They want us to live like this
Separated at birth
Distracted by a virtual life
That tells you what we're worth
The man ain't just white no more
That's not enough control
He don't want us to talk like this
So just do as you're told
You gotta do as you are told

Just do as you are told
You gotta do as you told
We're all under control
Just do as you are told

We need to be more than a crowd
More than society
In separate but equal corrals
Like herds of sheep
We need to be special souls
Fulfilling higher roles
Not hearts and minds on the auction block
Being bought and sold
If we just do as we are told

Just do as you are told
If we just do as we are told
They've got us all under control
I say yeah God is in control

Sometimes

You gotta look yourself right in the eye and say...
Do As You're Told
