about

spoken word based on text released by a student during the December 2008 riots in Greece

lyrics

Born to a world, where your opinion means shit,
Forced to quietly obey , for you're too young to exist.
As the double standard grows, you become their property
You are threatened not to question the adult supremacy

Born to a family, to perfection stereotypes,
A panopticon of social values of what they believe is right
As you try to escape his claws, flee from this reality ,
Father's ghost follows you close, blended in society.

It's the fucking state, their courts, their prisons & police
Protecting us from ourselves cause "they just can't leave in peace"
It's the doctors and the power we allowed them to possess
Infantilizing our ability to choose, to try and guess

It's them all, these fucking experts, masters and their authority
Stealing your life away from you, telling how stupid you should be.
All these vertical power structures which we all have to bend and break
Burn their foundations to the ground, rip them off inside you & me
