​Obedience

This song is by Martha And The Muffins and appears on the album Danseparc (1982).

This isn't the time
This isn't the place
This isn't the end
This isn't the season.
Stick to the facts
Who made the rules?
How long ago!
No rhyme or reason.
Your time is up
Please join this line
Complete this form
Time is money.
You don't conform
You don't compute
Check one box
This isn't funny.

Obedience...

I take exception to your rules
Is this life or is this school?
You say your hands are tied, invisible chains.
Take a number have a seat
This screaming phrase repeats
Repeats and repeats in my ear.
If it's money don't be late
Objections have to wait
It isn't your responsibility.
Take a number have a seat
This screaming phrase repeats
Repeats and repeats and repeats and repeats and repeats...

It's too much fun It's much too plain
They rule it's much Too much to handle.
They close our eyes Decide what's right
The naked truth Could cause a scandal.
The more they hide
The more devised Imaginations
Can't be shattered.
It's for your soul It's for your good
Your mental health's A fragile matter.

Obedience...
