The eye sees it all
You need a wake-up call
We should not sacrifice our privacy
in exchange for imaginary safety

It is just an excuse
to control, to abuse
Cameras in every street
check where and when we meet

As long as you stay in line
most of the time you will be fine
It is only to prevent
the mob turning over the establishment
Maybe you say “I have nothing to hide”
but are you really ok with it
to be followed every stride?

There will be no more revolution
we can all go to sleep
This is just a smarter version of the final solution
we won’t die, just became sheep
