This privilege, this right, this freedom to speak
Just another pacifier meant to keep
us quiet. We all know, noun before verb
But talking ain’t the same as being heard
“We can avoid history.
We never make the same mistakes.
Running fast and for what? There's no goal
The finish line keeps moving and we buy what we're told
Are you a cog if they shaped the machine around you?
Hate to think - what’s the grease that keeps it running smooth?
