Propaganda makes me sick

Things like this in modern times are surprising. Can't people spot this phony crap for what it is?

First they put away the dealers, keep our kids safe and off the streets
Then they put away the prostitutes, keep married men cloistered at home
Then they shooed away the bums, and they beat and bashed the queers
Turned away asylum-seekers, fed us suspicions and fears
We didn't raise our voice, we didn't make a fuss
It´s funny there was no one left to notice, when they came for us

Looks like witches are in season, you better fly your flag and be aware
Of anyone who might fit the description, diversity is now our biggest fear
Now with our conversations tapped, and our differences exposed
How ya supposed to love your neighbour, with our minds and curtains closed?
We used to worry 'bout big brother
Now we got a big father and an even bigger mother


And still you believe, this aristocracy gives a fuck about you
They put the mock in democracy, and you swallowed every hook
The sad truth is, you'd rather follow the school into the net
'Cause swimming alone at sea, is not the kind of freedom that you actually want
So go back to your crib, and suck on a tit
Bask in the warmth of your diaper, you're sitting in shit
And piss, while sucking on a giant pacifier
A country of adult infants, a legion of mental midgets
A country of adult infants, a country of adult infants
All regaining their unconsciousness
—from the song Regaining Unconsciousness, by NOFX
