Everyone is saying what to do what to think,
And when you ask permission when you feel you what to blink.
First look left and then look right and now you look straight ahead,make sure and take and warning of every word we've said.
Now you lay you down to sleep make sure and get some rest,tomorrow is another day and you must pass the test.Don't try and think too different.Now what we say is best,listen little man you're not better than the rest.
Don't lay beside the wayside all around the road. We've set,smile and look happy fool or we'll throw you in the wet.
Now if you learn your lesson well and step upon the line,save your breath until forever we should get along just fine.
We'll bend your heart until it breaks make sure you feel no pain,we'll be the one to crush you and give you to the rain.
But now you want to run away.Oh can I see you run,
Run across the frozen air try resting on the sun.
And if you feel it burn you don't yell out in pain,or wish you had a velvet sponge full of soothing rain.
So let's have that stiff upper lip now take a long deep breath,close your ears you cannot hear the rules are all preset.
You thought we were illusions but we meant the word we said,we're in command,you tiny fly, we'll crush you till you're dead.
