Mark Gunnery - Oh Yeah?! lyrics

They tried to get me at the highschool desk
With homework and class work and standardized tests
They we're so excited to be showing off their minds

Never gave a shit that they were paralyzing mine
They've got it all that's what they want you to think
Read between the lines you'll see the missing link
Teachers taught the platform they we're taught to teach at school
Producing little workers built to follow all the rules
They we're just preparing us to work until we die
They knew they we're destroying us but they never asked why!
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well I got it all up here
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well they think they got it all out there
They can fuck off, 'cause they ain't got me
They cannot buy my dignity
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Let me tell you that I've got it up here

Tried to get me with the magazines
And the men who wield their privilege on the movie screens
Show your strength young man, you've got a lot to go around
Teaching me the many ways to keep another down
They've got it all that's what they want you to think
Read between the lines you'll see the missing link
Breeding me to be another rapist in their cell
With the Hollywood instinct to fuck somebody's shell
Teaching me desires that I never would have felt
Saying it's ok if it's somebody else

Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well I got it all up here
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well they think they got it all out there
They can fuck off, 'cause they ain't got me
They cannot buy my dignity
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Let me tell you that I've got it up here

Tried to get me at the part-time job
It's either this or the Army, you're lucky you're alive
They we're just taking what they wanted from me
Free-market fundamentals saying everybody's free
They've got it all that's what they want you to think Read between the lines you'll see the missing link
Work your life away to barely pay for rent and food
Never see the outcome of the things that you produce
Never question why you work so hard for such shit
Or how your debts can pile up yet they get so rich

Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well I got it all up here
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well they think they got it all out there
They can fuck off, 'cause they ain't got me
They cannot buy my dignity
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Let me tell you that I've got it up here

Tried to get me with the TV news
Giving me opinions from which I have to choose
Reporting on a war that they refer to as a win
Never show the pictures of the blown up limbs
They've got it all that's what they want you to think
Read between the lines you'll see the missing link
The talking heads are out there just to get you from behind
So you stick to the standards never knew that you we're blind
You'll always be as guilty as the rest will be
If you never question anything you see on TV

Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well I got it all up here
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well they think they got it all out there
They can fuck off, 'cause they ain't got me
They cannot buy my dignity
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Let me tell you that I've got it up here

Tried to get me with Election Day
Told me all the candidate would help in some way
Never thought I'd question the legitimacy
Of systems that make profit out of poverty
They've got it all that's what they want you to think
Read between the lines you'll see the missing link
All government's are founded hoping people will behave
The power they are handed is the power that we gave
They rule the world with ease and feed us politics
Because they tell us we're not able and we fall for it
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well I got it all up here
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Well they think they got it all out there
They can fuck off, 'cause they ain't got me
They cannot buy my dignity
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Let me tell you that I've got it up here
