Five Iron Frenzy — Mind For Treason lyrics

I want to see
All minds set free
Like slaves to their deaths
They pledge their liberty

Like awls through their ears
Nailed to a post
They sold their souls to the things they loved most
Now they accuse

My mind is closed
I've stood on their shoes
That's why I chose, Freedom
You've got words, clever jargon

Self-support, what a bargain
You tell me my God is dead
You hate a book you've never read
Telling me I'm pushing you

Who's world is this,
Who pushes who?
We've had to watch your television
Subject to your decisions

We've read yours books
And filled your schools
You burned the truth
With hate for fuel

You calculate your lack of reason
I hate this place
Call it treason
Mind for Treason

Force-feeding lies
But calling it freedom
Masking the truth to hide your dismay
Turn a blind eye to the death and decay

But I will rebel
It's treason I choose
You can die by yourself
But I will refuse

A word of truth, to worlds of fiction
I'd like to challenge your depiction
Of your soul and your salvation
I'd like to shake you from stagnation

You take the nail and drive it through
Your ear to show allegiance to
Your god the thing that you love most
Yourself

Am I coming close?
Blind to see your own extinction
Truth and lies have no distinction
Shackled slaves must drop their chains

Or slaves will serve themselves in vain
