THE ORWELL NIGHTMARE

Lyrics

THE ORWELL NIGHTMARE

There’s a man on the moon
With a telescope into your bedroom
There’s a man
With his ear to your wall

He’s the man locks you up
In Guantanamo, no trial, tough luck
He’s the man
Like to waterboard us all

It’s the NSA – ‘Mister USA’
It’s the IRS and the CIA
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984
It’s your Facebook post
And your Twitter feed
All the evidence they say they need
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984

There’s a man in your phone
Got your SIM card tagged
Your coordinates known
There’s a man
Watch you shopping at the mall

He’s the man with the pills
For your sex life, rotten life, urges to kill
He’s the man
Like to medicate us all

It’s the NSA – ‘Mister USA’
It’s the IRS and the CIA
It’s an Orwell Nightmare from 1984
It’s your Facebook post
And your Twitter feed
All the evidence they say they need
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984

Get that waterboard and ask you one more time
Yeah, this is how we do it now
Change your profile, tell the world that you’ve been lying
Make you the enemy somehow

There’s a man, wants you scared
That the violence might erupt out there
There’s a man
Moving up as you move down

He’s the man plants the news
‘Bout the Christians, Muslims, Tamils and Jews
He’s the man
Driving freedom underground

It’s the NSA – ‘Mister USA’
It’s the IRS and the CIA
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984
It’s your Facebook post
And your Twitter feed
All the evidence they say they need
It’s the Orwell Nightmare of 1984
