lyrics

Prism

"Government ought to be all outside and no inside. . . . Everybody knows that corruption thrives in secret places, and avoids public places, and we believe it a fair presumption that secrecy means impropriety." - Woodrow Wilson

unquestioned
unresolved
what you don't know enslaves you

all hail the all seeing eye
shines like a light in this sea of darkness
a false hope
a better tomorrow
preaching safety
while denying its blindness

these chains are fashioned of secrets
while they tell us that we are free
"what you don't know will never hurt you"
words, like ash, offered up as a guarantee

we created this monster
circling closer in the dark
it knows our every weakness
its talons buried in our hearts
our hands stained with ink
like the blood of the martyrs
we peal back the curtain
revealing the visage behind

no benevolent sovereign
just a self serving demon
we've fed with our hopes and our fears
