Barcode Puppets  © Flaviyake

 

[Verse]

Roll the dice! The master moves you right.
Their hands are not trembling
They know it’s legal gambling.

Rise above the crowd and look around.

Cause you’re way too humble
To stop any rumble.
You think you own your babe. You’re wrong.

They show their commitment
To control your infant.
They populate their puppet show

They colour blank faces

With readable data

 

[Chorus]

I don’t wanna see the day
We turn into
Barcode puppets.
I just wanna weaken my threads

Controlled by puppet masters.

I don’t wanna see the day
We turn into
Barcode puppets.
Standing in the spotlight of pain

Begging you
Weaken my control threads

 

[Verse]

Lipsync to the song of their choice
If you cannot find the
Right tune for your voice though.

Seems that only love is free. Rejoice!

With every new child

You give them a client.
They offer you a life you can’t forgo

Designing a gadget
That suits any budget.
They populate their puppet show

They read all your data
To manipulate you.

 

[Chorus]

I don’t wanna see the day
We turn into
Barcode puppets.
I just wanna weaken my threads

Controlled by puppet masters.

I don’t wanna see the day
We turn into Barcode puppets.
Standing in the spotlight of pain

Begging you

Weaken my control threads

 

[Bridge]

And I still believe
In a free speech island
That we can achieve
In the world of silence.

 

[Chorus]

I don’t wanna see the day
We turn into
Barcode puppets.
I just wanna weaken my threads

Controlled by puppet masters.

I don’t wanna see the day
We turn into
Barcode puppets.
I just wanna look in your eyes

Begging you
Weaken my control threads

 

[Outro]
The world’s a puppet show. Let’s go!
