Is it what we hear or what we see
That makes up our communal knowledge?
Is it what we’re told or what we’re shown
That makes us believe the impossible?
Every day we’re brainwashed
Told what to like and what we must not.
We have to eat this, but definitely not that.
We must like him but, sadly, not her.
What we must do is listen to our own minds,
Decide for ourselves what to do.
Let no-one tell us how to live.
We deserve better.
Turn off the TV, don’t read the papers,
Start trusting in our instincts
We know what we like
Just as our ancestors did.
