    Bound by chains of welfare
    The bars and prison walls
    The education system
    They claim it's the same for all
    The programming and misunderstanding
    Of our present situation and exactly what’s happening
    Leaves us asleep and oblivious to the fact
    That we’re not controlling our own lives
    Being manipulated into how to act
    The real devil isn’t red and he’s always around
    All throughout history his presence is found
    He’s followed by lies death and destruction
    Misery and poverty all surround him
    He wants us in our place and means for us to stay there
    So in our minds he implants the fear
    If you have no self-love or knowledge of you
    You’ll fall victim to his destruction too
    Educate to recreate a whole new you
    Then teach our children love our children
    So they can stand up for themselves too
