The Lyrics

A satirical vision of a near-future AmeriKKKa under Bush's fascist TIPS* surveillance (TIPS* = Terrorism Information & Processing System, Bush's proposed neighborhood snoop program)
(instrumental intro)

They see you, they see me.
Bugged your telephone lines,
And they know where you've been.
Bush Gestapo all think they know
How to judge you by looks.
But TIPS is where tyranny starts.
They're your neighborhood spies.
Could be that cable guy...

(Chorus)
Prying eyes...
They're watching you!
They see your every move.
Prying eyes...
They're watching you.
Prying eyes...
They're watching you, watching you,
Watching you, watching you, yeah, you!

(brief instrumental break)

Obey his words - obey the Shrub,
Or you'll risk being found a "state enemy" and
To the gulag - it's off you go!
They'll be letting you in, not letting you go.
They will lie about who's held inside.
If you escape, you'll fry.

Prying eyes...
They're watching you!
They see your every move.
Prying eyes...
They're watching you.
Prying eyes...
They're watching you, watching you,
Watching you, watching you, yeah, you!

(instrumental break)

"War of Terror" is just a front, you see.
Bush's spies now enforce his theocracy.
Their snoops can wear any disguise.
They won't show you, looking at you through

Prying eyes...
They're watching you!
They see your every move.
Prying eyes...
They're watching you.
Prying eyes...
They're watching you, watching you,
Watching you, watching you, yeah, you!

(repeat chorus and fade)
