lyrics

They're always watching.
They're always watching.
They've got their eyes on you.
They've got their eyes on you.

Investigating
Anticipating
If you've done nothing wrong
Well, it won't be long.

These walls, transparent.
And it's apparent
That you can't hide from them.
There's no disguise from them.

'Cause they're always watching.
They're always watching.
They've got their eyes on you.
They've got their eyes on you.

Look into the camera, child
Let's see what fate awaits you.
Gaze into the lens, my friend.
Let justice swiftly take you.

Fret not, my darling;
It's not so alarming.
Though the mark has been made,
Your short memory will fade.

Look into the camera, child
Let's see what fate awaits you.
Gaze into the lens, my friend.
Let justice swiftly take you.
Look into the camera, child
Let's see what fate awaits you.
Gaze into the lens, my friend.
Let the system violate you.

--

They say the life we're living here
Is one worthy of a look
They say "if you've got nothing to hide
You should be an open book"

Have you read the news today?
Far and wide, the voices cry
Through the camera lens, we roam
And run, but cannot hide

--

We stand on the brink of something
The future's coming
The watchers are watching

Dividing us into warring factions
With propaganda
It's just a distraction

Why are we fighting each other
When we could fight them together?

If we don't unite against the oppressors
We'll be crushed under the pressure.

They're always watching
They're always watching
They've got their eyes on you
They've got their eyes on you

They're always watching
They're always watching
They've got their eyes on you
What are you gonna do?
