Lyrics: the New World Oz (NWO)

The New World Oz
 
Welcome to your world
You’ll want to know the rules here
so first you’ll learn our words
and how we give them meanings
 
we train you how to speak
we train you how to think
we train you how to breathe
we train you how to dream
we teach you what should be
to blind you to everything
that is not what should be
so, at most, you’ll reject it with fury
 
we teach you what to protest
we teach you what to resist
and to condemn us
while you focus on our plan to form your life against
 
worship our evil with your attention
think of it always but call that prevention
you are the special agent of our creation
new scandal new drama new media sensation
 
we tell you what is wrong
we tell you what not to do
our monopoly is words
your world plays by our rules
 
we tell you what is wrong with you
we tell you what not to do
our monopoly is words
your world plays by our rules
  
we hide truth in plain sight
right behind your closed eyes
like water to a fish
it’s what you may never notice
 
our system is transfer
by divert and conquer
you borrow our credit
and we take your retirement
 
your real estate equity slips through your grasp
your stock market holdings suddenly collapse
even gold and silver all deflate in this crash
cuz our organized violence is what gives power to cash
not ink on paper
are you really that naive
now it’s even electronic, though some say it should not be 
ha!
listen to the ex-millionaires plead with the deputies
“please do not take the bank’s mansion from me”
 
fools… do just what we taught them to: rebel
so they’re surprised but proud and then exhaust themselves
“say it ain’t so, Joe” and “make the world a better place”
but the world isn’t a problem… till we relate to it that way 
 
“it shouldn’t be like this, it should be more, better, different
We should be heroes, yet we’re convinced that we’re victims”
and that my friends is the design and operation of the system
what you resist, persists
naming evil is our wisdom
 
 
we tell you what is wrong
we tell you what not to do
our monopoly is words
your world plays by our rules
 
we tell you what is wrong with you
we tell you what not to do
our monopoly is words
your world plays by our rules
 
 
worship our tantrums
believe in our saviors
we put them on TV
to promise you favors
 
support them
elect them
die for them
even kill
 
still we’re gonna take your whole farm
and your little dog, too 
 
riddles: which one’s named gulch
like as in a great depression?
didn’t the crowned heads of Europe
teach you their lesson?
 
the wicked wizard of ounce
paved the streets with gold
while Elton John sang
it’s a good buy and hold
this yellow brick road
well, maybe except in a Kansas tornado
 
so, when the winds of change start to blow
just point your sails where you wish to go
or, when the winds of change start to blow
don’t point your sails where you don’t wish to go
it’s your choice
 
But whatever you do please pay no attention
to the man behind the next depression
he’s the one pulling levers in a voting booth
and signing a mortgage against the future of truth
he’s doing just as we programmed him
he’s fanatically faithful to the counter-revolution
 
 
we tell you what is wrong
we tell you what not to do
our monopoly is doublespeak
your world plays by our rules
 
we tell you what is wrong with life
we tell you what not to do
our monopoly is doublethink
the brave new world is Oz
