Break the Chain!


The lyrics of Break the Chain were published in the May 1996 issue of Optionality Magazine, in which also the article Break the Chain! appeared. The song and the article picture the Government as a chain inside people's heads, while the article also focuses specifically on homeschooling.

It took so many thousands of years of horror
for the cause of horror to be revealed;
it took so many thousands of years of terror
for terror to reveal its name.

It took many years of madness;
it took many years of pain;
it took many years of sadness
before we could break the chain.

I walked down the road and I saw a sign,
what it said sent a shiver down my spine;
it said: "I command you to walk in line,
because everything you see and hear is mine;
you must do what I say or you'll get a fine;
I am your master by design!"

So many battles have been fought
about what's here and what's abroad . .
aha . . ah ah, ah;
and each government sought
to own each and every thought . .
aha . . ah ah, ah;
schools had to be bought,
kids had to applaud . .
aha . . ah ah, ah;
(but) if there's a lesson to be taught
it's that science is a fraud . .
aha . . ah ah, ah.

It took many years of madness;
it took many years of pain;
it took many years of sadness
before we could break the chain.

After so many thousands of years of sadness,
the Government is about to fade away;
after so many thousands of years of madness,
the Government is becoming irrelevant.

It took many years of madness;
it took many years of pain;
it took many years of sadness
before we could break the chain.
