Mentally Murdered - Napalm Death

Your aspirations, unable to stretch
Beyond the barriers of what's expected
As the free thought you were born with
Becomes externally ploluted

Lose sight of your ideals
In their brainwashing institutions
Predetermine your values
To befit your substandard existence ...
Discouraging creativity
To aim for empty ambitions

Living up to other's expectations
Takes hold of your assiduity

Mentally murdered!

The will to succeed
Overpowers the will to resist

Mentally murdered!

Always up to the mark
Set the wheels in motion
A fake sense of security
From your invariable position

Sinking in the crowd
A face minus expression
A mouth that echoes words
Recycled from tradition

Your only contentness
Is living in a lie

Mentally murdered!

Do you possess the strength
To re-create your own life?
