Let us censor their minds—tell them what to think, tell them what to dream, tell them what to be

 

We’ll stifle their ambitions, and keep them well contained; we’ll strip them to the bone, then throw what’s left away

 

They’re the parts we use for spare when the old ones are rusted, stiff; they’re the lubricant in our machines, and must be frequently drained for oil

 

Let us veil their eyes—make them see what isn’t so, make them accept our grand design, make them have faith in all we show

 

We’ll sketch out a pattern for life, and they’ll cut each other down; they’ll conform into the picture, and be bought for a bargain price

 

Let us stop their ears—fill them with speculation, pour through them filtered truths, and soothe them with crude lullabies

 

We’ll say nothing they need to hear, and promote paranoia and fear; they’ll be stuck holding all the wrong pieces, and the puzzle will never be cleared

 

Let us break all of their hearts—replace them with pebbles and stones, collect them for trinkets, for beautiful jewels

 

Enchanting…but cold to the touch

 

Let us conspire—refurbish reality, with virtual worlds of hypnotic lights

 

Let us dismantle—dehumanize, the masses, the children we’ve poisoned with lies
