The Lyrics

Well, they're brainless when it comes to how they vote
They'll buy anything the papers say
Believe anything at all

And I'm standing alone in seeing right from wrong
But sheeple's all that's left of us
We don't have very far to fall

You know now I'm not a man who's ever been
Satisfied about the society I'm in
I don't break easy, I have my pride
But everyone else is being taken for a ride

They're brainless! I don't think we have a prayer
Every time I see the news ain't fair
I go down upon my knees

And I've had it, swore I'd never compromise
They'll never convince me otherwise
I won't catch their disease

The Left and the Right are on shaky ground
Whatever they say the sheeple can't turn down
I don't wanna walk away from anyone I like
But they sure walk away from me

I have never let the ideologues control me
I work too hard to make my life my own
And I've made myself an ass to the crooks in politics
They think it's their world and you can't refuse
Anything they tell you to do

Oh, They're brainless!

(instrumental interlude)

You know it should be easy for the media
To say they're sorry or admit when they're wrong
But you tell them that and they get pissed
They don't like to be second-guessed

There's blood on their hands --
They're brainless! The sheeple have no power now
They don't want it anyhow
They were quick to let it go

Oh, they're brainless, brainless on Election Day
They make our country go to Hell
I just wish the sheeple knew

But they're brainless, They don't even wanna know
Oh, they're brainless, Oh, I'm down on my knees...
They're brainless!

Oh, I'm down on my knees...
They're brainless!

They're brainless!

2004 Michael W. McVey

Michael: I like your word "sheeple"; very descriptive. Is that your word, I've never heard it used, but I sure know what you mean.

No, the word "sheeple" isn't original, I picked it up from a fellow anti-corruption activist in Illinois (where I used to live), and I've seen it a few times on the Yahoo abortion debate boards. -- MM

Michael--your pacing is really good too, and I'm not sure Garth Brooks songs are well-known on this site, but I know this one.
Arwen - July 27, 2004 - Report this comment's a Billy Joel song. That Garth did.
