We're in a place that's so encoded
Forced into place, injection moulded
Pushed into sectors, colour coded
Hijacking funds from the ones that voted
Numbers, limitations we're under
Future so great we can feel the thunder
I got soul but it makes me wonder
Is it any good in the world today?
Terrorists, greed, paedophiles, rape
Even in love people sell the tapes
Makes me sad, worse, drapes
Tell by them poor man sell the apes
Criminology seems so refined
When you live in a jail like state of mind
There's no bars, walls, locks
Never lights out till the fall stops

And it's gonna make me cry
Ain't nobody ever tell me why
All the people wanna do is hurt one another
But everyone you meet, y'know, that's your sister or your brother

Trapped in the world of caution
Hunger, loss, it's a mash abortion
TV shop trash terminator
Internet truth, you may learn it later
Only takes you to confirm the data
Polluted world of toxins
Media serves it topspin
Freshly delivered with a slice
When it lies precise
Depends what side, do you find it nice?
Look real close, then you find the lice
Don't take police with a lie device
People so cold that their mind is ice
The same tools that apply the rights
Enforce the wars, don't fight the cause
As the innocent blood stains all the floors

So open your door and open your mind
We've got a long way to go and there's not much time
Many rivers to cross, many mountains to climb
But if we all work together, it's gonna be just fine
Or it's gonna make me cry
Ain't nobody gonna tell me why
Tell me why all the people wanna do is hurt one another
But everyone you meet, y'know, that's your sister or your brother.

...it's gonna make me cry, it's gonna make me cry
and i wonder why, said i wonder why, it's gonna make me cry...
