about

As the bad plants near the end of our story they are asked to play a festival in New York City. this is the song they play, Something that reflects how they've changed and not changed.

lyrics

Nowhere to run, and nothing to hide
From the governments 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

Welcome to 1984
your apathy has opened up the door
now big brother is spying on you
Monitoring through an apple II

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
I say “WHO ARE THE BRAIN POLICE”

“People of America, our lord and savoir, Ronald Reagan”
“Hello my children, Remember the police are there for OUR protection”

What did your S.A.T. 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
your apathy has opened up the door
now big brother is spying on you
Monitoring through an apple II

Welcome to 1984
the oligarchy has pried open the door
now the government is watching you
Monitoring through your apple II
