THE WAR OF CONDITIONING
When she was a baby girl they gave her a doll
And they gave him a motor car and a tiny soldier boy
And they sent them out in the day's sun to play
And what they'd become would take many years to make.
Cho: In the war of conditioning, where they never use a gun
They only use people who fit in their plan
And those by the wayside have a long way to go
It's just not proper to stray from the foe.
Then they took away her doll and they gave her a home
And they took away his motor can and gave him a gun
And they sent them out in the day's sun to run
Running away from what they had become.
Then they took away her home and they gave her a rocking chair
And they took away his gun and they gave him a walking cane
And they sent them out in the day's sun to mourn
Mourn for a freedom that they'd never known.
