LYRICS:

Obey my word!
I am the voice of truth
Let go of ego
Embrace the system

War is peace
Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength
Love is indifference

You think your thoughts are safe?
Don’t you dare to speak your mind
Big brother’s watching you
So better stay in line

Free will is dangerous
Free thought rebellious
Free speech results in chaos
And chaos leads to crime

Give up your trifling thoughts
Do it for society
Don’t go against the current
You’ll shake their core beliefs

Tell me is it worth the pain?
Do you really want to die?
Do you think true love exists?
Or is it nothing but thoughtcrime?

Obey the system
Don’t show your distress
Or you will be put against the wall

Obey the system
I’ll be your witness
Your battle is futile after all

Obey my word!
I am the voice of truth
Forget the chaos
Embrace the system

War is peace
Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength
Love is indifference

Open your mind and let me have a look inside
No need to be afraid, unless your dare to hide
Give up your soul to my control
Or visit 101 with no parole

Obey the system
Don’t show your distress
Or you will be put against the wall

Obey the system
I’ll be your witness
Your battle is futile after all

Tell me was it worth it?
In the end you’re all the same
In the end you all comply
Give up ideals to survive

You all think you have free will
Because you think there is a choice
You all think you are so special
That somebody will hear your voice
 
Obey the system, be a slave so we are free
Wage war against each other, while we live in peace
Live in blissful ignorance, so we can be strong
Love through indifference, that’s what we want
