​Surveillance State

This song is by Sirus and appears on the album Satellite Empire (2015).

Priests, sheikhs, politicians
People of power so called elite
Concrete high-rise institutions
Corporate strength to spin deceit
There's a place where they all gather
A place set aside all nice and neat
Inside networks on the pipeline
Where uncle sam has a front row seat

How can you fall asleep, when the world's on fire
How can you fall asleep, under a thousand eyes
As they're watching you and everything you desire
How can you rest beneath these satellites

Every step, every step you take
They'll be there, wide awake
Unblinking eyes of endless grey
This is our surveillance state

Every day, every call you make
They'll be there, to run a trace
Every number, every face
This is our surveillance state

Every day, every day you face
Try to push try to stay awake
Are you live or are you safe
This is our surveillance state

How can you fall asleep, when the world's on fire
How can you turn your back and just deny
That they're listening when you're burning up the wires
How can you rest beneath these satellites
