Lyrics

It’s not intrusion
It’s just protection
Tag your location now
We call it Fairview

We searched your searches
You’re not a bad guy
Nothing to worry about
We call it Lithium

I know it seems like we are spying on you
That’s not what it’s about

We're always there when no one is watching
We’ll be looking out
We'll protect you
Swear we’re protecting you

It’s all up front there is no confusion
We’ll mitigate the doubts
We protect you from us protecting you
The methods that we use are sound

Down in the subway
Turns out my friend’s brown
They had to pat him down
And check my backpack

Out at the airport
Don’t like my passport
Let’s take that laptop out
Is this your husband?

I know it seems like we are picking on you
That’s not what it’s about

We are always there when no one is watching
We’ll be looking out
We protect you
Swear we’re protecting you

The oversight was quite conclusive
The panel checked us out
We protect you from us protecting you
No waste, fraud or abuse was found

That’s laughable
These bleeding hearts are soft
But they’ll be first in line to kiss our feet
Once the bombs start going off

Hey guys- WOW! This old album of ours turns 16 today- old enough to drive!
