Metadata (We're Watching You)
Copyright © 2017 by Rob Roper

We're watching you, watching everything you do
We're watching you, it's for your own good
We know what you like
We know what you don't
We know where you go
We know how you vote
We're watching you

Privacy is dead, freeedom long gone
if you've done nothing wrong, then just go along
Don't you see?
Both parties agree
It's what we need
to keep us all free
We're watching you

There once was a man, who ran off with the plan
but you didn't understand, so now he's living in a... cold land.
and now he's fading out
we got the news blacked out
one less boy scout
who stuck his neck out
...for you

Hitler, Hoover, Stalin, in their wildest dreams
could never have imagined, such a beautiful scheme
So hang onto your phone
Take it everywhere you go
'cause that's how we know
what we need to know
We're watching you
watching everything you do.

We're watching you
It's for your own good

Don't worry
It's just...
