My Enemies & I – Lobotomy Lyrics

[Verse 1] Like a child watching puppets at a matinee
They don’t see the hand controlling every move they make
Having too much fun to see the man that’s pulling all the stings
Hiding just beyond the curtain
You’ve got freedom, you’ve got rights
But know you’re still a slave
You don’t see the hand controlling every move you make
Step in line and you’ll receive
Your worry free lobotomy
Waiting just beyond the curtain
Just beyond the curtain

[Chorus] Happy and free as they all dance on a string
Let’s turn the music up louder blocking out everything
While you help create the all-American hate
I’m not a puppet on a string
I’m not a candidate for this lobotomy

[Verse 2] It’s so much easier to laugh and look the other way
The power that be broadcast the image everything’s okay
Nobody sees that there’s a war
Happening right outside your door
They hide it just beyond the curtain
Just beyond the curtain

[Chorus] Happy and free as they all dance on a string
Let’s turn the music up louder blocking out everything
While you help create the all-American hate
I’m not a puppet on a string
I’m not a candidate for this lobotomy

[Breakdown] No strings pulling me
Yeah

[Bridge] Like a child watching puppets at a matinee
They don’t see the hand controlling every move you make
Having too much fun to see the man that’s pulling all the stings
Hiding just beyond the curtain
Just beyond the curtain

[Chorus] Happy and free as they all dance on a string
Let’s turn the music up louder blocking out everything
While you help create the all-American hate
I’m not a puppet on a string
I’m not a candidate for this lobotomy
For this lobotomy
