Nowhere to run, and nothing to hide, from the government's prying eyes
Take yourself a soma holiday, and get some time away from the brain

*Welcome to 1984 Your apathy has opened up the door
Now big brother is spying on you Monitoring through an Apple II*

Take your mandatory soma injections Hope you don’t mind if we rig the elections
Freedom of speech for those approved Best shut up before your removed


I say the police are on a killing spree You say it means nothing to me
I tell you our democracy is now an oligarchy You say it means nothing to me

“Ladies & Gentlemen our lord and savior President Ronald Reagan”
“Good evening my children, remember the Gipper's got his eye on you!”

What did your SAT say about you? Oh I see you’re a delta too
Speak softly big brother is near, never mind he’s already here


Welcome to 1984, the oligarchy has pried open the door
Now the government is watching you Monitoring through your Apple II

“Don’t mind him, he’ll be taken care of”


from The Bad Plants - Nerve Damage [1982] (Album), released December 1, 1982
