The System Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Welcome to the world, baby boy, I’ll paint you red and white and blue
The indoctrination starts as soon as you come out the womb
Pretty quick we’ll make you stupid with curriculums at school
And if the classroom doesn’t do the trick, we’ll make you watch the news
Pick your team, right or left, pick the red pill or the blue
You can vote, but even if you win, still everyone will lose
Don’t forget to buy designer because Gucci makes you cool
We prioritize material belongings over truth
Get a job that you can’t stand so you can buy some cans of food
Go overseas and die for freedom, there’s some oil we could use
Our democracy exists so that you think that you could choose
But our algorithms make you do what we want you to do
What’s the problem, you’re depressed? Society has you confused?
We got medication for you that you’ll probably abuse
Go get married to a lady who also don’t have a clue
And pump out a few babies that are just the same as you

[Chorus]
Welcome to the system, everyone’s a victim
Doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, it hates you all
Here inside the system, violence is a symptom
Fighting for what’s right, but somehow everyone is wrong
Welcome to the system, everyone’s a victim
Doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, it hates you all
Here inside the system, violence is a symptom
Fighting for what’s right, but somehow everyone is wrong

[Verse 2]
Welcome to the world, baby girl, I’ll paint you pink if that’s okay
We’ll encourage self-destruction through the music that you play
We divided all the men by tryin’ politics and race
And honestly, it’s workin’ awesome, so for you we’ll do the same
Never teachin’ you to love yourself, inject you full of hate
Objectify your sexuality then blame you for the rape
And weaponize the differences that make our men and women great
And just to screw with you, erase the genders, everyone’s the same
We’ll empower you with rights to vote and fight for equal pay
Then have the men turn into women and you’ll fight for them again
But you thought you had it figured out, but everything has changed
Welcome to the system, please enjoy your stay
Here’s a Bible and a bottle of the cheapest booze we make
Find a man who can take care of you to fill the holes we made
Buy a house and settle down, fulfill your duty, procreate
And make a couple babies who will also do the same

[Chorus]
Welcome to the system, everyone’s a victim
Doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, it hates you all
Here inside the system, violence is a symptom
Fighting for what’s right, but somehow everyone is wrong
Welcome to the system, everyone’s a victim
Doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, it hates you all
Here inside the system, violence is a symptom
Fighting for what’s right, but somehow everyone is wrong

[Bridge]
Welcome to the world, everybody, I’ma paint you black and white
I’ma make you hate each other so that everyone will fight
I’ma give you all religion, let the righteous find the light
But I will also give you science to oppose the Word of Christ
And I’ma give you borders, they’re imaginary lines
If you cross them, go to war and win when everybody dies
And I’ma give you money that you’ll value more than life
And let the one percent have everything while you fight to survive
And then I’ll give you politics, I’ll call it left and right
And while you divide yourselves, I will conquer both the sides
Can’t you see? I’m the system, my whole purpose is divide
What you choose will never matter because everything is mine

[Chorus]
Welcome to the system, everyone’s a victim
Doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, it hates you all
Here inside the system, violence is a symptom
Fighting for what’s right, but somehow everyone is wrong
Welcome to the system, everyone’s a victim
Doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, it hates you all
Here inside the system, violence is a symptom
Fighting for what’s right, but somehow everyone is wrong
Welcome to the system, everyone’s a victim
Doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, it hates you all
Here inside the system, violence is a symptom
Fighting for what’s right, but somehow everyone is wrong
