Big Brother Knows

T'is the blue bird who pointed out to me

How You and I are - History

I winced & reminisced as you punched in your byes

Remotely. Casually. Out there for all eyes


Big Brother knows we'll bare our souls

And click 'Agree' when faced with a scroll

But, if He's betting that forever we'll still be playing with His dice

He'll find he's short of glass ceilings, in a world of skies


Say 'Aye' with me, 'Aye' 'For' the diary of Winston

Say 'Aye' to free minds locked up & snowed in

Toss in, instead; Oceania's loaded dice

In the holes of those who know & feign surprise


Big Brother knows we'll bare our souls

And click 'Agree' when faced with a scroll

But, if He's betting that forever we'll still be playing with His dice

He'll find He's short of glass ceilings, in a world of skies


Allow me to tell you why

He'll lose this fight

No law can be greater

Than ANY 1 Human Right.


Say 'Aye' with me, 'Aye' 'For' the diary of Winston

Say 'Aye' to free minds locked up & snowed in

Toss in instead Oceania's loaded dice

In the holes of those who know & feign surprise


Big Brother knows

Big Brother knows

Big Brother knows

Big Brother knows
