Contrive a world in which free speech inhibits every word
Support the media, where mediocrity is heard
Finance all business ventures so that profits may be tolled
Create a government for all, where free thought is controlled
Allow for publication where it channels each ideal
Encourage secret services to see how people feel
Send armies to our neighbours to protect them from themselves
Why should we keep our unemployed just idling on the shelves?
Exploit the third world countries with our multi-national core
Bring roads, schools, industry and faith they never had before
Of course, dispose of dissidents who block democracy
Dissatisfaction keeps expression from remaining free!
Deliver God back to the West, so guilt is gone from man
Religion then can guide him while ‘the new age’ forms its plan
The world will then be perfect! A utopian escape
In which one needn’t think, feel, dream- Just be a gaping ape!
