lyrics

They know you better than your mother
Closer than the closest lover
Electric prying eyes
Collecting your whole life

We’re too willing to release
Our right to basic privacies
After it’s gone it’s gone for good

If you have nothing to hide
Then you have nothing to fear
‘Till you are thought a threat
But speech is not illegal yet

Still one day you may disappear
One more name on the list
Of suspected terrorists

Run by idiots
So Goddamn stupid

They know you better than your preacher (hey)
Far more than your God (oh no)
Hovering cameras keep
Infinite data logs

We’re too willing to ignore
The power creeping through the door
And when it’s there it’s there for good

If you have nothing to hide
Then you have nothing to fear
‘Till you are thought a threat
But speech is not illegal yet

Still one day you may disappear
One more name on the list
Of proudly murdered militants

We only notice after it’s too late
When someone else is stripped down
Patted, prodded, sent to impound
We barely bat a fucking lash
Our hands bound in metal cuffs
Watching our own power break us

It happened elsewhere in the past
How quickly we forget
Assume by virtue we’re immune

Quickly, quietly, soon they will own
And every action they will know
And we will let them go
Until it’s our turn

Break free now
