FIAT HELOTRY

This fiat helotry,

Beaten down, battered and bruised,
These shackles come factory,
Satisfaction misled and abused,
Pure theatrical hierarchy
Life valued, in dollar bills,
Forged into slavery,
The strongest prisons, reside in The Hills,
Relentless sentient hijacking,

Gears of society, based on a house of cards,
A global edifice, incendiarily made of straw,
Lifetimes of servitude, to benefit the nil percent,
They hold these truths from you, guaranteed mass self-confinement,

A planets worth of labor devised on a fraud, the rat race sure runs strong,
A blow out sale, right down the street, these fucking treadmills are all the heat,
Embedded deep within the frontal lobe, imprudent strings the puppeteer behold,
Fueling the fire, beguiled desire, disjointed from humanity,
Disjointed from humanity

Hypnotized by design,
A small cabal, pulling the strings,
The media, presents a dream,
Reading the script, and spreading the meme's

Saying "Hey...shut up slaves

Look over there,
There's nothing to see here,
Now back to the hampster wheel,
You owe us your wage"

Beaten down, battered and bruised,
These shackles come factory,
Satisfaction misled and abused,
Pure theatrical hierarchy,
The dangling carrot, in front of the mule,
Following these induced rules,
This system of drudgery,
Lack of apprehending the real you,
Life valued, in dollar bills,
Forged into slavery,
The strongest prisons, reside in The Hills,
Relentless sentient hijacking,

Gears of society, based on a house of cards,
A global edifice, incendiarily made of straw,
Lifetimes of servitude, to benefit the nil percent,
They hold these truths from you, guaranteed mass self-confinement,

They hold these truths. From You.
