""" Your Enslavement """
""How dare you.""
""Now wipe that look of contentment off of your face.""
""Why aren't you wearing the clown mask you've been ordered?""
""Don’t you think for an instant that you’ll not take your medicine""
"" I’ll guarantee you this much ,that you’ll be raked across the coals and thrashed with a brine soaked strap long before the taste of that warm apple pie has crossed your precious gums""
Do you see it clearly
is it as plain as day
or as dark as night to you now
No one is allowed to be in the middle
there is no such thing as peace and harmony
You are forbidden to be centered
They can’t have it
It won’t be tolerated
You shall be punished for it
It has been abolished
Surrender or be crushed
""There's a good lad, just what every growing boy and girl needs,
down the hatch.""
""Now, give us all a great big smile.""
"" Off you go.""
all the people sing...
Do....do..do..do Da…da..da da De…de..de de don't worry be happy
