The Lyrics


When through the web you crawl
When you make that call
Shopping in the mall
You might be quite appalled
To know we're watching you


That email that you send that you send
To your long lost friend
You know you can't defend
Your marriage it might end
Cos we'll be watching you

Oh don't you see
You're on cc TV
It's just a piece cake
Every step you take

Each time you swipe your card
You'd best be on your guard
I know it seems absurd
But we hear every word
We'll be watching you

Big brothers won
He's everywhere
You know he's on your case
He's intimate with the contours of your face
You DNA and you Iris never mind your name
You know you've only got yourself to blame
All you can do is try begging on your knees

That data that we mine
That tax return you sign
We're at it all the time
It's our grand design
We'll be watching you

Oh don't you see
You're on cc TV
It's just a piece cake
Every step you take

That data that we mine
That tax return you sign
We're at it all the time
It's our grand design
We'll be watching you

Well done. Creeps me out to think about it, but I don't show it, cause you never know who might be watching.

Tricky subject, handled well, Martha. Pacing was a bit off; you seemed to squeeze too many syllables into each line for it to ring true to the OS, although I sorta picked up your rhythm as I went along. 455

Was 1984 really 21 years ago? Good message, very well delivered, Martha.

I swear one of these days there will be an ad on TV for a video of every questionable thing you've done in your life. And either you buy it for thousands of dollars or it will be aired on community cable. Great work, Martha My Dear.

Note to Peterchyd: I caught that coded message. Don't worry - I WILL send you more candid photos of those two neighborhood dogs. Stop begging.
