Taken Hostage to The Biggest Safe in the World

I have been imprisoned
Taken hostage for the lack of love
Had a gun held at my skull
Been thrown in a cell
where the sewage pipes played shitty tunes
and the rats floated with ease
waiting and watching for me
to give in or catch a disease and die
Dead or alive
Rats figure Its only a matter of waiting
and time

I have been imprisoned
for more years than
anyone can count

I have been locked up with no window
Its called the mushroom cell dark and dank
I spent many a month living in this hole
I have lived in fear
I have been fearful to live
I have been kicked on spat on pissed on shit on pulled apart and put back together
and i never ever spoke a word or cried a tear
the only thing I did was wish to be loved
to be thought of as dear to be free from my un- life of unfree

To finally find a way out of my prison n
to finally be living in within the system
To conform and do what you have been told you been missing
Is a scary thing indeed
for this is what you are told - If and when you are to be free
Or find a loop hole which was to be my means
to the the other side
with a key to be free to life

To suddenly realise - see with your own eyes
How many are living in fear without steel bars
How many do time and don't know they're living this lie
How many then stand up and cheer for the kill
Celebrate death like its real fucking chill
Give up the rights of others for spite
Dob in a brother over a fight
Take out a sister and turn on your mother's
Kick out the fathers for fucking with lovers

     And all the time - The guards watch on
as concrete sets and keeps growing miles n miles long
and the boys still - are going to wars - no one questioning this flaw
Well not near loud enough to make others stand up and take the floor
Cuz mumbles don't do it  - and demonstrations are ignored
       And the food!  The food thats being poisoned - We know this Yet
We shop for more and more
Yes I know what bars are I also know a cell when Im in one
I've been in many and this is just one more
This ones only bigger
To fit the bigger hoard
Most the time
like its called inside - You hang out in the yard
You've all got your own cliques
all suspicious racist bigots greenies newbies dogooders drug pushers and drugie's junkies suits and blues
dogs and fresh meat from another street moving in - moving out - moving on
there is no different out from in
Its just a matter of time
and how you see yourself doing it
Either conform or get informed or get Informed On
I was never let out - I've always been in
This is the main stream of time
The main stream in life
Most of the time
you head back home
home to your cells
Its a place you feel safest no matter what the time

Every now and again your reminded
You hear of breaks or people being killed
in your cell or on the street
You know deep down in side
Your not as safe as you think
You also know the system don't give a shit
The system has got us good and tight
when your let out from in
Your just back behind the other side
the steel bars didn't go anywhere - they're still there
The razor wires been cosmetically changed
its now cameras and security checks of x-rays and dog sniffs Cops doing their checks
so the system can rest
Lazers and bullets are what comes next
with the guise of the care takers protection protector protective net
Really its just a way of keeping us all conformed
not informed

Oops regretfully we made a mistake - LOOK at Poor ole granny
lazered n filmed Six on all the news
DON"T aSk questions Granny... and Yes she was ..
really a granny - a sweet ole granny
Not a big bad rock spider Moving in Next to you
      Using head cases such as rock spiders rapist and terrorist Keep us at bay
Drug addicts dealers & miscellaneous efforts of breaking the peace
are the lollies to keep you law abiding citizens wanting the chase
for - Those who dare to question
Immediately will be looked upon with intent
So you wont see any body rushing to anyones defence
Yes we think we are being moral about this ~ we are being humane
playing this stupid systems game
its just the biggest pokies on earth

Now we just turn our own key
and lock ourselves in

Keeping the world safe from ourselves ..
