pegged for life lyrics – faction

i can’t help being the way that i am
it’s not paranoia, it’s uncle sam
the minute i was born they’ve had my prints
they use intimidation as their biggest hint
the boys at the capitol they know who you are
everything about you is on a little white card
s.s. numbers, now you’re pegged for life
a life under their watchful little eyes
i went to school, i didn’t know why
then i found out only later in life
i wasn’t there to learn like i had thought
i was being baby sat, that’s what i was taught
we pay them cash to live in a free land
why don’t they just charge us all to stand
i sit in my room at night wondering what they see
i also wonder what they have in store for me.
