Sweatshop Union - Truman Show lyrics

Deceit and denial
What you're looking for can't be found
Believe me, child
No bookstore can help you now
It doesn't have to be loud
Or happen to be up in your face
Most of the time won't even notice half the bullshit in the place
All the bad news it's in your homes, your classrooms and malls
And now a quick passage y'all,
That I picked up in a bathroom stall

Save the music,
Erase the evil,
Save the children,
Save the people,
Save the trees,
Nature's wealth,
Save the world,
Save yourself

Better safe than sorry,
Better late than never
Want to get the props,
Better make the effort,
Don't fall in love with the pinup queen
Stand right, walk left, don't swim upstream
A to the E, I, O, U
Sometimes it's Y if the I won't do
Press 1 for blame,
Press 2 for proof,
But you wouldn't call this number if you knew the truth

We think that we see,
But we don't see the half
We think that we've learned,
But we can't do the math
We think that we know,
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go

We've gotta cut the bullshit
And show the proof
Rip the tree out of the ground
And expose the roots
'Cos the people haven't found
That we wont improve
Shit they keep us held down
As the chosen few
Just sit, get rich,
While we're going through
Just 9-5 slaves labour for corporate fools
And try to deny they distort the rules
Inside our minds build cages that force the youth
In the schools have been trained to ignore the truth,
About the nature of the threat that approaches you,
Before you take another test,
Know the joke's on you,
They only gave you the textbooks to mold your views
Having your soul confused
Some people don't believe they got a soul lose
Runnin' around chasin' after golden shoes
Livin their whole lives doin what they told to do.

If I only knew what the way was
What would I do?
If you knew what you knew could save us,
Would you try to?
Cause we're living in the Truman Show
There's a limit to what you can know
Shit it's different than what you've been told
You've been sold second hand human souls

We think that we see,
When we don't see the half
We think that we've learned,
But we can't do the math
We think that we know,
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go

We think that we see,
When we don't see the half
We think that we've learned,
But we can't do the math
We think that we know,
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go
