We want your soul

I am free and forever will be.





Your cellphone, your wallet, your time, your ideas

no barcode, no party, no ID, no beers;

Your bankcard, your licence, your thoughts, your fears

no simcard, no disco, no photo, not here.


Your blood, your sweat, your passions, your regrets,

your profits, your time off, your fashions, your sex;

your pills, your grass, your tits, your ass;

your laughs, your balls,

We want it all.


We want your soul x 3

(in background: your cash, your house, your phone, your life, your cash, your house, your phone, your life)


Tell us your habits, your fads, your fears

give us your address, your shoe size, your years

your digits, your plans, your number, your eyes

your schedule, your desktop, your details, your life.


Show us your children, your photos, your home.

Here, take credit, take insurance, take a loan.

Het a job, get a pension, get a haircut, get a suit

Play the lottery, play football, play the field, snort some toot.


We'll show you shrinks, we'll show you spooks

we'll buy you drinks, throw away your books

We'll sell you crap, we'll charge you tax

Wanna buy big guns? we'll front the cash.


we want your soul x 5

(in bg: your cash, your house, your phone, your life, your cash, your house, your phone, your life)


Your thoughts, your emotions, your love, your dreams

your cheque book, your essence, your sweat, your screams

your security, your sobriety, your innocence, your society

your self, your place, your distance, your space.


[Bill Hicks:] Go back to bed America,

Your government is in control again

Here watch this -- shut up.

You are free to do as we tell you

You are free to do as we tell you

[/Bill]


We want your soul


Here's boy bands, here's Mackers, here's Britney, here's Cola

here's pizza, here's TV, here's some rock and some roller

Watch commercials, more commercials, watch Jerry, not Oprah

Buy a better life from the comfort of your sofa

Here's popcorn, here's magazines, here's milkshake, here's blue jeans

here's padded bras, here's armpit wax, here's football shirts, here's baseball caps

here's live talk shows, here's video games, here's Cola lite, here's ten more lanes

here's filter tips, here's collagen lips, here's all night malls, here's plastic hips


We want your soul x 5

(in background: your cash, your house, your phone, your life, your cash, your house, your phone, your life)

your soul (echo)


[Bill Hicks:] Go back to bed America,

Your government is in control again

Here, here’s American Gladiators

watch this, shut up

go back to bed America


Here's American Gladiators, here's 56 channels of it

watch these pituitary retards bang their fuckin' skulls together

and congratulate you on living in the land of freedom

Here you go America

You are free to do as we tell you

You are free to do as we tell you

[/Bill Hicks]


we want your soul x 8

we want your soul x 8

(in background: your cash, your house, your phone, your life, your cash, your house, your phone, your life)


No rookies, no stray, no drop-outs, no gays

no lefties, no loonies, no opinions, no way

no thinkers, no teachers, no facts, no freaks

no skaters, no tweekers, no truth, no sleep.


Here's popcorn, here's magazines, here's milkshake, here's blue jeans

here's padded bras, here's armpit wax, here's football shirts, here's baseball caps

Here's very very very very very very very very long infomercials.


We want your soul x6

(in bg: your cash, your house, your phone, your life, your cash, your house, your phone, your life)

Sunt si la noi, intr-un forma sau alta. Nimeni nu scapa de consumerism.
