You’re just a terrified soldier in our army

So line up now and stand at attention                          Pay your taxes on time and campaign for the election
of the side of the coin that you like facing up           cause our candidate always wins if each of them is our puppet
Martin Luther… told a king of kings to go to hell
ML King Junior… took a dream to a jail cell
Hero worship… shows you’re a loyal rebel
When we tell you how to believe you should be
A bell
is the shape of the curve of our system                        the herd in the middle is defined by extremism
The left wing and right wing both end in militants   but moderates are the common target of their violence

Each wing says the other is how it shouldn’t be         (Which wing is how it says the other shouldn’t be?)
Caught in the crossfire of coercion and confusion,   the mainstream flows downhill into the sea
Numb and blind and in a slow panic                                    the sheeple march to the drum of the man that
tells them what is safe and tells them what is danger   Our doctors spread our doctrine as the licensed agents
of the state- indoctrination is the root of diagnosis      we name the demon who possesses your neurosis
We create addicts ’cause dependency is loyalty             and customer loyalty is the root of our mafia’s monopoly

Martin Luther… told a king of kings to go to hell
ML King Junior… took a dream to a jail cell
Hero worship… shows you’re a loyal rebel
When we tell you how to believe you should be
a sell out
Martin Luther… told a king of kings to go to hell
ML King Junior… took a dream to a jail cell
Hero worship… shows you’re a loyal rebel
When we tell you how to believe you should be
Heroes!
