What you think you're doin?
Dont you know your place?
Don't let that company informer
see your face
Cuz he'll give that local
human resource representative
your name
And then you're gonna find out
everbody's playin' a brand new game

You'll get that patriot ax,
that presidential pinkslip required,
Your friendly neighborhood policeman
make damn sure you're fired,

Well, they'll terminate your birthright,
you ain't no citizen no more,
won't be no place for you
but through that concentration camp door

Don't you understand folks,
a new CEO's in town,
and all those department heads
we picked are bowin' down,
'cuz they've traded off
your Bill of Rights for
Jesus, jackboots and junk bonds
and your fellow stockholders
bought their "peace and safety" cons

So watch that patriot ax,
that presidential pinkslip unleashed,
grantin' every local, moral,
upright fascist wanna-be's wish
Don't get yourself accused
of conduct unbecoming a tool,
'cuz everone is subject to suspicion
who's not a damn fool
