lyrics

We were all born equal
Equally arrived in this world.
Destination was unknown,
But only in the eyes of a child.
Weaned from our nature
to learn a set of rules.
Sit down, shut up and listen.
Do what you’re told.
We teach our youngest that we are all born equal
But we are separated by a thousand invisible lines
their numbers grow.

Who wrote the rules to follow?
Who marked the borders on the ground?
Are we defined by our gender, nation, class our colour?
Our lack of education or the money in our wallet?
This man-made splendid isolation brought us an unspoken segregation.
Take a pill when you feel sick!
Call the cops when you’re scared!
And the Leviathan is smiling but he has got no spine.
Overloaded by information this generation is still left in the dark.
