"Education" Through Ignorance

Enslave our bodies first
Then enslave our minds
Tell us this is right
Tell us this is all there is
It's all we know, of course
We'll believe you.

Preach to us your book-fed knowledge 
We'll take your word for it
The way you took theirs
Tell us what is right
Tell us what there is
You're all we know, of course
We'll believe you.

Judge our worth by how we obey you
Then translate us into numbers
Tell us who is right
Tell us who we are
We're all you know, of course
We'll believe you.

 

Frances is just a waning wallflower with more ideas and understandings than feet on the ground- a poetic sloth with the height and appetite of a hobbit.
