Can you smell it? It’s in the air, it’s everywhere.
Can you sense it, sending shivers down your spine?
Can you feel it, crawling up your skin like a spider let loose?
Can you see it? It’s right in front of you.
THE MINISTRY OF FEAR
They won’t tell you that they have an agenda
They won’t come to you with the whole story
They won’t let you see the truth for yourself
They won’t let you be free.
SO THEY CAGE YOU
Do you know that it’s not a death sentence?
Did you know that the majority are recovering?
Does it seem right that they ignore these facts?
Don’t they know they serve an evil purpose?
SOWING FEAR IN HEARTS
Now the people respond in kind
The selfishness within they release
With no regard for the survival of others
They clear the shops just for themselves
There’s nothing new under the sun
We’ve seen it before and we’ll see it again
The ministry of fear wrecking havoc
Serving their master, the devil himself.
