There is No Need... (Fahrenheit 451 Part 3)


“There is no need for self-expression”

First they banned them then they burn them
Dystopian futures can be just signatures away
They don’t want the masses to dwell in knowledge
They are afraid the people will seize the day

“…There is no need for creativity…”

The battery runs smoothly behind the pit
The cityscape changes with each rudiment
The firemen chase and throw books away
Setting them ablaze through every movement

“…There is no need for enlightenment…”

Their faces are full of soot and sweat
But there is a fire raging inside their hearts
No matter what the outcome may be today
They keep striving to perfect their parts
