Close your eyes
and dream it all away
there is no death to see here
no terror and zip-tie arrests
on the wrists of those of us
who aren’t white

We’re lucky people
in a lucky country
if you give up your freedom
we’ll protect you
from the nightmares
you don’t want to see
like first world poverty
and millions of dollars
flown like paper aeroplanes
over foreign lands
dropping white world propaganda
in the form of bombs
killing children as innocent as our own

Close your eyes and listen
to the new agenda lullaby
it tells you what to think
what to buy
what to be
in the name of freedom
and national security

Close your eyes
and dream it all away
there is nothing see here
not anymore

We’re here to protect you
from the individualism of yourself
