Didn’t get much sleep - got up at the crack of dawn
Washing this face that’s looking back at me so forlorn
Arrive for work at some ungodly time
Day after day - I toe the line

There are many things that you hold to be true
But since you took the party line
You’ve got no point of view
You’d think that saying nothin’
Would be the bigger crime
Just saying nothin’ - and toeing the line

Do you remember the days
When you weren’t afraid to say
Just exactly what was on your mind
But now you’re grown
And your opinion is not your own
And the rebel’s cause you seek you can not find
So you toe the line

What happened to our dreams?
What happened to our hopes?
What became of the people
Who were different from their folks?
Don’t go showing dissent now
Or you’ll end up doing time
Just button your lip and toe the line
Toe the line
