Is This Propaganda?


What I say is the truth
Ignore the way of others
They will never be your friends
Even though they'll call you brother
They are just using you
Trying to get inside your head
They will push you so hard
Until you drop down dead
Stay away from the promises
They feed into your mind
It won't be for your benefit
It will be for their own kind
They don't care for others
If they should stand or fall
Or face financial hardship
And have their backs against the wall
As long as they are cosy
In their big mansions and the like
Those who are not worthy
Can just take a hike
Join with us and rid the world
Of this parasitic scum
Join the march for freedom
Bang the independence drum
If this sounds like propaganda
Then I've got my point to you
Listen to all arguments
But to yourself always be true.
