lyrics

Liquidate the people!
(brainwash, brainwash)
Take away their memory…
(brainwash, brainwash)
Destroy their books!
(brainwash, brainwash)
Invent a new history
Make them forget!
(brainwash, brainwash)
Take their culture in thievery…
(brainwash, brainwash)
Let their language die – a natural death

Brainwash the people with liquor and beer
Brainwash the people with politics and fear
Brainwash the people with religion
Brainwash the people with superstition

Governments are mafias!
(brainwash, brainwash)
Of organized forgetting…
(brainwash, brainwash)
To kill off a culture…
(brainwash, brainwash)
There’s no need for bloodletting
Give the people choice –
(brainwash, brainwash)
They relax and sit back
(brainwash, brainwash)
They forget they have a voice…
(brainwash, brainwash)
Their futures are black

Brainwash the people with liquor and beer
Brainwash the people with politics and fear
Brainwash the people with religion
Brainwash th e people with superstition
Brainwash the people with capitalism
Brainwash the people with communism
Brainwash the people with autocracy
Brainwash the people with democracy

My mind is cycling through a brainwash
Soap! Rinse! Repeat!
Mushing my brains into thick white slosh
Soap! Rinse! Repeat!

The system is designed –
(brainwash, brainwash)
To allow for bravery!
(brainwash, brainwash)
You can try to protest…
(brainwash, brainwash)
But it’s technological slavery
The system is designed –
(brainwash, brainwash)
To maintain control!
(brainwash, brainwash)
Change can happen slowly…
(brainwash, brainwash)
But you’ve lost your soul!

I’m navigating the innards of your Kafkaesque nightmare
(I think the government pays to use my brain as a timeshare!)
I think I’ll have another beer…
(It does help to lessen the strength of that healthy dose of fear)
I feel like I’m more a part of this system than of the earth!
(Well, you have had a social security number since birth)
It’s more important to conform than to achieve…
I’m free, yet I believe!

My mind is cycling through a brainwash
Soap! Rinse! Repeat!
Mushing my brains into thick white slosh
Soap! Rinse! Repeat!
