Brainwashers in the churches,
brainwashers in the schools,
making worship into mockery
& students into fools,
brainwashers in the Bible Belt,
brainwashers on the coasts,
brainwashers taking dollars,
brainwashers taking votes —
you’re all the same, brainwashers!
You think you’re slick & sly,
but I can see right through your
grand disguises to
& I see how you falsify
your sympathetic cries —
it’s not hard when your crying eyes
look like a crocodile’s!
You think you’re safe, established
& looked up to by the youth?
You stick out like sore thumbs above
the flat, plain truth,
& already, your time’s run out —
you’re only still around
because what goes up
& you’re speeding toward the ground
