Closed minds

Closed minds


My hands reach out to touch you


To break a binding spell


That grips you oh! So tightly


How far my friend you've fell



So insidious and commanding, compelling you to obey


Implanting words inside your mind, the things you're meant to say.


Thinking these thoughts are yours… because this is how you think


Your eyes opened wide., and yet so easily hoodwinked.



Catch a glimmer of a chink, of light so bright it blinds


The darkness of the shadows now illumined within your mind


What you once perceived as real, now Governments lies exposed


Unfettered, unencumbered... Your liberty now imposed.


......................................................................................................................


Note to Bo-Jo:


When COBRA constricts the Capital and the civil unrest begins


You will wish you kept those ‘water-cannons’. What a different song we’ll sing


If you think that that's not happening, you had better think again


Because I share with you my vision... Anarchy will reign!
