Toora, loora, loora Toora, loora, li
They hushed you, put you to sleep
You sniffed the propaganda chloroform
You slipped into the American dream
Something far from reality
Corruption decaying an economy

There aren't bullets in your brain
Shrapnel isn't piercing your spine
Your father isn't detained

And your toilet's running fine


No damage by a strained plasma double helix
No coronal mass ejection storm
So you've decided to stay misinformed
Pretend to be unique, but actually conform
With self-esteem more depleted than the ozone

 

There is a weak global sensibility with our consumerist mentality
France taunts Iran for limiting freedom, but prohibits modesty
Is this hypocrisy the meaning of modernity?
A shadow aristocracy running our society

 

We live in a Plutocracy with an ignorant peasant population
They serve a country that only serves the corporations
Armed forces fight wars benefiting ten percent of the nation
They're mislead, misused, but don't recognize the manipulation

 

If you don't step up now, you will regret it later
Because we're bound to be barren like Mars' Gusev crater
Recognize the truth like you're Mariner Nine
Open your eyes to what the rulers designed

 

Find out the truth, what actually happens to a Sudan Victim
Slaughtered over resources, but said to be African versus Muslim
As we turn a blind eye and walk off all ho-hum
Hindustan and Pakistan turn Kashmir more gruesome
Not rocket science, not asking you to catch neutrinos, quantum
Progress gets shut down or corrupted like the revolution of Harlem

 

Columbus enslaved the "New World" – now it's "New World Order"
Grains, fruits and vegetables are genetically altered
They profit off a woman's beauty, ruthlessly exploit her
Conquerors won't let indigenous walk across a fake border
If the population doesn't obey then they just Detroit her

 

Take a good look at the house of cards
The system you hold in high regard
Once you escape from the beast's jaw
You'll be stunned and notice the structure in awe
In its true entirety with all of the flaws
And you will wake up finally, because…

 

Toora, loora, loora
Toora, loora, li
They hushed you, put you to sleep
You sniffed the propaganda chloroform
You slipped into the American dream
Something far from reality
Corruption decaying an economy
