Hollow heads torture me with ignorance
Blind eyes harass me with darkness
Deaf ears tire me with silence
Dumb voices deafen me with gibberish
Blank minds confuse me with emptiness
and above all

With wits and ears and eyes
I have speech and strong minds,
but I remain weak and powerless
they oppress me, they torture me
they fight me, they kill me

Its fight to bring me down to silence
to darkness and gibberish to ignorance
and through brainwashing to emptiness
all night, my friends

It's a battle and I'll fight it
Ears and wits and eyes and speech
and a strong conscience
These are my weapon
and I fight to my last cell
