Manufacture Consent


Chorus:

Say it like that
I'm not a number
I'm a name (x 4)
say it like that I'm not a number

We've been treated like numbers
and manipulated
played like puppets
you feeling sedated
dehumanized
and we overmedicated
look into them eyes
and see what they created
fall into darkness
and it wouldn't take much
turn into something
not so easy to touch
push pull
take the hands
off the clutch
quick words turn to dust
i was trying to trust

In the name of - say it
don't speak for us
in the name of - say it
don't speak for us
In the name of the people
but we have a name
don't speak for us
it never sound the same
feel it in the gut
know from where you came
say it like that
I'm not a number
I'm a name

Life comes with strings attached
and i know that
can have you making sucker moves
staring at your cereal
eyes glazed over
tv coma
have you hating on a stranger
that you never meet
strings all over
manufacture our consent
cut them strings
yo, atleast we tried
but when you look down
them hands are tied
you feeling done by
chicken fried
caged and battered
all them tears
you cried
that was you, me
and everyone we know
not trusting who's in control
but pulled along
again for a ride
in the power structure
don't believe the hype
these old myths
kept us in line
what it like
their authorities bold
thèse hierarchies sold
out humanity cold
and we paying with our life

In the name of - say it
don't speak for us
in the name of - say it
don't speak for us
In the name of the people
but we have a name
don't speak for us
it never sound the same
feel it in the gut
know from where you came
say it like that
I'm not a number
I'm a name

Chorus

when the bottom get busy
then the top get nervous
you can tell them this number
no longer in service
cutting them strings
here's a knife
these puppet masters keep us
L for life
create the disease
create the cure
keep us conditioned
they always want more
looking for submission
we looking for a door
thats a way out
to escape an old
tired maze now

In the name of - say it
don't speak for us
in the name of - say it
don't speak for us
In the name of the people
but we have a name
don't speak for us
it never sound the same
feel it in the gut
know from where you came
say it like that
I'm not a number
I'm a name
