You Owe Society Nothing

What would you like me to thank you for
A state education that opened the door
To a life of toil of struggle and pain
Bribery and corruption a one-sided game

Hold up a mirror and don't run away
Look at yourself in the cold light of day
What do you see be honest and brave
I see a manipulated contaminated slave

Go to your work and endure all the dross
Who's the bigger jerk is it you or your boss
You give back what you earn you have no choice
Don't you ever learn you're a mouth with no voice

Everything you buy includes value added tax
Even when you die you can never relax
The state is on the prowl and it wants your soul
Listen to it growl as it takes control

A state run education a so-called human right
After many years of schooling I couldn't read or write
I was thrust into this hell-hole heading for the abyss
The violence and abuse is not something I will miss

Dumping kids in day care so mum can work two jobs
Barley surviving on welfare food banks odds and sods
Selling children into slavery to pay for all the debt
Trying your best to make ends meet desperate to forget

The stupid and the ignorant are always out in force
Defending the abhorrent showing no remorse
Acting like the good guys but secretly planning fear
A ticking time bomb red alert keep away stay clear

This cesspit called society is such an evil game
It fills you with anxiety no hope depression and shame
It builds you up knocks you down hides as you give in
Human filth religion and wealth endless immoral sin

So before you give your final breath
And thanks for all the suffering
Never forget you're not human debt
You owe society nothing
