lyrics

You're not getting the facts
You're not getting the truth
You're not hearing the actual voices of the youth
All you're getting is a marketing tool
Props to sell us "cool"
Reasons to be a fool are fed and said
We flocked, you led

And we accept it all
No way there's no right or wrong
Unless the money's there
Then thought ain't got a prayer
Mass persuasion: fan the flames
To have freedom within the chains
It can't appear that we're aware
Of what is going on out there

The cleansed and filtered public mind is doomed
They're doomed, they're doomed
Deprived of any truth
The public is doomed

Mindwash is what's in store
You get addicted, you ask for more
Fake 'em once, then fake 'em again
Cause what they think they want, they'll get
There's a thirst for lies these days
We're mice inside their maze
Their utopic restraints are fed and said
We flocked, you led

Oh, you poor public mouth
You eat whatever's out
As long as it's on sale
You walk the traveled trail
Mass persuasion: fan the flames
To have freedom within the chains
It can't appear that we have gained
Reverse intentions of their game

about

Mischief Brew Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
